Robotics Internship (C++/ROS)

Job description

Internship description

This internship is especially designed for those people who want to learn to properly use ROS (Robot Operating System) and improve their C++ programming skills, while solving real life robotics and autonomous navigation problems. We have problem formulations for people with different technical backgrounds:

  • An academic background who have written scripts (such as Matlab) for their projects, but have never had to think about run time implementation details, code readability and code stability.
  • An extensive programming background where there is ample opportunity to improve their robotics and R&D skills.

Research scope and objectives

In a period of at least 3 months you will be able to work on tasks related to robot navigation, SLAM, sensor data processing, filtering & control and robotic intelligence in the context of our autonomous drone inspection system. These tasks will involve writing C++ code in the ROS framework for Linux. You will get a good grasp of how the framework can help you with the implementation of robotic software and will be reviewed by professionals to ensure active feedback and improvement. Testing your software and writing test reports is an integral part of this development process.

Job requirements

We look for people who have either a strong academic background in the area of robotics, or who have extensive programming knowledge. You preferably have some experience in writing C++ software including class abstractions, with examples of past work. Knowledge of ROS basics are helpful but not necessary, we assume you have done the beginner tutorials before you start working.

What we bring to the table
A comfortable and fun working environment:

  • Collaborating with a young, dynamic and multidisciplinary team in an innovative start-up.
  • Testing of your research on an available drone inspection platform in a real-world application.
  • Datasets and computational resources to conduct your research.
  • Unique chance to be part of a high-growth, successful start-up.

This internship will give you a good basis to work in ROS and C++ in a professional environment, a review of your performance and a recommendation on how you can continue to improve your skills.
