Scene Format Conversion Tool for Robotics Simulation (MA Thesis)

Motivation:

With robotics playing a significant role in various domains, simulation is essential for developing and testing algorithms. Multiple simulators are available, each with its own specialized format (SDF, USD, MJCF, URDF, FBX) for describing scenes. This diversity of formats makes it challenging to transfer scenarios between simulators. Therefore, a versatile parser that can convert scene descriptions between these formats is highly valuable.

Task Description:

The objective of this project is to develop a universal parser capable of converting scene descriptions between common formats. The following key steps are involved:

  1. Create a model to represent and store the scene graph.
  2. Implement import functions for the model to handle scene descriptions in any of the supported formats.
  3. Implement export functions for the model to generate scene descriptions in any of the supported formats.

Requirements:

  • A strong passion for robotics.
  • Dedication to the chosen topic.
  • Eager to learn.

Development of Modules for Robot Perception (Student Job / HiWi)

In our research group, we focus on the development of intelligent robots that are combining modern computer vision methods with knowledge representation. We are offering multiple Hiwi positions / student jobs for software development in the context of our Robot Perception framework RoboKudo, which contains many algorithms for computer vision problems (mainly Python).

Requirements:

  • Solid experience in python and object-oriented programming
  • Basic understanding of the ROS middleware and Linux
  • Basic understanding of computer vision methods

The spoken language in this job is german or english, based on your preference. Work can be done fully remote.

Game Engine Developer and 3D-Modelling (Student Job / HiWi)

A recent development in the field of AI is the usage of photorealistic simulations, for example to create digital twins of environments like households or factories. In our research group, we focus on the development of modern robots that can make use of the potential of game engines. This requires a high degree of specialized game engine plugins that can simulate certain aspects of our research. Another important task is the creation of 3d models.

Therefore, we are offering multiple Hiwi positions / student jobs for the following tasks:

  • Modelling of objects for the use in Unreal Engine 4.
  • Creation of specific simulation aspects in Unreal Engine 4. For example the development of interactable objects.

Requirements:

  • Knowledge of 3D-Modelling tools. Blender would be highly preferred.
  • Experience in Game Engine development. Ideally Unreal Engine 4 and C++.

The spoken language in this job is german or english, based on your preference.

Roboterdemos in einer smarten Küche

Zur Unterstützung im Teilprojekt F (Laborinfrastruktur) des SFB EASE suchen wir ab dem 01.07.2024 für 74 Stunden im Monat eine engagierte, studentische Hilfskraft. Im Rahmen der Stelle sollen kleine Pick-and-Place-Demos mit verschiedenen Robotern, wie dem Stretch 2 von Hello Robot und dem TIAGo++ von Pal Robotics, entwickelt werden. Dazu soll außerdem eine Schnittstelle für eine vorhandene Miele API geschrieben werden und an einen ROS-Service angebunden werden. Damit können die Roboter selbstständig die smarten Küchengeräte steuern.

Voraussetzungen für den Job sind:

  • Kenntnisse in Python
  • Studium an der Uni Bremen in Informatik oder Digital Media
  • Selbstständiges Arbeiten
