The school of EECS announces a PhD position within the Horizon-Europe Innovation Council (EIC) project “ Symbolic Logic Framework for Situational Awareness in Mixed Autonomy (SymAware)”. The ultimate goal of this project is to develop a framework that enables robots to actively perceive risks in dynamically changing environments and collaborate with other robots and humans to improve their awareness while aiming at fulfilling complex and dynamically changing tasks. The position will involve the topics of multi-agent planning and control, formal methods, and situational awareness with an emphasis on human-in-the-loop. The doctoral student will develop novel algorithms to model the spatiotemporal awareness associated with a team of agents interacting with humans. The student will further design decentralized planning and decision- making algorithms to satisfy formal specifications and minimize the violations from potential task conflicts according to quantifiable robustness metrics.
