  • The activities of the recruited researcher will contribute to the development of a 4.0 platform dedicated to virtualized human-environment interaction. In this context, the aim will be to develop tools that will contribute to the quality of the operator's interaction in the virtual environment from a biomechanical and ergonomic point of view.

    The following axes of work will thus be considered: - The quality of the interaction of the operator using a teleoperation system for robotic manipulation; - The production of an avatar of the human in the virtual environment in the context of the development of digital twins of industrial facilities and the modeling of associated interactions; - The programming of digital twins connected to real devices in the context of professional apprenticeships.

    At the CNRS, on the Futuroscope site, the Pprime Institute is recruiting a Researcher in command control and virtualisation for the research project entitled "For an ergonomic, human and interactive factory 4.0 by machine virtualization" supported by the New Aquitaine region (AAPR2020A-2020-8598010). This mission is integrated into the work of the joint ANR Macb laboratory in collaboration between the RoBioSS team of the Pprime Institute and the company ITECA located in Angoulême (16). The researcher will have to contribute to the development of criteria for optimizing the ergonomic and biomechanical comfort of human operators and to the programming of intuitive control modules for production cells.

    This recruitment is part of the joint laboratory ANR Macb carried by the team in collaboration with the company ITECA. In this context, a 4.0 platform dedicated to human-environment interaction must be set up.

    The RoBioSS (Robotics Biomechanics Sport and Health) team of the Mechanical Engineering and Complex Systems department of the PPRIME Institute has a dual competence in robotics and biomechanics (https: // www. It has technological platforms referenced in the Equipex Robotex network (https://; these platforms are intended to promote research actions based on collaborative projects between scientific and technical teams, laboratories and companies.

    Eligibility criteria

    The candidate recruited should hold the following skills: - Control - command of robotic devices - Industrial automation - Software development in C++ / virtual reality - Collaborative and open robotics - Mechanical modeling in robotics - Motion planning / synthesis - Scientific computing
