Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) in manufacturing and On-Wing Technology, The University of Nottingham.
Applicants are invited to undertake a 3 year PhD programme in partnership with industry to address key challenges in on-platform manufacturing engineering. The successful candidate will be based at The Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre (UTC) in Manufacturing and On-Wing Technology at University of Nottingham.
This project is in relation to the technical needs of Rolls-Royce to develop smart and robotic solutions to enable in-situ/on-wing repair and maintenance of gas turbine engines.
At the Rolls-Royce UTC at University of Nottingham we have developed robotic systems capable to navigate into crammed/hazardous environments and perform inspection and active operations such as machining. This is driven by the need to complete repair tasks without disassembly of industrial installations. We developed a series of continuum robots in both short and long versions.
At the Rolls-Royce UTC we are developing the next generation of continuum robots and other robotic solutions to perform tasks within restrictive environments.
This project builds on these research/industrial successes and proposes computer vison and control solutions for automated robotic systems capable to be tele-operated using smart human-machine interfaces.
This is an exciting PhD project that has a combination of academic and industrial challenges which will enhance the student’s ability to tackle complex intellectual and practical aspects of computer vision and robotics.
We are seeking talented candidates with:
â¾First or upper second class degree in Robotics/Computer Science/Cybernetics/Mechatronics/Mechanical or related scientific discipline.
â¾First rate analytical and numerical skills, with a well-rounded academic background.
â¾Demonstrated ability to develop precision mechatronics system and algorithm
â¾Ability to develop kinematic and/or dynamic analysis of mechanical/robotic systems
â¾Ability to implement control and kinematics with hardware-in-the–loop
â¾Background with relevant packages, (MATLAB, ROS/ OpenCV/ python, LabVIEW/C languages)
â¾A driven, professional and self-dependent work attitude is essential
â¾Experience of working within industry will be an advantage
â¾The ability to produce high quality presentations and written reports
This is an excellent opportunity to work on a novel robotic system with strong links to industrial applications and key skills and knowledge in preparation for a high-impact, high-technology research or industrial career.
The scholarship on offer comprises a tax-free stipend of £18,000 a year; tuition fees paid and a generous study package.
Please contact the UTC director, Prof Dragos Axinte, for further information.
