has 2 open

PHD positions (application deadline June 10th, 12:00 noon CEST, strict)

The DLS Lab is known for cutting-edge research in the area of 
high-performance legged robots. The Lab's main research platform is the 
hydraulic robot HyQ and its successor HyQ2Max, two unique research 
platforms. Both are fully torque controlled hydraulic quadruped robots 
equipped with inertial measurement units, laser range finders and stereo 
cameras. Since 2011 HyQ has demonstrated a wide range of static and 
dynamic motions such as a crawl gait, walking trot over flat, inclined 
and rough terrain (indoors and outdoors), squat jumps, rearing, 
balancing under disturbances and step reflexes:
