POSITION 1:  PAID UROP (Summer 2017, FALL/IAP) 

Human Robot Interaction for Autonomous Mobile Robots

The Future Mobility Team at the Media Lab is developing a new generation mobility platform and urban infrastructure to revolutionize the way we move people and goods in cities.  In contrast with the industry’s dominant car-centric approach of concentrating on the 4-wheel automobile and its driver-centric UI, the Media Lab focuses on the human-scale, pedestrian-friendly mobility solutions that bring more convenience, style and well-being to contemporary urban life.  

Transforming the scale and technology of the vehicle also necessitates a redefinition of the communication between human and the computer/robot in order to enable co-existence, trust and collaboration between the two.  This role calls for a highly creative technologist to join the Future Mobility Team to contribute to shaping a new category of HCI and potentially universalize a new language and the way of communication.
