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.
With experience in one or several of the following areas:
- 6.835:Intelligent multimodal user interfaces
Compensation: Paid, 40hrs per week (early-June ~ late-August); Potential for middle authorship on one or more groundbreaking journal articles.
