The West Virginia University Research Corporation is seeking applications for a Robot Controls Engineer. This position will assist the WV Robotic Technology Center with applied expertise in advanced robotic control and implementation. A particular task of interest is supporting NASA GSFC and LaRC in the development of a ground-based simulator for a controlled restraint system (CRS) for the Asteroid Redirect Mission. The CRS simulator implements a triad of planar robotic arms on an air-bearing surface to simulate capture of an asteroid. The simulator uses advanced control modeling and visual navigation to perform asteroid capture dynamic simulation. This position performs a vital and wide-ranging role in the robot control architecture and simulator development. This position will be primarily responsible for generating debugging and tuning the algorithms associated with the CRS control system and provide analytic assistance to other engineering groups such as analysis of the structure and targeting for the navigation system.In order to be successful in this position the ideal candidate will:Robotics kinematic and dynamic simulator development Simulink or Linux/C++ environmentDeployment on real-time robotic hardware platformsAll aspects of the modern software development lifecycle: unit testing continuous integration version control debugging documentationSupport to the users for setting up new robotics experimentsVEVRAA Federal ContractorRequest Priority Protected Veteran ReferralsEOE -Veteran /Disabled/Minority/AA/F/M/SO
