PhD position: TITUS: Telexistence In Through-life engineering Services
Cranfield University, Grenoble University and dstl are seeking a top class candidate to undertake research leading to PhD awarded. The thesis will be driven by John Erkoyuncu from Cranfield with Samuel Court in collaboration with G-SCOP in Grenoble (co-advisor Fr. Noël).
Telexistence provides a means to complete maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) activities remotely that have the risk of causing physical injury and harm to the maintainer, or the by the same method, exceed the normal human capabilities of the individual with physical augmentation able to deal with increased loads without additional human manpower. Combined with non-destructive testing (NDT) methods, this research seeks to develop novel methods for state-of-the-art remote virtual reality simulation for digital-twin robotic avatars.
