Internship/graduation, hbo&wo: Robot communication over unreliable networks

Solliciteer direct

Are you looking for a challenging and educational internship or graduation assignment in the field of autonomous robotics? Would you like to apply the theoretical knowledge that you’ve obtained during your studies on advanced simulations and physical robots? Then you are at the right place at Demcon Defense & Security Systems!

Over Demcon

At Demcon you will find a growing and innovative company with very motivated people. We work in multidisciplinary teams on technically highly complex projects. We share an open, informal, cooperative, and inspired working atmosphere. We like new challenges and are willing to take things a step further. The Robotics Competence Group is a network of engineers working on technology development and customer projects. As intern, you will be part of this group. You will get a good impression of what it is to be part of the robotics team at Demcon. <

Wat ga je doen?

Demcon Defense & Security uses various robotic control and sensor processing algorithms, which require information from other software modules. We use ROS 2 to facilitate the communication between these modules over ethernet. However, there are situations where modules run on systems that are not on a wired connection to the other modules, requiring the use of lossy connections like Wi-Fi, LTE or other wireless data links. To that end we want to investigate the viability of using ROS 2 over lossy and interruptible connections, and to determine how to best configure such a setup to achieve sufficient reliability.

Your internship would consist of: designing tests to verify the performance of ROS 2 with various network connection types (ethernet, Wi-Fi, LTE) and ROS 2/DDS configurations. This includes specifying the tests themselves and the critical performance indicators, setting up a test environment to perform the tests, and reporting the results with recommendations with respect to the suitability of ROS 2 on the different types of networks; and finally the recommended configuration of ROS 2 and DDS on the suitable networks.

The ideal candidate for this assignment is either looking for an HBO (university of applied sciences) graduation or internship assignment or a WO (University) internship assignment.

Wat breng je mee?

  • Studying for a BSc or MSc. at hbo or wo, in programmes such as Computer Science, Systems & Control, Robotics, Electrical engineering or Artificial Intelligence.
  • Affinity with networking and communication systems.
  • Analytical and independent.
  • Enthusiastic and proactive.
  •  Interested in robotics technology and autonomous vehicles.
  • Available for at least 16 weeks (preferably more) to work at our location in Enschede.
  • Experience with ROS(2) is a plus.

Wat bieden we jou?

  • A challenging and educational internship in a cooperative, multidisciplinary team where you work on the current state of the art robotic systems in the Netherlands.
  • Depending on the assignment, the possibility to test your work on physical autonomous robots (UGVs and occasionally drones)!
  • A direct day-to-day technical supervisor. A market-based internship compensation.
  • The chance to experience how it is to work in a team at Demcon!
