Webseite Zürcher Hochschule für Angewandte Wissenschaften

You can join a dynamic and highly interdisciplinary team

You can join a dynamic and highly interdisciplinary team to help in either technical work on groundbreaking technology for assistive robots: event-based camera, neuromorphic computing hardware, and novel motion control strategies; or help with performing user studies on requirements and acceptability of assistive robots in healthcare and elderly care.

Version 1, Technical internship: 

  • You will write software to test a new smart event-based camera that we have recently built 
  • You will implement and test neural-network architectures for object detection and tracking or for 3D vision using this camera 
  • You will document the software and write a report about your work 
  • This work can be formulated as a BSc or MSc thesis and might lead to scientific publications or dem OR

Version 2, User study internship: 

  • You will help to develop questionnaires and use case scenarios (story boards) to find out the requirements, needs, and challenges for robotic assistants in healthcare
  • You will help determine the relevant stakeholders and fine-tune the interview questions to different groups 
  • You will conduct the interviews online or face to face 
  • You will analyze the results of the interviews and help formulate a hierarchy of use cases, their requirements and constraints and write a report about the study 
  • This work may lead to a publication and can be the basis for a BSc or MSc thesis

Option 1: 

  • BSc or MSc in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering or similar
  • Good programming skills (python, c++); 
  • Experience with Machine Learning and/or Computer Vision and/or Robotics

Option 2: 

  • BSc or MSc in Social Sciences, Humanities, or Life Sciences
