Internship_Magnetic Force Sensor for Robotics_4 to 6 months - Bevaix, Switzerland
Your future job
As an intern at Melexis, you will develop a magnetic force sensor.
More specifically, you will:
Investigate creative concepts for novel magnetic force sensors for robotic “gripping” applications—giving robots the sense of touch.
Model the most promising concept to quantify the performance (sensitivity, spatial resolution ...).
Build & characterize a prototype in the lab out of existing sensor chips.
Integrate the sensor with a robotic hand and control algorithm.
Demonstrate the sensor benefits in a challenging robotic application: gripping fragile objects (fruits, ...).
- A concept outperforming the state of the art.
- A working prototype with supporting evidence such as simulation, lab results, and application demos.
- A final feasibility report and a presentation to be delivered to internal customers.
Analytical skills and ability to translate insight into novel solutions.
Experience in conducting experimental tasks and device characterization (controlling instruments ...).
Experience with PCB design and layouting software (Altium).
Data analysis skills (e.g. matlab, python).
Preferred: affiliation with EPFL.
A challenging internship in a dynamic high-tech international environment.
An enjoyable, team-oriented and professional atmosphere in a flat-structured organization.
