At Delft University of Technology, we are looking for a PhD candidate
with a background in computer science/Artificial Intelligence,
experience with semantic web languages and ontology design, and
experience with human-robot interaction.

The PhD project is part of the EU project Long-Term Human-Robot Teaming
for Robot-Assisted Disaster Response (TRADR; see
http://www.tradr-project.eu/).

Using a human-centred design methodology, we develop decision support
for human-robot teams to assist in disaster response efforts over
multiple sorties during a mission. Semantic web technologies will be
used to make the experience of the team persistent and to support
establishing situation awareness within a team of human operators and
robots over multiple, possibly asynchronous sorties. An ontological
knowledge base and agent-based reasoning mechanisms are being developed
to harmonise the team's work and information processes with the
available human-robot resources and the dynamic context of these sorties.

The focus of the PhD will be on the development of tools to enhance team
awareness and to support coordination of the human-robot team. Part of
the work will therefore involve developing the display logic of a user
interface for exchanging and sharing information within the team. The
situational awareness tools and components will be integrated into the
cognitive agent framework that supports coordination of the team. The
goal of this work is to establish a more seamless interaction between
robots and humans in human-robot teamwork situations.

Deadline for application May 31.
