[Positions] Postdoc/engineer available at CRI Group, NTU, Singapore

 A postdoc/engineer position is available at the CRI Group, NTU, Singapore (
The prospective staff is expected to spearhead the development of an inspection robot in collaboration with a major aircraft manufacturing company. This project has very exciting commercialization potentials, in which the prospective staff can play a major role (more details will be given during the interview).

We are looking for applicants with strong programming skills (C++/Python) and who is an expert in one or both of the following fields:

- Robot vision (OpenCV, PCL, camera calibration, pose estimation,...)

- Robot systems (ROS, interfacing with industrial robots, F/T sensors, cameras, and other software such as OpenRAVE)

The position starts on January 1st, 2017 and is initially for 1 year, with possibilities of extension. Remunerations are competitive and will be commensurate with qualifications and experience.

Interested candidates are invited to send a CV and their most significant publications and/or software projects (e.g. Github repo) to

[Book] "Modern Robotics: Mechanics, Planning, and Control" by Kevin M. Lynch and Frank C. Park

 Our most recent version of the robotics textbook "Modern Robotics: Mechanics, Planning, and Control," by Kevin M. Lynch and Frank C. Park, is now available at this link. The first half of this book is based on the lecture notes for the edX course(Part I, Part II). The current pdf version is available online for free and should be considered a "beta" version. A final update will come before the end of November, 2016.

[News] TEAM SNU participates in DRC Finals on June 5-6, 2015
   The DRC (DARPA Robotics Challenge) is a competition of robot systems and software teams vying to develop robots capable of assisting humans in responding to natural and man-made disasters. The DRC Finals will take place from June 5-6, 2015 at Fairplex in Pomona, California. The DRC Finals will require robots to attempt a circuit of consecutive physical tasks, with degraded communications between the robots and their operators; the winning team will receive a $2 million prize. Team SNU (Seoul National University) is lead by Professor Jaeheung Park and is composed of three subgroups: Dynamic Robotic Systems Lab (control), Machine Intelligence & Pattern Analysis Lab (perception), and SimLab (software framework). Team SNU uses THORMANG developed by ROBOTIS.
