Agro-robotics and computation solid mechanics (WUR – PD)

In the agri-food domain, fast and effective manipulation of very delicate products is a key issue that has not received much attention yet. This post-doc will design flexible gripping of soft materials, considering natural variability in food product shape and size, and will be a linking pin between the challenging real-life application and the fundamental bio-inspired concepts developed by the other WU post-doc and tenure track.
