INTERNSHIP SENSORS AND ACTUATORS FOR ROBOTICS (M/F/D) - Job Schönaich - Career

INTERNSHIP SENSORS AND ACTUATORS FOR ROBOTICS (M/F/D)

HACKING THE PHYSICS AND ECONOMICS OF MOTION CONTROL WITH DIGITAL TECHNOLOGY

At Synapticon we’re reshaping the world of motion control for robotics and machinery at the point of motion.

The company introduces an entirely new approach to motion axes by integrating formerly discrete components, such as motors, drives, sensors and gearboxes into seamless units and digitising performance and quality factors that are so far dependent on costly mechanical manufacturing. Innovation leaders around the world choose to work with Synapticon to path their way into the future of intelligent, motion control-related systems.  Be part of it, join Synapticon!

YOUR TASKS

As an Intern in the field of Sensors and Actuators for Robotics you will push the limits of performance  for our highly integrated servo drives. Together with you, we will tailor your job-profile around some of the following key areas:

  • Hands-on on our latest products and prototypes!

  • Integrated encoder systems: performance validation and quality control

  • Validation of model-based control algorithms in simulation and in hardware using a rapid control prototyping system (Speedgoat)

  • Participation in motion control features development and testing

  • General support of the Validation Team

  • Testbench design and operation 

  • System based product and function validation
     

    About the Validation Team at Synapticon 

    To ensure that all the awesome features and products developed by our engineers can exceed in every situation, they pass through the lab of the validation team first. We are responsible for understanding and validating the system level requirement for every function and product developed, aid with parameterization of features, rating of products and system level support during development and pre-development. For this we use state of the art measurement equipment in addition to custom test benches designed in house. We are responsible for the whole validation process, including prototyping of functions, test scenario and setup planning, test bench development, data acquisition, data evaluation and result documentation. In addition to this we also aid the developers with improvement suggestions and knowledge of the overall system.

Hi! We’re about 60 experts actively looking to expand our talent. 

Our engineering team is from all walks of life, countries, and cultures. Our diversity drives our creativity, and we look forward to having your unique outlook shape our product.

Working hours and location are flexible at Synapticon, because working families need that. Although you may need to be beside your robot for much of the day, we understand that sometimes getting away from the problem to think is the better approach.

Our unique SoC microprocessor has a massive amount of processing power, available to build unique, real world physics-defying algorithms right into the robot joint. We strive to use the best technology for the problems we are working to solve.
