Senior Humanoid Modeling Robotics Architect

Company Details

To accelerate the world’s transition to sustainable energy.

What to Expect

The Tesla humanoid robotics modeling team is looking for a highly skilled and motivated colleague that would like to help building the next generation biped robot. You will be working closely with a multi-disciplinary team with the goal to build a humanoid robot that can support manufacturing operators in tedious and exhaustive tasks.

What You’ll Do

  • Robot modelling architecture
  • Conceptual design of piped robots
  • Accurate modeling of kinematic chains
  • Abstraction and conversion of joint mechanisms into rigid body trees
  • Physics/model representations of joints, limbs
  • Design and support of new mechanisms
  • Measurement and matching of model and simulation
  • Complex controls simplification for fast analysis

What You’ll Bring

  • BS in Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics, or equivalent of experience and evidence of exceptional abilities.
  • 3+ years’ experience with controls system development, modeling, and implementation.
  • Excellent background in linear systems analysis, stability, and controller design.
  • Creating dynamic models of electrical, mechanical, and thermal systems.
  • Experience, understanding, and intuition for the physics of basic electric propulsion, motion control systems, and heat transfer.
  • Knowledge in control systems including, spring loaded inverted pendulum, Zero Momentum Control,
  • Model Predictive Control, Motor controls, etc.
  • Modeling knowledge in inverse kinematics, inverse/forward dynamics, impedance control, torque control, etc.
  • Basic design of electric motors & power electronics & control circuits.
  • Familiar with gear reduction mechanisms including: Planetary, Belt drives, Harmonics Drives, Magnetic Gears, etc.
  • Strong mechanical skills, including design, manufacturing limits, mechanical linkages, design for manufacturing
  • Strong programming skills in Matlab/Simulink, Python, C++, SQL, etc.
  • Strong skills in CAD (CATIA, NX, Inventor, Solid Works, etc.)
