Projectmanager Ontwikkeling (Dutch)

Odd.Bot is een jonge onderneming die een zeer innovatieve machine om onkruid te wieden heeft ontwikkeld. Odd.Bot wil volgend jaar omschakelen naar serieproductie in samenwerking met professionele toeleveranciers. Voor het coördineren van de faseovergang – van ontwerp naar realisatie oftewel productie – is Odd.Bot op zoek naar een enthousiaste Projectmanager.

  • Holiday pay
  • Possibility to work from home
  • Laptop and company phone
  • Flexible working hours
  • Training budget

Internship positions

We are seeking enthousiastic students looking for fully supported and exciting research internships! Below you can read about the vacant intern positions, which can be done fully from home, so COVID-19 proof.

Laser removal of weeds

We at Odd.Bot aim to remove weeds using environmentally friendly solutions, currently we mechanically grip and remove the weeds with a robotic arm. But we are also looking into quicker, more efficient methods in which laser removal is a promising concept. The student would develop concepts for a subsystem which can point a laser beam at the location of the weed determined by our machine learning algorithm. Securing accuracy, robustness and safety in a moist and harsh enviroment would be the main challenge to tackle.

Apply

Crop health detection

Odd.Bot’s current implementation focusses on autonomous crop and weed detection to mechanically remove the latter. The assignment would include research into which data to collect and using which sensors to allow crop health monitoring. Think of photosynthesis, water content, fungus or disease detection using for example UV or infrared cameras. The student can use the results from this research to order hardware and write preliminary code that extracts this data and test it on different kinds of plants. If time allows, it can even be implemented on one of the current Odd.Bot prototypes.

You will be in great company

See what previous interns have to say about Odd.Bot!

During my internship at Odd.Bot I developed a program that estimates soil moisture using publicly available data. This allows the Odd.Bot team to optimize their planning regarding the deployment of their robots to the field of the clients. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I had to work independently from abroad, but with the feedback and help from the team when needed, I created a useful tool for Odd.Bot whilst I learned a lot regarding agriculture and software development.

Álvaro García - Automation intern (2021)

Working with Odd.Bot has been a great experience for me, even during the pandemic. I have had a lot of freedom to work independently on very interesting and diverse projects and there was always support there when needed.

Steve Howard - Mechatronics Intern (2020-2021)

During my internship at Odd.Bot I was assigned to design a novel plant gripper for the robot. The other Engineers gave me plenty feedback but also allowed me to operate independently. This taught me a lot about the development of a complex robot as well as teamwork. The gripper I designed and built turned out to be a valuable asset for Odd.Bot and after my internship the team hired me to continue developing new grippers and other parts for the prototype.
