Are you a bachelor or master student in computer science, systems & control, embedded systems, mechatronics, robotics, or similar? Do you have a high interest for or some experience with complex algorithms within the field of industrial robotics? Are topics like optimization problems and path planning tailor-made for you? Then we are looking for you!

Robot Trajectory Planning Internship

Your assignment

This internship focuses on a cognitive algorithm for complex path-planning in industrial

robotics defining the needs, goals and requirements plus advancing navigation


Recently, a new industrial application started from zero. Because of its complexity,

basic prototyping started and is advancing using an industrial robot with the basic

principles being covered. Nevertheless, some issues still remain within the cognitive

domain. Given the complex nature of the application, particular attention goes to the

path-planning optimization procedure.

The study starts with redefining application requirements, goals and constraints.

Followed by analysing different path-planning strategies most suitable to the

application. Last but not least, a functional algorithm must be implemented


This internship is intended as a graduation project for bachelor and master students.

Your time

The preferred start is September 2024. Its duration depends on the weekly availability of the student (minimum 5-6 months fulltime equivalent).

Your profile

You have a real passion for robotics, creating intelligent software for solving optimization problems, starting from zero in a creative and inventive way.

Therefore, you are:

  • a bachelor/master student in computer science, information technology, software engineering, systems & control, embedded systems, robotics, mechatronics or similar;
  • a strong affinity with complex topics like guidance, optimization problems & cognitive adaptation.
  • highly interested in robotic path-planning, or better, have some experience with it;
  • comfortable with development environments and SCM tools like Linux, Git, GitHub;
  • having programming skills (any or some Python, .Net, C++) and eager to learn more;
  • effective communication in English or Dutch.

Bonus points if you are someone who:

  • has practical experience with programming and handling Fanuc robots, notably the teach pendant;

Your return

Deltrao offers a varied and challenging workplace within a technology-oriented, entrepreneurial environment. As an Intern you can definitely count on:

  • competitive remuneration, as awarded in the Spaansen Group;
  • mutual consultation with regard to weekly activity and a flexible workplace;
  • and of course, being part of an enthusiastic and fun team who are eager to teach you the tricks of trade.

Your working environment

Deltrao is a start-up with a focus on innovation, founded by the Spaansen Groep and an entrepreneur graduated at TU Delft. Thanks to its location in Geldermalsen, the company is centrally located in the country, having good accessibility both by public transport and by own transport.

The multidisciplinary team, with young engineers, is constantly creating and realizing a high-tech solution within the context of New Product Development (NPD). Everything from a shared passion for technology and innovation.

This results in an informal atmosphere within a professional, dynamic working environment, in which communication is open and with an eye for your personal and professional development
