Our client is a deep tech driverless vehicle start-up that are building the next generation mobility and connectivity platforms for the safe integration of driverless vehicles into the existing transport network. Due to recent project wins they are growing their technical teams.

Their full-stack platform is vehicle agnostic, highly scalable, and built on patented award-winning and world-leading machine learning algorithms. They utilise cutting-edge technology in IoT, Big Data, AI and ML to maximise user experience and accessibility, improve productivity and minimise environmental impact for our clients.

They are on a mission to find the very best people to be part of their success and join the driverless revolution that will transform the world.

Reporting to the Chief Engineer, the essence of this role is to develop and integrate sensor processing modules and provide a sensor fusion approach that can identify a variety of objects necessary to allow vehicle automation to function as required. Their solution is required to operate a 100kph and identify some unusually difficult object; hence a knowledge of AI based image processing techniques and approaches is essential

Their approach is to be technology agnostic and as such the role may involve integrating third party functions with their own to provide an improved automation implementation.

You will be supporting the development and implementation of SLAM systems and will be tasked with the design and deployment of Visual SLAM libraries as well as getting involved with both new and existing research.This role requires significant existing knowledge as well as a keen passion and enthusiasm to work as a team on one of the most exciting technical challenges of this era.
