Research Engineer - aiNotate


Open positions & working at AImotive

Location: Budapest, Hungary

Research Engineer- aiNotate

Developing automated driving requires a complete, mature toolchain to collect, generate, use and manage the data needed for a safe and robust solution. aiData is the most advanced, data-driven pipeline for automated driving that reduces the complexity of the processing with high automatization while still ensuring automotive quality.

An accurate understanding of the surroundings of the vehicle is at the heart of self-driving applications, detecting and providing 3D properties of the objects surrounding the vehicle is one of the fundamental building blocks in delivering a reliable autonomous vehicle. In order to enable high-quality detections, error-free training data for neural networks is essential. As a Research Engineer in the aiNotate team, you will take part in prototyping new solutions, porting prototypes as reliable modules into the auto-annotation pipeline generating training data for neural networks used in real-time self-driving applications, and improving and benchmarking existing solutions. You will work in different environments like driving on a highway, city and you will see your code running in aiMotive’s and customer’s data pipeline.

Job Summary

  •  Research, develop and implement algorithms to improve the quality and robustness of the auto-annotation pipeline using supervised, self-supervised and active learning
  • Develop detection and tracking solutions based on various sensor data
  • Integrate prototype models into the auto-annotation pipeline
  • Support the development and automation of the data collection pipeline

Key Qualifications

  • MS, or PhD in Computer Science, Robotics, Physics, Mathematics, or related field
  • Strong Python programming and software design skills
