Research engineer – Road model


Open positions & working at AImotive

Location: Budapest, Hungary

Research engineer – Road model

Detecting and providing a 3D model of the static environment around the vehicle is at the heart of self-driving applications - accurate understanding of the position and other characteristics of lane sepators, road signs and traffic signs are among the most important building blocks in delivering a reliable and highly performant autonomous vehicle.

As a Research Engineer in the Road model team, you will take part in prototyping new solutions, porting prototypes as reliable modules into real-time self-driving applications, and improving and benchmarking existing solutions. You will work in different environments like driving on a highway, city or parking lot, and you will see your code running in real cars on multiple continents.
