Location: Budapest, Hungary

Senior AI Research Scientist

aiDrive is an automated driving platform with revolutionary virtual sensor technology that brings unparalleled data reusability for all levels of autonomy and different sensor setups. Using the latest available camera and radar sensors as well as navigational map support, aiMotive can create state-of-the-art Highway Assist solutions with Automatic Lane Change and Highway Interchange Management. aiDrive can also enable vehicles to move through and park in structured parking environments without the driver being in or near the car with its proprietary Automated Valet Parking Application.

An accurate understanding of the surroundings of the vehicle is at the heart of self-driving applications, detecting and providing a 3D properties of the objects surrounding the vehicle is one of the fundamental building blocks in delivering a reliable autonomous vehicle.

As a Research Scientist in the Object detection 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 and you will see your code running in real cars on multiple continents.
