Research Engineer Intern

aiDrive is an inherently scalable self-driving full-stack software. Utilizing an economical vision-first redundant sensor setup aiDrive offers a safe autonomous experience. Relying on powerful artificial intelligence and robust sensor fusion it is prepared for self-driving in any environment, climate, or driving culture. Its simulator-tested and real-world-proven autonomous valet parking and highway autopilot capabilities are under constant public road testing in Hungary and in the US. 

Our automated driving SW stack aiDrive will be deployed to millions of production vehicles in the upcoming years, thanks to our recently announced OEM partnership. In the course of this development journey, you will be able to impact and witness the creation of state-of-the-art automated driving applications on highways, interurban and urban areas, as well as parking situations, using the latest automotive sensor technologies and advanced machine learning algorithms. All this will be supported by fleet data at scale, paired with our unique data pipeline and infrastructure as provided by aiMotive’s aiData.
