Research Engineer, 3D Computer Vision / SLAM
SAIC Motors is the largest car manufacturer in China selling more than 6 million cars annually. SAIC USA is a fully owned subsidiary that engages in research and development for cutting edge technologies such as autonomous driving and Human Computer Interfaces. We have an opening at our Innovation Center in San Jose, CA in the Autonomous Driving team.
As a Research Engineer, you will utilize your expertise in the field of robotics, computer vision, deep learning and AI to some of the most challenging problems in automated driving. Working at SAIC Innovation Center, you will innovate with engineers at the top of their fields in motion control and machine learning. You will be creating new technologies through algorithm and software development that integrates your expertise in 3D computer vision to build a map using multiple sensors such as stereo cameras and Lidar sensors. You will also develop novel algorithms to localize the car in this map and integrate other recognized objects such as traffic signs, cars, and pedestrians in this map.
- PhD in computer science, electrical engineering, or a related field
- MS with relevant working experience in computer science, electrical engineering, or a related field
- 5+ years of experience in software development using C++/Java/Python.
- Candidates with significantly more experience are encouraged to apply.
- Domain expertise with one or more of the following:
SLAM (Simultaneous Localization and Mapping)
GPS and inertial navigation
3D computer vision
Lidar data (point clouds) processing
Fundamentals in 3D geometry and linear algebra
Strong expertise in nonlinear optimization
Strong expertise in Bayesian filtering such as KF, EKF, and particle filter
Experience with computer vision libraries such as OpenCV and PCL
Experience with deep learning and GPU programming
ROS / Linux experience
Ability to understand and implement complex algorithms efficiently and correctly
Comfortable working in an environment where problems are not always well-defined.
Inquisitive, proactive, and interested in learning new tools and techniques
These roles will challenge the boundaries of your problem-solving, and will be rewarding as your prototype creations are transitioned and deployed in real-world environments. When you join the SAIC team, you will discover all the benefits, rewards and development opportunities you’d expect from a diverse global leader. You’ll become part of a fast paced team that is pushing the boundaries of technologies and customer experience.
