[robotics-worldwide] [jobs] New Research Engineer Positions for Autonomous Driving at Scania
[Apologies for cross-postings]
We are recruiting research engineers who will contribute to shape the transport systems of the future. The successful candidate will join the Tactical Planning team, and he/she will contribute to the design, development and testing of algorithms for autonomous drive. This includes, but it is not limited to, processing large amount of data to correctly interpret the surroundings of the vehicle (situation awareness), ensuring that correct decisions are made during operation (behaviour selection and execution monitoring), timely diagnosing potential problems (safety management), and motion planning.
Each member of the Tactical Team is expected to work in close cooperation with the other colleagues and to participate in the whole software development cycle, from algorithmic design and prototype implementation to testing in simulation and on real heavy vehicles.
A successful candidate must hold a PhD in Robotics, Computer Science or a related field, or a Master degree and 3+ years of relevant work experience. Strong analytical skills and a solid mathematical foundation are also required, as well as provable hands-on experience in designing and developing algorithms and a good understanding of computer systems. The candidate will also have several years of development experience in C++ and/or Matlab/Simulink. Previous work with robotic systems or autonomous vehicles is highly desirable. Candidates must be able to work both independently and in a collaborative environment.
Our team is part of Scania Research and Development, and we focus on long term development of sustainable transport systems. We come from both academic and industrial backgrounds, and we all share the ambitious goal of drastically reducing the environmental footprint, increasing the efficiency of the entire transport system and developing solutions for eliminating traffic accidents.
Our facilities are situated in SÃ¶dertÃ¤lje, a medium size city located only 20 minutes away from the heart of Stockholm, Sweden.
