HRL has an opening for a paid internship in robotics. The project's objective is perception/surveillance of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs).
I need an intern who is enthusiastic about robotics and has expertise in computer vision, UAV dynamics, and control. This project requires development of software, not hardware. The position is available immediately, and the duration of the project is until the end of this year.
HRL Laboratories, LLC in sunny Malibu, California, is one of the world’s leading research institutes and is owned by both the Boeing Company and General Motors. HRL is an officially recognized IEEE Milestone and APS Physics Historic Site for being the place to invent the first working Laser. Apart from this historic moment, HRL held many world records - e.g., most powerful solid state Laser in 2005 and lightest material in 2011 - and we are looking forward to add more.
