Postdoctoral researcher in information technology with focus intelligent vehicles

A full-time employment for two years with starting date as soon as possible.
The research will focus on making future self-driving and autonomous vehicles situation aware with the goal of making them more intelligent. The successful candidate will work on developing methods and algorithms based on signal processing and machine learning to recognize, describe, and reason about objects in the environment. This will result in a system that is situation aware since actions of other agents operating in the environment can be foreseen and concerns can be made on objects’ identities. This will entail developing novel methods and algorithms for extracting and combine information (considering uncertainty) coming from different sensor systems (installed on the mobile robot), aggregate knowledge gained from perception or by means of information and representing knowledge and information in semantic maps. The work also includes demonstrations of the practicability of the developed methods and algorithms.

The project that the candidate will be involved in is named “Situation Aware Safety System” with our industry partners Kollmorgen, Toyota Material Handling Europe, Fotonic and Volvo AB. The focus is on next generation safety system, able to handle more complex scenarios, with functions for track and predict actions of other agents in the environment with the goal of safe and efficient operation.

The position is funded by CAISR (Center for Applied Intelligent Systems Research), which is a long-term research program on intelligent systems at the School of Information Technology.
