[Apologies for cross-postings]

Scania is seeking outstanding and highly-motivated research engineers to join the fast growing Autonomous Transport Solutions group. As the capabilities of Scania's robotic platform continuously increase, new, interesting challenges arise in the fields of situation awareness, task planning, multi-vehicle coordination, fleet optimization, execution monitoring and accurate non-holonomic motion planning, just to mention a few. Scania's mission is to shape the transport solutions of the future, working on autonomy, efficiency and sustainability: Autonomous vehicles must be able to understand their surrounding environment, to take smart decisions and to implement them without continuous supervision; At a fleet level, multi-vehicle coordination and transport optimization are essential to reduce congestions and minimize environmental impact.

= Your task =

You will join a well-established group whose focus is to design and develop algorithms and techniques for smart decision making for autonomous vehicles. We focus on different aspects of the autonomous transport problem: 
* Coordinating the operation of a fleet of autonomous heavy vehicles in different, full scale settings
* Interpreting traffic situations both on highways and in urban settings
* Automatically generating safe and efficient action plans in complex traffic situations
* Planning optimized trajectories for vehicle maneuvering
* Execution monitoring both at vehicle and fleet level

Each team member 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 our test vehicles.

= Your profile =

A successful candidate must hold a PhD in Robotics, Computer Science or a related field, or a Master degree and 5+ years of relevant work experience. The candidate should have understanding of and experience with one or more of following areas:
* Sensor fusion
* World modelling
* Probabilistic reasoning
* Planning and scheduling
* Constraint programming
* Automated reasoning
* Mixed integer programming
* Multi-objective optimization 
* Motion planning

Strong analytical skills and a solid mathematical foundation are also required, as well as provable hands-on experience in designing and developing algorithms and good understanding of computer systems. The candidate will also have several years of development experience in at least one of the following languages/environments: C/C++, Java and 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.

= About us =

Our group is part of Scania Research and Development, and we focus on long term development of sustainable transport systems. We have the ambitious tasks of drastically reducing the environmental footprint, increasing the efficiency of the entire transport system and to develop solutions for eliminating traffic accidents.
Our facilities are situated in Södertälje, a medium-size city located only 20 minutes away from the heart of Stockholm, Sweden.
