The Institute for Infocomm Research (http://www.i2r.a-star.edu.sg/) is a
member of the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) family.

I2R's vision is to power a vibrant and strong infocomm ecosystem in
Singapore. The Autonomous Vehicle Department of I2R
(http://www.i2r.a-star.edu.sg/autonomousvehicle/) has developed a
autonomous vehicle with the capabilities in terms of
Localization/Perception/Navigation/Middleware/Drive-by-wire technologies.

Recently, with all these technologies successfully enabled on I2R's
autonomous vehicle, the vehicle has been demonstrated to the Prime Minister
of Singapore, Mr. Lee Hsien Loong, and two more ministers, Mr. S Iswaran
and Dr. Vivian Balskrishnan and received their appraisals and highly
positive comments, as seen in these links,
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkCzLLY2FQc  and

In order to cope with many industrial application requirements, I2R is now
recruiting talent for 1 immediate position in the area of Robotic
localization worldwide.
