We invite applications for a PhD scholarship on Spatial "AI for Vehicle 
Perception in Dynamic Environments" at the I3S-CNRS/UNS laboratory and 
RENAULT Software Labs in Sophia-Antipolis, France.

Next generation Autonomous Driving systems will face the technical 
challenge of using a wide variety and number of sensors (Camera, Radar, 
Lidar, Ultrasonic) to discern the surrounding environment. One of the 
most critical aspects addressed in both autonomous driving and robotics 
is environment perception, since it consists of the ability to 
understand the surroundings of the vehicle to estimate risks and make 
decisions on future movements. In recent years, Spatial Artificial 
Intelligence based on machine learning is at the heart of recent 
advances in spatio-temporal perception allowing an end-to-end 
convolutional approach to simultaneously perform perception tasks such 
as obstacle detection, tracking and prediction. The core subject of this 
PhD is to study and develop innovative concepts, algorithms and methods 
to enhance situational awareness of autonomous systems in dynamic 
environments using spatial AI. The objective will be to design an 
end-to-end approach.
