Vacancy Computer Vision - Stereo/SLAM/3D Engineer

Description

Navinfo is the largest Digital Map Provider in China and third largest in the world.
As part of the Navinfo family our team at Navinfo Europe supports our business units to create maps for autonomous driving as well as classic navigation maps. Our mission is to deliver innovative technology to further increase the degree of process automation.
Our core competence is the extraction of map related features from images by intense use of Deep Learning and Computer Vision. Part of our mission is to evaluate latest technology for use in map automation and support business units with the integration of this technology into a production environment.
Your responsibility is the design, implementation and maintenance of software related to localisation, mapping and 3D reconstruction. This includes software for disparity map calculations, bundle adjustments, surface reconstructions and related tools, but also working with various sensors such as GPS, IMU, LiDAR and cameras that are part of a mobile mapping system.
You will join our multi-cultural team of Deep Learning/Computer Vision engineers within our European Advanced Research Lab.

While most of the team is located in our Eindhoven office, our team is partially distributed across Europe. Our processes support remote work, yet our preference is to extend our team in Eindhoven. Keeping our team’s motivation on highest level is a core concern to us. Therefore we allow a certain degree of individual flexibility to support a sustainable work/life balance.

You will work with up to date technologies in a team of highly skilled professionals. Being a team player with excellent communication skills is a key requirement for us. As English is our working language your level should be B2 or higher.

As mobile mapping is a highly dynamic field we continuously try to follow the latest technology developments. Our aim is to pick up latest technology trends as well as to evaluate them for our mission.

As our tools are used in an industry production process our software is currently mainly developed in C++ (11). We support Linux on PC and NVIDIA Jetson embedded platforms.

We target multiple use cases from prototyping a data collection vehicle to a real-time scenario for ADAS/autonomous driving applications.
See our YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBTCXlxVBcC6c5RArXfgTwA to get an impression how the collected data can be used.

 

Core tasks:

• Help design a mobile mapping platform. This includes hardware selection and interfacing.
• Design of SLAM based solutions using bundle adjustment or visual odometry related techniques.
• Design dense point and surface reconstruction based solutions for our stereo based mobile mapping system.
• Follow technology trends in Computer Vision/Mobile Mapping domain
• Evaluate latest technology for use in the map automation process
• Develop prototypes that demonstrate the potential for map automation
• Support our partnering business units with the integration of our prototypes into a production environment
• Develop tools to improve our mapping/localisation related processes
• Maintain clear and effective communication within the team and other teams as necessary
