Head Computer Vision Systems

Singapore

Role

You will join us as a core team member and lead the development of precision landing and detect & avoid capabilities on large-scale drones using advanced vision systems. This is multifaceted and you are expected to build, manage and develop a team as we progress.

You will work closely with Autopilot software, Embedded Software/Hardware and Design teams to build a robust vision/LiDAR ecosystem (on-board the drone). Extensive SIL and HIL simulations must be performed before field testing. The target is to build an aviation-standard single-subsystem which can enable VISLAM (for vision-based navigation), detect and avoid, multi-sensor based landing and smart fail-safes. Development should follow aviation certification standards and you shall establish processes with other teams to ensure that these standards are met.

Your profile

  • Masters in Electronics, Computer Science, Aerospace or similar discipline(s). Exceptional individuals with lower academic qualifications may be considered

  • More than 3 years experience working on Vision systems/LiDAR, Image Processing/SLAM and multi-sensor fusion

  • Strong background in sensing, localization, behavior, and path-planning for probabilistic robotics (including computer vision, vision-based localization and mapping, robot perception, robot behavior, and autonomous vehicle development)

  • Programming experience in C++, Python, ROS, Linux

  • Know-how of communication protocols such as MAVLINK, RTPS/DDS is a plus

  • Experience in entire product development lifecycles

  • Ability to prioritise what matters and meet deadlines

  • You preach and put into practice the importance of maintainability, relentless testing and enjoy implementing best practices
