Head of Computer Vision Systems
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.
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
