Specifically,
Computer Vision (Job Number: P15INT-01)
Computer Vision (CV) team is looking for interns to work on scene understanding, self-localization and large-scale multi-sensor datasets. Projects for summer interns include object detection, tracking, path prediction, application of deep learning to these problems, point-cloud analysis, self-localization with sensor fusion, visual SLAM/odometry and semi-automatic sensor data annotation.
Human Machine Interface (Job Number: P15INT-02)
Human Machine Interface (HMI) team is looking for interns to work on novel driver vehicle interfaces. Interns will collaborate with the researchers to design experiments, conduct data collection and explore research topics such as driver status monitoring, intention understanding and augmented reality interface design.
System Integration and Control (Job Number: P15INT-03)
System Integration and Control team focuses on autonomous systems that navigate safely around traffic participants. Internship projects include path planning, vehicle dynamics, collision risk assessment and avoidance, reactive behavior, sequential decision making, reinforcement learning and application of deep learning to these topics.
- Ph.D. student in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Mathematics or a related field.
- Strong and broad knowledge in Computer Vision, , Machine Learning, Robotics, Vehicle Dynamics and/or Signal Processing.
- Strong problem solving skills.
- Excellent programming skills in C++, Python or Matlab.
HRI-US internship program is designed to give students hands-on experience in developing new research ideas. Each intern works with HRI-US researchers and is expected to generate prototypes and scientific publications as a result of the internship.
Located in the Bay Area, HRI-US pays interns competitive salaries and provides for a comfortable yet competitive research environment. Interns from outside of the local area are eligible for relocation stipend. The time frame for these positions may be adjusted to accommodate the intern's academic schedule.
Application Instructions: To apply for one of the positions, please send a cover letter and your CV to intern_HRI@hra.com with the subject line clearly indicating the job number you are applying for. Name your attachment as "FirstName.LastName.UniversityName.cv.pdf".
The candidates must have the legal right to work in the U.S.A.
