AI Engineer Environment Perception - Vehicle Automation
Do you want to participate in the journey towards realizing automated commercial vehicles? We need people that can develop the AI solutions to power those vehicles!
The Volvo Group is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of commercial vehicles like trucks, buses, construction equipment, and also marine and industrial engines, under the leading brands Volvo, Renault Trucks, Mack, UD Trucks, Eicher, SDLG, Volvo Penta, etc.
At the forefront of Research and Development in the automotive industry, Volvo Group Truck Technology (GTT) offers you the opportunity to become a part of the team that is in charge of developing AI solutions needed to create sensor-based perception components. This team belongs to the Vehicle Automation department which has the responsibility to lead the development of Vehicle Automation and Active Safety systems for the full life-cycle enabling tomorrow’s trucks. Vehicle Automation is part of Vehicle Engineering, responsible for developing vehicle components and systems for the different brands within the Volvo Group. The work will be in close cooperation with other parties in the GTT organization, as well as world class industrial players and academia.
We are currently looking for a senior AI Engineer to join our group. The group you will be part of is responsible for the signal processing of raw sensor data and sensor fusion, as well as the software that interprets the environment around the vehicle. This translates to working with development of software and algorithms, and the integration of such software.
Your main task will be to perform AI engineering related to low and high volume products. Low volume products are typically done to test and verify new functionality in customer setting, with faster turnaround times and shorter development cycles. High volume products typically involve mass market adaptation of technology into all AB Volvo’s vehicle brands.
You will perform in-house development of AI Solutions, where you will be responsible for deliveries throughout the whole chain including data curation, model design, training, verification, integration and deployment. The perception stack that you will deploy solutions into contains everything from object detection to localization and free space detection. We run the perception stack on top notch prototype and product versions of embedded hardware. Your work will involve sensor signal processing, sensor fusion, and filtering using data from sensors such as radars, cameras and LiDARs. You will also work with third party software analysis, integration, and benchmarking.
We typically adapt state-of-the-art algorithms based on Deep Learning towards our specific needs in trucks. This is done in an agile environment. Experience in version handling, unit testing, continuous integration, etc, are thus an advantage.
The scope for the group’s responsibility in your domain is the complete life span of the related components, from concept studies, proof of concept, adopting products to our requirements, as well as maintenance of delivered components. Hence, we are working with, and deploying to, both AD and ADAS systems. We are also involved in research projects together with both Swedish and international Universities and research institutes.
