Position: Research Associate in Automotive Systems Modelling for Autonomy
Institution: Imperial College London
Department: Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering
Location: London, United Kingdom
Duties: You will contribute to the development of automotive systems simulation models (with emphasis on sensor representations and communication architectures), and vehicle control systems for autonomous vehicles. These will be used to develop digital representation of car behaviours, to be integrated in a novel autonomous vehicle simulation platform. Furthermore, you will be contributing to ongoing research in the area of Autonomous Vehicle Operations spanning both the Electrical & Electronic Engineering and Civil & Environmental Departments, encompassing the aspects of mobility service design using autonomous vehicles (taxi-bots), systems development and impact assessment
Requirements: You will hold a PhD (or equivalent) in Automotive, Mechanical, Aeronautical, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science or Mathematics. You will have: Previous experience in one or more of sensor modelling, automotive system architectures, machine learning and signal processing. Programming skills in one or more of C#/C++/Python, with a demonstrable record of experience in implementing substantial algorithms. Strong interest in designing, implementing and evaluating autonomous vehicle simulation platforms. Practical experience within a research environment and/or publication in relevant refereed journals and conferences
