Autonomous driving (AD) is an active field of research for all major car manufacturers. To drive by themselves, cars are equipped with various type of sensors that try to "see" the world around them. The huge amount of data streaming from these sensors needs to be analyzed and interpreted like a human in real-time. For example:
To accomplish this, we need smart and efficient algorithms that run either in the car itself (edge computing) or on a more powerful server in the cloud (cloud computing). However, since the amount of data being generated is too large to be handled completely in the car, we need to get some of that data to the cloud, where we have more computational resources. Unfortunately, even with the upcoming 5G technology, the amount of sensor data being generated is too large and requires compression. That's where Teraki comes in ...
Teraki is the leader in compression and edge-based data analytics for the three primary types of data used in AD:
We are looking for a Data Science Intern in the culturally-diverse Berlin-based office, where English is the working language. The internship is a full time job with a contract of six months. You will be working on the point cloud research team, developing real-time point cloud processing algorithms and software, such as data segmentation (object detection and labelling). As part of the recruitment process, please expect a C++/CMake take-home test related to point clouds.
The position we offer gives you a chance to:
