One key technology for further pushing the boundaries of advanced driver assistance systems and autonomous driving is machine learning/artificial intelligence (AI). We are searching for talented students who bring in new ideas and help to develop our next generation of AI algorithms.
We are developing computer vision algorithms for interior sensing/cabin monitoring which are able to determine the seat occupancy of all seats (empty, occupied by person, occupied by child seat etc.) or the seat belt status (seat belt fastened/not fastened, proper/improper routing) in real-time based on video images. We want to improve these algorithms, add more features and make them so reliable that they can go into series production.
If you are looking for an interesting topic for your master’s thesis and want it to be close to the industry and real-world applications, please get in touch! We also offer PhD positions subsequent to a successful master’s thesis.
Your Tasks and Potential Topics for a Master Thesis
In general: Support us in topics related to computer vision and machine learning/artificial intelligence, i.e. algorithm development, data preparation and processing in Python, neural network training, deployment of neural networks for real-time execution, visualization of results, generation of performance statistics etc.
Example topic 1: Estimate the size of driver/co-driver, detect if people are out of position (e.g. leaning forward/backward) and detect if the arms/hands are likely occluding the seat belt.
Example topic 2: Detect if child is sitting directly on the car seat or on a child seat.
Example topic 3: Detect if the camera’s view on driver/passenger seat is blocked, e.g. by a hand or an object
