The project summary
Do you live and breathe AI, deep learning, and computer vision? Are you a kick-ass software engineer with a strong academic background? At TomTom, we are doing world-class research and development to innovate our map technology for driverless cars.
We are in a unique position to advance and to impact the future of autonomous driving, using sensor input from various sources such as LiDAR and cameras to define and build a detailed, high-quality map –essential for precise localisation and navigation of driverless vehicles. Approaches to fully automate and scale this process are key in our research strategy.
Our mapping algorithms and models are from the cutting edge of machine learning, helped by some of the largest labelled maps-related databases in the world. We make use of the latest advancements in deep learning, such as generative adversarial networks and active learning techniques, to solve both supervised and unsupervised learning problems. The latest SLAM and visual odometry algorithms help us to align separate data sources, and to represent them in a common coordinate frame. In addition to this, we enable our models and algorithms to run efficiently on embedded platforms installed in a car.
This vacancy is part of project: a - a global recruitment campaign that calls for the world’s top tech talent to come to Amsterdam to define what’s next _.
