The Autonomous Vehicle team of Institut VEDECOM is looking for a post-doctorate student to work on a localization system based on traditional infrastructure elements (signs, crossroads, etc.) that are usually found in classical Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
He/she will have the following missions:
- Review the current state of the art regarding localization techniques based on geographic information.
- Propose a drift model for localization algorithms, especially those of VEDECOM.
- Integrate and evaluate the impact of different landmarks (2D, 3D, edges, etc.) on the localization drift.
- Develop a method to evaluate the feasibility of a planned path regarding the available landmarks and the associated detectors.
- Communicate the results in scientific publications.
This post-doctorate will be carried out between Institut VEDECOM and one of its partner.
- PhD in mobile robotics/engineer sciences or MSc with experience in the field.
- Familiar with perception/localization approaches in mobile robotics/autonomous vehicle.
- C/C++ programming
- Contract duration: 18 months
- Location: Versailles, France
Contact: Guillaume Bresson (firstname.lastname@example.org)
