The HD map team in HERE is solving the challenging problem of realizing autonomous driving in complex urban area with a set of highly precise and rich features. One major goal of the HD map is to offload as much costly in-car computation as possible to a dynamic map with rich features that support localization and planning.
Aside from detecting and classifying physically observable objects such as paint marking, signs, road edges for localization purpose, the Carlsbad HAD team is looking for software engineers to help building and optimizing the algorithm and tools to create high level abstractions such as lanes, drive path, and topology of the lanes and roads for planning purpose, by inferring those from a rich collection of source data we have. We seek robust algorithm design and implementation that can tolerate imperfection in data, handle complexity in the traffic semantics, and produce the best possible results with a model to communicate uncertainty.
The work to create these planning features is highly impactful given the company’s large network in auto industry and continental coverage of map data. The team is looking for candidates with strong C++ and 3D math (linear algebra) background. Great problem solving skill and ability to do research on cutting edge technology is required. Candidates with computer vision, machine learning, graphics, or robotics background will be a huge plus.
