Research

 

• Conduct research on advanced artificial intelligence techniques for the accurate detection, classification, and tracking of VRUs using video and point cloud data.

 

• Develop innovative sensor calibration and fusion techniques to improve the precision and reliability of class perception mechanisms for VRUs.

 

• Perform real-time motion analysis, conflict assessment, and risk assessment based on the status and predicted trajectory of VRUs.

 

• Integrate Graph Neural Network (GNN) architectures for modeling relational dependencies among VRUs and improving trajectory prediction accuracy.

 

Development

 

• Collaborate with interdisciplinary teams to design and implement algorithms and models for VRU detection and safety assessment.

 

• Utilize deep learning methodologies for video and point cloud object recognition and detection.

 

• Implement and optimize GNN architectures for dynamic graph modeling and trajectory prediction.

 

Qualifications

 

• Ph.D. or equivalent experience in computer science, engineering, or related field.

 

• Strong publication record demonstrating expertise in deep learning techniques related to video and point cloud object recognition/detection.

 

• Familiarity with main deep learning packages such as TensorFlow, PyTorch, or Keras.

 

• Proficiency in programming languages, particularly Python

 

• Familiarity with Graph Neural Networks (GNNs).

 

• Experience with sensor calibration, fusion techniques, and real-time motion analysis preferred.

 

• Ability to work collaboratively in interdisciplinary teams.

 

• Excellent analytical and problem-solving skills.
