Ford Motor Company Careers – AV Perception Engineer

Website Ford Motor Company

Job Description:

We are seeking a diligent, detail-driven professional for our position of “Autonomous Vehicle Perception Engineer”. This position entails developing, implementing, and testing perception algorithms for scene understanding using Computer Vision and Machine Learning. The AV needs to understand its 3D environment, to plan a safe path through it, and therefore needs to detect the 3D position of vehicles, pedestrians and other objects around it. Cameras – in monocular, stereoscopic and structured-light configurations and LIDARs will be used for this task. Monocular depth estimation, semantic segmentation, 3D object detection and 6-DoF pose estimation are some of the tasks that will be under the purview of this position.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Develop and implement Multi-Target Tracking and Data Association algorithms using EKFs and Particle Filters.
  • Design, implement, train and test ML algorithms for camera-based depth estimation, semantic segmentation, 3D object detection, classification and 6 DoF object pose-estimation.
  • Develop, implement and utilize specific metrics to quantify the performance of object detection and classification algorithms.
  • Design, implement, train and test ML algorithms for LIDAR based free space detection and 3D object detection.
  • Design, implement, test and maintain production-level software solutions in C++ on an embedded platform

Qualification & Experience:

  • Experience with neural network development in at least two of the following areas: monocular depth estimation, semantic segmentation and 3D object detection/classification using an ML framework like Tensor Flow / Keras / Pytorch.
  • Experience with 3D geometry: particularly multi-camera projective geometry, the fundamental matrix and its solutions.
  • 1+ years experience (co-op/internship/university lab work in conjunction with industry partner acceptable) developing high-quality C/C++ code for a commercial CV/ML application.
  • Experience with multiple sensor systems that utilize a combination of LIDAR and cameras.
  • Experience working in a team-based project from inception to demonstration across multiple disciplines, e.g., hardware design and implementation, data acquisition and analysis, mathematical modeling, algorithm development, application implementation, etc.
  • Bachelors Degree in Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or related field
  • 1+ years experience (co-op/internship/university lab work in conjunction with industry partner acceptable) developing custom software within a large codebase.
  • Experience with neural network development in LIDAR-based 3D object detection using an ML framework like Tensor Flow / Keras / Pytorch.
  • Experience with Linux development using tools for code debugging and profiling.
  • Experience with developing custom software within a large codebase, including proficiency with software version control systems (e.g., git or svn), code reviews, and style guidelines.
