Meet the team:

Argo’s Autonomous Vehicles (AVs) are cutting edge, but even so, they encounter situations where human assistance may be required. The Remote Guidance Autonomy team is part of the Motion Planning team. The Remote Guidance Autonomy team creates software so that the AV can identify these situations, stop safely, and request assistance from a human operator at a remote station. The Remote Guidance Autonomy team also gives the AV the ability to respond to guidance from the remote operator to allow it to continue on its way.

What you’ll do: 

  • Design and implement software to determine when to request remote guidance. Iterate on design using a data-driven approach with feedback from Argo’s fleet of test vehicles
  • Design behaviors that allow the AV’s motion planning system to respond to remote guidance, prioritizing safety and successful trip completion
  • Communicate designs to teammates and other stakeholders through design documents and presentations
  • Develop C++ software to implement remote guidance functions
  • Work with the Remote Guidance Platform team, who own the Remote Guidance station UX, to integrate remote guidance requests and autonomy behaviors into the remote guidance system
  • Work with test engineers, vehicle operators, and remote guidance operators to validate the safety, efficacy, and performance of     the remote guidance system
  • Use Argo’s data analytics and log review tooling to analyze the performance of the remote guidance system and determine ways to further improve it

What you'll need to succeed:

  • Degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics or a related field 
  • 5+ years of experience in software development
  • Strong C++ programming skills
  • Experience working on large software projects, requiring the use of version control and collaboration tools
