Responsibilities:

  • Improve the self-driving car prediction and motion planning onboard algorithms with cutting-edge ML approaches (deep learning, reinforcement learning, imitation learning, decision trees, etc).
  • Land machine learning approaches on the vehicle efficiently and effectively in real world driving environment
  • Build offboard data pipelines to evaluate self-driving car behavior/trajectory. 
  • Gracefully handling many complex situations involving social aspects (merging, negotiating narrow roads, etc), while dealing with noisy, uncertain, and incomplete information.

Qualifications:

  • MS/PHD in Computer Science, Robotics, Mechanical Engineering, statistics, similar technical field of study, or equivalent practical experience
  • Ability to collaborate within and across teams
  • Strong experience programming in C++ with robust and efficient code

Preferred:

  • Solid understanding of linear algebra and planning/control systems/theories
  • Experience with applying Machine Learning and deploying Machine Learning models to solve motion planning or related robotics problems

 

About the Company:
 
Didi Chuxing (“DiDi”) is the world’s leading mobile transportation platform. We’re committed to working with communities and partners to solve the world’s transportation, environmental, and employment challenges by using big data-driven deep-learning algorithms that optimize resource allocation.
 
Didi Chuxing’s Autonomous-Driving team was established in 2016 and has grown to a comprehensive research and development organization covering HD mapping, perception, behavior prediction, planning and control, infrastructure and simulation, labeling, hardware, mechanical, problem diagnosis, vehicle modifications, connected car, and security, among others. We’re developing and testing self-driving vehicles in China and the United States.
 
In August 2019, DiDi upgraded its autonomous driving unit to an independent company to focus on R&D, product application, and business development related to self-driving technologies. The new company will integrate the resources and technology of DiDi’s platform, continue to increase investment in R&D, and deepen collaboration with auto industry partners.
