Autonomous Vehicle Intern, Planning and Control (Research): Data Driven Trajectory Scoring
Singapore, Central, Singapore
We are seeking a highly motivated Research Intern (Planning and Control) to improve Motional’s autonomous vehicle systems via Data-Driven and Machine Learning methods. You will work with a team of talented engineers to work towards Motional’s safe and driverless future.
If you are a high achieving robotics student (MS/PhD track) who is looking to change the world through software, this is the place for you. Please include a cover letter to let us know when you are looking to intern with us.
Please note that it will be in our Singapore office, and we would expect a minimum 4 months internship period.
What You'll Be Doing
Explore data-driven and Machine Learning methods to augment and improve the metric cost structure used for Trajectory Scoring, allowing more sophisticated/informative trajectory selection between different trajectories.
Utilise driving behavior data from human driving data and/or user survey results to optimize/learn an improved cost structure based on formalized road rule, comfort, and performance metrics.
Bring up the learnt cost structure as a general performance metric for the car.
Potential metrics contribution to nuPlan (planning benchmarking tool) as a measure for overall aggregate score.
What We're Looking For
Pursuing or completed and Undergraduate, Master’s, or PhD program in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Robotics, Applied Mathematics, or a related field
Some experience and knowledge in application of machine learning and basic optimization concepts
Some hands-on experience with autonomous robotics systems and ability to analyse and debug planning issues
Reasonable fluency in Python or C++
Some experience with linux systems
Motional is making driverless vehicles a safe, reliable, and accessible reality.
Our team is commercializing a world-class driverless system. The Motional team is behind some of the industry’s largest leaps forward in the last decade, including the first fully-autonomous cross-country drive in the U.S, the launch of the world’s first robotaxi pilot, and operation of the world’s most-established public robotaxi fleet. Strategically formed by Hyundai Motor Groupand Aptiv, Motional is fundamentally changing how people move through their lives.
