Tusimple is the self-driving technology company with a mission to bring automation to the trucking industry. Planning plays a critical role in the mission. At Tusimple, the planning team is responsible for generating optimized trajectories for our self-driving truck. The planning module includes important components such as lane change decision, motion planning and trajectory ranking.
Example projects we are working on include:
Proactive lane change algorithms to make our lane change natural, smooth and safe
Longitudinal and Lateral joint optimization to handle sudden cut-in and complicated merge scenarios
Perception and prediction uncertainty handling in motion planning
Learning based planning algorithms (both deep learning and reinforcement learning)
What You'll Do:
Deliver high-quality and reliable code for planning modules on autonomous driving trucks
Develop the cutting edge stochastic optimization algorithms in decision making
Gain experience in convex optimization algorithms for motion planning
Build advanced models for machine learning based planning algorithms
Collaborate with other engineers to conduct system integration and tests.
What You'll Bring:
Masters in Computer Science, Robotics, Mechanical Engineering, Math/statistics or other related fields.
Product-quality code in C++ and/or Python.
Experience in designing and building data pipelines.
1-5+ years of professional experience working with autonomous vehicles.
PhD in Computer Science, Robotics, Mechanical Engineering, Math/statistics or other related fields.
Knowledge and experience in convex optimization, non-linear optimization, stochastic optimization, Markov decision process
Knowledge and experience in advanced learning algorithms include deep learning, reinforcement learning, inverse reinforcement learning, GAN
