We are Austria’s largest Research and Technology Organisation and an international player in the research areas that we cover. This makes us a leading development partner for industry and a top employer in the scientific community. Our Center for Vision, Automation and Control in Vienna invites applications for a:
Master Thesis „Sensor Fusion and Consistency Preservation with absolute Pose-Sources”
- Autonomous robots are equipped with sensors to obtain their position
- To increase robustness, different modalities are used (e.g. GPS, LiDAR, Camera)
- Sensors (e.g. GPS) and some localization algorithms (e.g. visual localization) work in their own (absolute) independent reference system
- Keeping these coordinate systems consistent and up-to-date is a major prerequisite for sensor fusion
- One possible scenario is the usage of a low-cost GPS with (multiple) additional visual localization solutions to enhance overall positioning accuracy
- Mixed indoor / outdoor operation (temporary loss of GPS)
- Seamless transitions between different sensor setups and operational availabilities
- One task of this project is to evaluate state-of-the art sensor fusion concepts with special focus on absolute pose-sources
- Design and implementation of sensor fusion concepts
- Evaluation of resulting positioning accuracies and increase in system robustness for defined scenarios
Your qualifications as an Ingenious Partner*:
- Enrolled as a master student in computer science, software engineering, information and computer engineering, mathematics or similar
- Background knowledge and interest in autonomous systems and sensor fusion
- Strong self-motivation and curiosity for solving challenging robotic problems
- Good knowledge and object-oriented programming experience in C++ / Python and ROS
What to expect:
At least € 719,51 gross for 20 hours/week based on the collective agreement (Forschungs‐KV). The actual salary will be determined individually, based on your qualifications and experience. There will be additional company benefits! As a research institution, we are familiar with the supervision and execution of master theses and we are looking forward to accompanying you accordingly.
At AIT, the promotion of women is important to us - that's why we are especially looking forward to applications from female students!
