Title: Robotics Vision Researcher ATAS - 931

JobID: 931

Location: Smyrna, GA

Description: Robotics Vision Researcher ATAS-931

The Georgia Tech Research Institute's Robotics and Autonomous Systems Division is looking for candidates experienced with robotics vision and perception. Join our growing robotics division and tackle responsibilities that may include development of real-time perception algorithms for robotics applications, including visual odometry/SLAM, object detection and tracking, 3D/point cloud processing for navigation and obstacle avoidance, and fusion of multiple sensors for these tasks.

This opportunity is within the Aerospace, Transportation and Advanced Systems Lab ( ATAS ). ATAS conducts research for government and industry customers in aerodynamics, radar and weapons systems, food processing technology, unmanned systems and modeling of social systems.


The position will involve research, development of algorithms, fast prototyping, programming, generation of research reports, publications, proposals, and briefs to customers, requiring excellent written and verbal communication skills.


- US Citizenship AND/ OR the ability to get a security clearance

- MS or PhD in computer science, robotics, Electrical Computer Engineer, or related fields specializing in perception for robotics.

- have extensive, demonstrated C/C++ programming skills, and have a strong mathematical foundation and problem-solving skills.

- hands-on experience with state-of-the-art algorithms on robotic systems

- Experience with fast prototyping in MATLAB and/or python as well as experience in deploying these algorithms for real-time operation on a robot in real world environments is a plus.

- Proven research experience in at least ONE of these areas is desirable:

*Visual odometry and SLAM,

*Object detection & tracking in images or point clouds,

*Multi-sensor fusion, and

*Machine learning for robotic perception.
