ROBOTICS HARDWARE ENGINEER-AUTONOMOUS DRIVING, Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL), to help lead the hardware development effort in a new research initiative with Toyota. This initiative aims to develop new technologies for autonomous driving and advanced driver assistance systems. The Toyota-CSAIL Joint Research Center is a collaboration between MIT, Toyota, and Stanford University and will focus on developing advanced decision-making algorithms and systems that allow vehicles to perceive and navigate their surroundings safely, enabling autonomous driving and/or a parallel autonomy to augment a human driver. Will be responsible for supporting research and development efforts in autonomous vehicle technologies, and oversee the development of autonomous vehicle testbeds including the drive-by-wire conversion and development of sensor interfaces and control systems. Will also lead both the overall system design as well as the implementation, testing, and maintenance of individual system components; and balance performing independent tasks and making suitable use of available students to ensure that overall program milestones are reached.
REQUIRED: a bachelor's degree (master's or Ph.D. preferred) in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, robotics, or related field; minimum of five years' related experience building electronics, including design and worst case analysis, validation of electronic circuits and components, and electrical prototyping; experience with hardware systems such as RADAR, LIDAR, cameras, GPS, and video sensors; ability to create supporting technical documentation for modules; excellent verbal and written communication and presentation skills; and strong project management and leadership skills. System competence regarding driver assistance systems, networks, and brake systems desired. Embedded, multicore programing experience in C/C++ preferred. Must be able to travel internationally and domestically up to 15% of the time and to work evenings, nights, and weekends in order to attend relevant meetings and teleconferences. Job #14260
