Software Engineer (Ground Truth Framework)

Your tasks

In the Budapest Artificial Intelligence Development Center of Continental, Autonomous Mobility, we create next generation automotive software solutions which make automated driving safe and affordable. We work towards Vision Zero, a goal to eliminate fatal accidents happening every day on the world’s roads. We are looking for creative minds who are passionate to shape the future of automated driving by delivering world-class perception and fusion systems.

Our teams develop software solutions for automated parking and safety systems, processing various automotive sensor data and providing a robust, scalable output to driving function modules.

Your Task

As a member of the ground truth framework agile team in the automated parking development value chain, you will be working on bringing up a system for ground truth data collection and processing for perception components within the Agile Release Train. You will be responsible for:

  • Setting up a new development pipeline for reference data collection and processing for SW component KPI metrics
  • Developing a SW component for reference sensor data processing
  • Developing new perception algorithms for (semi-)automatic labeling of sensor data, e.g., lidar, radar, camera images
  • SW integration of reference data collection sensor arrays on test vehicles in close cooperation with our local vehicle integration team
  • Supporting developers in KPI metrics definitions for automated parking SW components, and providing templates for regression testing
  • Aligning with internal stakeholders on all components of the value chain (sensors, perception, environmental modelling, driving functions, enablers)
  • Collaborating and work in an agile team environment.
