Ph.D. Position on Efficient Neuromorphic Signal Processing for Autonomous Driving

Neuromorphic processors that are optimized for the simulation of spiking neural networks bear huge potential for future highly energy-efficient real-time AI applications. So far, computational models for neuromorphic computing are still in their infancy and have not got beyond simple research prototypes. The goal of this project is to develop the first comprehensive spiking signal processing system for sensor data processing in autonomous vehicles that can be executed on state-of-the-art neuromorphic processors.

Ph.D. Position on Efficient Hardware-Ressource-Planning for AI-Applications in Automotive

The goal of the project “Reconfigurable hardware platform for AI-based sensor signal processing in autonomous driving" (KI-FLEX) is the development of a novel and highly flexible hardware platform including a software framework for KI-based sensor signal processing and fusion in autonomous vehicles. In this project, suitable methods and tools will be developed to ensure the functional safety of the AI algorithms and their interaction in the applica-tion and the planned hardware-software-system even during reconfiguration while driving. Your main task is to design and implement an efficient scheduler for the project. Read more...

Softwareentwickler(in) und Startup Mitgründer(in) für modulare Roboter

We are a small team in the process of founding a robotics company and applying for an EXIST-scholarship. To complete our team, we are looking for a talented software developer or electrical and computer engineer and co-founder. In case of a successful funding, we will offer a full-time position starting mid-2019. The main idea of our company is to enable customers to easily create different robots from a small set of modules instead of buying a new robot each time a task has changed. After assembly, the robot is ready to run instantly by calculating its dynamic properties automatically. More information can be found here.

Ph.D. improved SOC/SOH estimation and smart operation for Li-Ion Battery Systems

In collaboration with our chair, Siemens is looking for a Ph.D. student in the area of battery management systems for electric ferry boats. Details can be found in the pdf-Link. The research would be carried out in Erlangen and Trondheim.
