The Fraunhofer Application Center “Connected Mobility and Infrastructure” focuses on current and
future topics of automated and cooperative driving. Diverse competences in the fields of sensor technology,
communication and artificial intelligence are combined, fostering synergies with the local industry and
aiming for close cooperation with the city of Ingolstadt and its partners. With research on urban air
mobility, the application center is opening up further fields of technology in the areas of autonomous
systems, digitization in traffic, and vehicle and traffic safety.

For our 5GoIng project we are looking for excellent students who would like to write their thesis or
complete an internship in the field of sensor data fusion and artificial intelligence. The “Erste Meile” test
bed, which is equipped with the latest sensors (camera and LiDAR sensors), is available for the work.

What you will do

– development of algorithms for 3D multi-object tracking based on heterogeneous sensor data fusion
(classical and/or AI-based approaches)
– creation of a digital twin of the test bed “Erste Meile” in the simulation environment CARLA
– implementation of the tracking framework within the simulation environment
– simulative generation of a data set for training AI algorithms
– validation of the developed algorithms and execution of tests on the test bed “Erste Meile”

What you bring to the table

– student in Computer or Data Science, Mechanical Engineering, Mathematics, Physics, Electrical and Information Engineering, or a related field
– very good programming skills in Python
– interest in topics of artificial intelligence
– experience with frameworks such as ROS and PyTorch/TensorFlow
– structured, self-dependent and result-oriented way of working
– ambition, creativity and commitment in the daily work routine
– high motivation and ability to work in a team

What you can expect

– challenging tasks in cutting-edge and application-relevant subject areas
