Job Description


Samsung Semiconductor, Inc.

Engineering - Hardware • Pasadena, California


Samsung Advanced Institute of Technology (SAIT) Automotive Electronics group extensively uses cutting edge deep learning techniques in image processing for accurate object detection, and lane detection as well as localization through scene segmentations.

In addition to these new perception techniques, other research activities are underway for behavior and path planning and vehicle control for autonomous driving as well as developing new types of sensors such as high performance radars with higher resolution for better scene understanding.

Our Automotive Electronics Group (AEG) has an opportunity for an Embedded System Architect and Technical leader

AEG: "Sensing the environment and navigating without human input"

Position Summary:

Develop perception and sensor fusion algorithms using various sensors for object detection and localization.

Create, develop, invent / patent, validate and integrate perception (sensor fusion, sensor processing, localization and object detection) architecture and algorithms for autonomous driving.

About you:
