Postdoc Position in Visual AutoML for Autonomous Driving (3 years)

The Faculty of Science, University of Amsterdam (UvA) in the Netherlands is inviting Postdoc Position in Visual AutoML for Autonomous Driving (3 years).

Safety is the up-most important concern in autonomous driving. Existing perception algorithms focus on the semantics of the environment, e.g., identifying the existence and location of a pedestrian. However, prediction of the intention of the pedestrians is less exploited, e.g., whether the pedestrian is going to cross the road, or change the route; whether the pedestrian notices coming traffic and intended to give way.

This project aims to develop a systematic solution for the prediction of pedestrians’ intentions in typical driving scenes. More specifically, we take the perspective of an autonomous driving car and intent to predict the intention of the pedestrians in the scene. Especially, they focus on those intentions which are essential for safety.

Duration: 12 years.

Starting Date: June, 2023
