Work description

We develop advanced algorithms such as head- and eye-tracking, attentiveness and drowsiness, face identification and other interior sensing algorithms. We solve these challenging problems by utilizing state-of-the-art algorithms in the fields of image processing, machine learning / AI, mathematics and accelerated computing. You will be part of a team focused on optimizing the execution time of these algorithms.

Our software must support many different hardware platforms, CPU architectures (x86-64, ARMv7, ARMv8, C6x DSP etc.), accelerators/vectorization units (NEON, ASIMD, SSE, various NPUs, GPUs etc.) as well as many operating systems (Linux, QNX, Integrity, SYS/BIOS). The faster we can make our software run on these platforms the more new and exciting algorithms we can use while still satisfying our real-time requirements.
