Job Description

We are looking for highly motivated people to build the road ahead and invent solutions to challenges never met before. Creativity and perseverance is your attitude? We are looking for you.

  • Duration: 6 months (starting from March 2021)
  • Location: Toulouse, France
  • Department: R&D - Navigation
  • Internship subject: Implement spline trajectory generation and develop corresponding testing tool
  • Internship tutor: Clément Pardon, R&D Engineer

The goal of this internship is to implement a new trajectory generation algorithm. To do so, you will have two main tasks, both related to trajectory generation for the autonomous vehicle:

  • You will use an existing spline computation library to apply it to a specific trajectory generation problem. You will have to choose the best type of spline and the best parameters to fit the objectives in term of computation time and of trajectory acceptability.
  • You will also develop a testing tool that will help you to visualise generated trajectories and relevant KPIs. This tool will not be limited to spline trajectory testing, but will also allow to compare the results of the spline trajectory generation with other trajectory generation algorithms (that are already used in current vehicles). The tool will come with an interface which will make it possible to rapidly try different configurations and make a comparison between results.

The two tasks will be done in parallel during the internship. They are complementary and will be done in an iterative way :

  • The spline generation will help to define the needs for the tools
  • The results given by the tool will help to improve the trajectory generation

Preferred Experience

There is no typical profile at EasyMile, we all come from different backgrounds and that is what makes us strong! Don't hesitate to apply if you are motivated and interested by innovative transportation and technologies.

We are looking for:

  • Final year internship
  • C++
  • Python
  • Experience with an UI framework, such as Qt, is a plus
  • Prior understanding of spline generation methods is a plus

Recruitment Process

  • 30 minutes call with a recruitment officer
  • 30 minutes call with the tutor
  • One hour interview with the tutor and a recruitment officer

All our offers are open to people with disabilities
