|Company/Institution: HERE a world-wide leading map and navigation company |
|Location: Berkeley, California|
|Department: Maps and Localization Group|
The HERE Reality Capture & Processing (RCP) team in downtown Berkeley is expanding!
The RCP group designs and builds hardware and software for capturing, processing, and extracting information from numerous data sources such as: imagery and 3D Lidar from mobile mapping systems, aerial and satellite imagery, and dense GPS probe data from smartphones and vehicles. These rich datasets are used to power next-gen 3D consumer maps, navigation and assisted driving systems, and more. HERE Maps, a division of Nokia, provides detailed road and navigation data for nearly 100 countries, and can be found in four out of five vehicle in-dash navigation systems. Licensees of HERE’s platform include Microsoft, Yahoo, Amazon, and Baidu.
Within RCP, the Localization team develops algorithms to accurately position the mapping vehicle and features in the environment. This requires implementing the latest computer vision and machine learning algorithms coupled with other sensors. We are seeking passionate and experienced engineers to join a talented team of algorithm experts and software engineers. Example work this team does includes: Camera and lidar calibration, image feature detection and recognition, structure from motion, SLAM and sensor fusion.
