One of Apple's R&D groups is currently seeking a senior perception sensor modeling, simulation and analysis engineer. This engineer will develop parametric representations, visualizations and data driven analysis to support sensor requirements definition and perception use case validation. Candidate will be exposed to a of a wide variety of sensor types and unique configurations. Typical work products include software models representing sensors, simulation & scenario frameworks punctuated with written and verbal presentations of analysis/results.

Does working on autonomous technology excite you? Innovation is in your hands! We are ready to help you help us grow.

Key Qualifications

  • Skilled in the of development, theory, and design of sensor modeling and simulation techniques
  • Fundamental understanding of optical modeling, ray tracing, and geometric evaluation of sensor data products
  • Past experience building parametric evaluation frameworks for sensitivity studies (eg. Monte Carlo), and analyzing the resulting large data sets
  • Experience working with internal customers to define key performance indicators and metric evaluation methods for sensing systems
  • Intimate knowledge of sensor system engineering process (Use Cases, Requirements, V&V)
  • Experience with 3d trajectory generation (equations of motion) and applicability to depth sensors
  • Experience with photorealistic sensor rendering software
  • Extensive experience in scalable scientific computing (Matlab & Python)

Description

In this role you will partner with other sensor and autonomy algorithm subject matter experts to create a scalable sensor evaluation system. Results will have critical impact and represent major financial investments in sensor technology. You will:
Maintain a strong relationship with internal customers, hardware/software teams, and external vendors
Create representative models used to analyze performance for sensor fusion, perception and machine learning use cases
Create characterization plans (for other teams) to help populate and validate modeling assumptions
Identify performance bounding use cases, aggressors and environments
Perform simulation and analysis to support use cases and requirements/specs

Education & Experience

B.S. in Engineering + minimum of 10 years of industry experience
M.S. in Engineering + minimum of 5 years of industry experience

Additional Requirements

  • Nice to Have:
  • Experience with depth sensors (LiDAR, Radar, Ultrasonics) and cameras
  • Understanding of Computer Vision and State Estimation fundamentals
  • Experience implementing and releasing software/algorithms
  • Familiarity and experience with perception algorithms (detection, classification, tracking, etc...)
  • Proficiency in C++ and source control (eg. GIT)
  • Apple's most important resource, our soul, is our people. Apple benefits help further the well-being of our employees and their families in significant ways. No matter where you work at Apple, you can take advantage of our health and wellness resources and time-away programmes.
