1.1 About You

  • Expertise in Robotic Operating System (ROS), ROS1 & ROS2
  •  Expertise in various sensors, navigation, control system, and robot programming.
  •  Expertise in sensor integration, sensor data acquisition, sensor data synchronisation and sensor data processing for modular integration.
  • Expertise in embedding AV functionalities in a modular architecture.
  • Not necessary but Knowledge of AV functionalities like localisation, mapping, planning, control and actuation is preferable.
  • Knowledge of software design capabilities (module, sub-system, and small systems) and documentation skills.
  •  Programming languages – Python/C++, preferable if Proficient in Python
  • OS for the embedded systems would be advantageous
  •  Knowledge and experience in RTOS and real time system implementation preferable
  • Knowledge in specific libraries for image processing, encryption, OpenCV, OpenSSL, PCL, would be preferred.
