Systems Lab

for intelligent multi-sensor data processing and fusion

SAL is establishing a Connected Autonomous Systems Lab to research revolutionary enabling technologies for this rapidly growing class of embedded systems. Guiding case studies range from self-organizing multi-sensor arrays and robots for industrial applications to autonomous vehicles and multi-purpose drones.

In close cooperation with universities and leading industry & research partners, the lab will investigate intelligent multi-sensor data processing including fusion strategies, distributed reasoning and decision-making for automation and control. The aim is to establish design principles for collectives of ultra-reliable and ultra-scalable autonomous systems. The collaborative approach provides the lab with world-wide leading-edge equipment laying foundations for research excellence on international level.

The Connected Autonomous Systems Lab is looking for research
enthusiasts in the areas of

  • Sensor data processing, multimodal sensor fusion, parameter estimation and selfcalibration
  • Data and task distribution and collaborative perception
  • Distributed decision making and coordination strategies
  • Cyberphysical systems, wireless sensor & actuator networks and robotics
  • Embedded real-time SW design and HW/SW systems engineering (FGPA and micro-controller programming skills welcome)

We hire...

Junior Researchers / PhDs

You hold a Master’s degree and are eager to acquire experience in applying professional practices and practical techniques to resolve scientific issues. You will typically work on a subset of a larger research activity under continuous supervision by senior researchers and a university professor leading to publications and scientific results you present at workshops and conferences.

Scientists / Researchers

You hold a PhD degree or have comparable experience and are fond of developing scientific methods and procedures as well as their application. Daily work includes collaboration with university and industrial research and/or development staff as well as being a sparring partner for and supervising of Junior Researchers. You are used to writing and reviewing (peer) research papers, reports, reviews and summaries. Openness to develop project ideas, concepts and coordinate small and medium-sized projects including preparation of research proposals and funding applications/bids is highly welcome.

Senior / Key Scientists

You are a renowned specialist with advanced disciplinary expertise and broad understanding of related areas, bringing a wealth of experience and personal network to the table. You feel comfortable in adapting to different dialog groups up to executive level in- and outside SAL. You are ready to take thought and/or disciplinary leadership responsibility and (contribute to) shape our organization and the future. Ideally you have a number of high impact publications and/or patents, are involved in natl. and intl. boards (e.g. ECSEL) committees (conference TPC, conference steering committee), and/or standardization bodies.
