Internship: Extended Object Tracking for Autonomous Driving

Cambridge, Massachusetts, United States · SP · 1250 expand job description ↓


The Signal Processing (SP) group at MERL is seeking a highly motivated intern to conduct fundamental research in automotive radar-based extended object tracking (EOT) for autonomous driving. Previous experience on radar-based (point and extended) object tracking (extended/unscented Kalman Filtering, interacting multiple model (IMM) tracking, probability hypothesis density (PHD) filtering, etc.), data association, and jointly data association and prediction/filtering (joint probability data association (JPDA), multi-hypothesis tracking (MHT) is highly preferred. Knowledge about antenna beamforming, target detection, sensor fusion, MIMO radar, waveform modulation (FMCW and PMCW) is a plus. Familiarity with commercial automotive radar platforms is an asset. The intern will collaborate with a small group of MERL researchers to develop novel algorithms, conduct field measurements, and prepare results for patents and publication. Senior Ph.D. students with research focuses on signal processing, machine learning, optimization, applied mathematics, or related areas are encouraged to apply. The expected duration of the internship is 3 months with flexible start date.

Research Areas: Computational Sensing, Machine Learning, Signal Processing
