Research Engineer Computer Vision & Machine Learning

From vision systems design over machine learning to deep learning, you make vision systems smarter using innovative computer vision techniques.

For a variety of real industry cases, we want to increase the intelligence and the efficiency of camera/product/production systems, for instance: working with autonomous vehicles and self-guided robot applications, product quality inspection, sensor fusion…

You will:

  • Work together in a research team with experts in control, sensing and mechanical design;
  • Take the lead in adding vision capabilities to multidisciplinary mechatronic systems;
  • With your background in computer vision and image processing algorithms, you will:
    • Study, design and implement computer vision algorithms (Python, C++, Matlab);
    • Engineer feature extraction methods and decision systems, both rule- and machine learning based;
    • Train and deploy classifiers and strengthen the system with deep learning algorithms;
    • Use leading computer vision libraries (OpenCV, dlib, ImageJ/Fiji, Halcon);
    • Choose the right optics, lenses, illumination, imaging sensors and computing platforms for the challenge;
  • Perform camera calibration and implement stereo/3D imaging architectures;
  • Prepare functional prototypes and demonstrators.
