    • SP1307: Vehicular traffic environment sensing

      MERL is seeking a highly motivated, qualified intern to join a three month internship program. The ideal candidate will be expected to carry out research on environmental sensing in high frequency bands. The candidate is expected to develop innovative sensing technologies. Candidates should have strong knowledge about neural network and learning techniques, such as machine learning, deep learning, shallow learning, and distributed learning. In addition, understanding of spectrum sensing and wireless communications technologies is necessary. Proficient programming skills with Python, Matlab, and C++, and strong mathematical analysis will be additional assets to this position. Candidates in their junior or senior years of a Ph.D. program are encouraged to apply.
