    • SP1155: Coexistence of the Heterogeneous Wireless Technologies

      MERL is seeking a highly motivated, qualified intern to join the Electronics and Communications group for a three month internship program. The ideal candidate will be expected to carry out research on coexistence of the heterogeneous wireless technologies in the Sub-1 GHz (S1G) band. The candidate is expected to develop innovative coexistence technology for IEEE 802.15.4g to mitigate interference caused by other S1G technologies such as IEEE 802.11ah, LoRa and SigFox. The candidates should have knowledge of 802.15.4g and 802.11ah protocols. Additionally, the candidate should also be familiar with NS3 simulators. Candidates in their junior or senior years of a Ph.D. program are encouraged to apply.

    • SP1460: Advanced Vehicular Technologies

      MERL is seeking a highly motivated, qualified intern to collaborate with the Signal Processing group and the Control for Autonomy team in developing technologies for Connected Automated Vehicles. The ideal candidate is expected to be involved in research on collaborative learning between infrastructure and vehicles. The candidate is expected to develop learning-based technologies to achieve vehicle coordination, estimation and GNSS-based localization using data and computation sharing between vehicle and infrastructure. The candidates should have knowledge of machine learning, connected vehicles and V2X communications. Knowledge of one or more traffic and/or multi-vehicle simulators (SUMO, Vissim, etc.) and GNSS is a plus. Candidates in their junior or senior years of a Ph.D. program are encouraged to apply. The expected duration of the internship is 3-6 months, with start date in September/October 2020.
