    • CA1741: Learning for Connected Vehicles

      MERL is seeking a highly motivated intern to collaborate with the Control for Autonomy team in the development of learning technologies for Connected Vehicles. The intern will conduct research in the development of methods for learning/optimization of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) using data-sharing between connected vehicles and/or infrastructure. The ideal candidate has knowledge of at least one of machine learning, estimation, connected vehicles, and vehicle control systems. Knowledge of one or more traffic and/or multi-vehicle simulators (SUMO, Vissim, etc.) is a plus. Good programming skills in Matlab are required and knowledge in Python or C/C++ is a merit. PhD students in engineering, mathematics, or similar are encouraged to apply. The expected duration of the internship is 3-6 months. The start date is flexible.
