“CHALLENGE YOUR LIMITS - CHALLENGE THE HUMAN DRIVER”

Need a real challenge? The AMZ driverless team is going all out in building a driverless race car that can even beat the human driver! Come and join our team to build AMZ's next generation autonomous system! Take a deep dive into the fascinating technology that makes our autonomous race car see the track, estimate it's current state and execute the optimal race line.

Besides the engineering team, the AMZ is looking for strong individuals in the field of business management to help with fundraising, community outreach and event planning. Here you can learn what it takes to operate a formula student club. Help us in building a strong team and represent the AMZ in front of sponsors and the media.

 

Joining our team means implementing software/hardware and/or taking responsibility in the following modules: 

 

Perception:

You build the senses of the car. Develop a camera system and be creative with the newest vision algorithms and machine learning. Or work with the newest LiDAR technology to detect as many cones as possible, pushing the limits of how fast we can drive.

Estimation:

Combine the inputs from multiple sensors to provide an accurate estimate of the car’s velocity, build a map of the track while driving using a complex SLAM algorithm, or plan the best way to navigate the track.

Control:

Here, it’s all about pushing the car to its limits. Plan and choose the ideal trajectory around the track, or develop the algorithms that control the many actuators, to finally be faster than a human driver.

Software Infrastructure:

A reliable and tested software stack is the backbone of an autonomous race car. Build on the framework to integrate the software into the car, or improve and expand our Automated Testing System running on our in-house server to allow code improvements without hitting the test track.

Mechatronics:

It’s all about the hardware: develop a lightweight design that integrates the autonomous sensors concept into tight space provided by a powerful electric race car.

Electronics:

Electronics are the nerves and veins of the car. Develop and maintain circuits and accumulators that can deal with the increased power demand of the autonomous system.

Operations:

Represent the AMZ to sponsors and the media, help us with fundraising, organize exhibitions and help us in building a winning team. Besides fundraising, the operations module mainly operates in the fields of human resources, public relations and logistics.

Social Media, Film and Photography:

Every season, the AMZ has its exciting and inspiring moments. Support the operations team by taking the perfect shots and videos of our record breaking race cars. 

Applications

Our recruiting process for this season is open! If you are excited about the project and would like to join us this season, we would ask you to send us your application until October 2nd (CV and a short motivation on why you want to join AMZ) to : recruiting@driverless.amzracing.ch.
