“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 its 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.

Marketing & PR, Operations:

Represent AMZ to sponsors and spice up our social media game! Help us with fundraising, organizing exhibitions and events, and take the perfect shots and videos of our record-breaking race cars!

Specifically, we're looking for: 1 web designer, 1 social media interaction responsible, 2 graphic designers, 2 sponsorship responsibles, photographers & videographers. We are also looking for people operating in the fields of human resources and logistics, to help us build a winning team!

(You can also apply for more positions at a time, or even propose your own role)
