At Torc, we have always believed that autonomous vehicle technology will transform how we travel, move freight, and do business.
A leader in autonomous driving since 2007, Torc has spent over a decade commercializing our solutions with experienced partners. Now a part of the Daimler family, we are focused solely on developing software for automated trucks to transform how the world moves freight.
Join us and catapult your career with the company that helped pioneer autonomous technology, and the first AV software company with the vision to partner directly with a truck manufacturer. You'll work with an experienced team of people who are committed to creating safer roads and saving lives, and your contributions will have an unequivocal impact on the future of trucking and autonomous technology.
About the Role:
Our Perception teams are responsible for developing perception algorithms to detect and perceive objects for Torc's autonomous driving systems, allowing the system to understand and react to the environment around the vehicle in real-time. Perception team members create software to utilize algorithms that use sensor data from LiDAR, RADAR, and cameras to detect, classify, segment, and detect, and track obstacles in the vehicle's surrounding environment. Perception software utilizes 3D point cloud data from LiDAR and objects detected in radar returns to create a situational awareness for our behaviors and path planning teams to make vehicle decisions to navigate safety. We work closely with other engineering teams in behavior and motion planning to create innovative solutions for our Level 4 autonomous system.
In this role engineers are responsible for various software development and engineering activities supporting the delivery of autonomy algorithm software to the overall system solution within Perception area utilizing computer vision and machine learning techniques and skill set.
Responsible for executing full software development lifecycle activities using primarily C++ skills in Linux development environment using Lean-Agile methodologies
Responsible to complete software assignments including but not limited to software design, implementation, unit testing, vehicle testing and deployed software maintenance.
Assist in root cause analysis of issues found in vehicle testing
Support team in identifying daily assignments and reporting progress at daily stand ups.
Support software and system level test plans and verification strategies to support ongoing feature development and bug fixes.
Responsible to ensure software updates do not regress the software performance by utilizing simulation software and scenarios.
Update simulation software and scenarios for new features or situations encountered in testing software
