Honeywell Master's AI Research Scientist Intern in Plymouth, Minnesota

The Safe Autonomous Systems (SAS) Advanced Technology team is seeking an Intern to join our autonomous systems development team for the summer of 2021. Candidates should be in pursuit of a Master’s (or PhD) degree in Robotics, Computer Science, Aeronautical (Aerospace) or Electrical Engineering. The primary location for this position is our Plymouth, MN research laboratory. Candidates will join the team responsible for technology development, and perform supporting tasks on technical projects.

The SAS Advanced Technology team conducts development of safe autonomous technologies with a focus on aerial vehicles. Important research areas include technologies for sensing and sensor fusion, perception, positioning and navigation in unconstrained environments with degraded/denied GPS, route/path planning and execution in dynamic environments, and sensor fusion algorithms. Additional high value areas of research include design, analysis and inference, utilizing machine learning, computer vision, knowledge of 3D simulation, and in general artificial intelligence techniques.

Experience particularly relevant to this position include: sensor fusion for navigation, vision/Radar/LIDAR based navigation, SLAM; motion planning for holonomic and non-holonomic vehicles in cluttered (dynamic) environments; object recognition and image segmentation using both ‘classical’ image based methods and emerging techniques based on deep learning. Experience in implementing algorithms in C++ or Python using the Robot Operating System (ROS) is a strong plus. Candidates will perform tasks under leadership of senior staff.
