Our Exciting Opportunity

At Ericsson, we are investigating how to perform joint object detection (OD) and simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) in a way that such processes benefit from each other in an efficient and integrated way. Specifically, both processes can help each other to improve the robustness of SLAM algorithms and the performance of OD models.
We are looking for a master thesis student who can help us carry out research on how to integrate visual-inertial SLAM information into object detection models. One concrete example can be adding localization and map information as input channels (besides the usual RGB channels) to convolutional neural networks used for object detection and retrain those models. Also, to implement python and OpenCV scripts that take information from SLAM frameworks in ROS and that allows to study and evaluate this impact.

You will

• Develop a thesis plan and identify research questions related to improving SLAM robustness using object detection
• Carry out a literature survey on prior works related to joint SLAM and object detection
• Become acquainted with ROS and SLAM frameworks
• Become acquainted with object detection or segmentation frameworks using RGB and/or point clouds
• Develop a study and experimental setup
• Develop Python/OpenCV scripts and/or ROS wrapper/libraries for a proof of concept

• Report to the Head of Device Software Research

To be successful in the role you must have

• Master student status in the area of Engineering Physics, Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, or similar
• Proficiency in English
• Excellent analytical skills
• Hands-on programming experience
• Experience with computer vision
• Ability to work independently
• Understanding of networking concepts
• Understanding of User Experience, Quality of Experience, Experiment Design
• Understanding of XR, especially Augmented Reality
