Job Description

Our client is a Subsea Robotics organisation, developing live 3D technology from visual inspection and machine learning driven visual analysis to further the progression of state-of-the-art subsea inspection.

The growth of Artificial Intelligence opens up unique opportunities in subsea research and they are looking for people who are passionate about experimenting, testing, developing and deploying new concepts.

Machine Vision Engineer

Their R&D team is growing, so they are looking for a Machine Vision Engineer to work on the design and implementation of camera hardware, the video processing pipeline and real-time 3D reconstruction software, using existing research approaches and the development of novel solutions to the challenges faced in subsea vision. The role will involve working closely with hydrographic surveyors and the operations side of the business to understand requirements, participating in field trials of software on robotic platforms, offering a high degree of autonomy and the opportunity to be self-sufficient in research and development.

Responsibilities will include:
*Defining the whole image pipeline, from the camera sensor to a final 3D reconstruction.
*Designing algorithms to improve underwater image quality and stability.
*Designing vision-based algorithms to provide accurate camera pose estimates.
*Working with cutting edge algorithms to provide a high quality, high resolution and accurate 3D reconstruction of the underwater environment.
*Work as a part of the team to investigate design approaches, prototype new technology, and evaluate technical feasibility.
*Deliver high quality software against challenging schedules.
*Design, implement and deploy custom computer vision and AI applications
*Actively take a leadership role in computer vision and AI work definition and work shaping activities.
*Test, debug, configure, and document the overall demo.

To be considered for this role, applicants will need to be qualified to Master's or PhD level in Computer Science, Computer Vision or a related discipline with significant experience in computer vision, image processing and machine learning research and development. You will have experience of SLAM (ideally vision based, multi-view geometry, 3D reconstruction, SFM) and will have experience with camera calibration, sensor fusion (e.g. Kalman filters, perhaps visual inertial odometry).

You will have experience of developing reasonable complex software from scratch or leading/architecting development, with a strong development background in Linux, OpenCV, C/C++ and 3D computer vision experience.

In addition, the following would be beneficial:
*Experience with object detection/image segmentation/deep learning.
*Hands-on robotics (particularly field robotics) or embedded systems experience.
*Interest in applied robotics or AI
*CUDA programming
*Public work you can reference, such as papers, Github, shipped software etc.
*Hands-on robotics (particularly field robotics) or embedded systems experience
