Research Engineer / Scientist
In the framework of a research project funded by the Walloon Region and conducted in collaboration with other academic and Industrial partners, we are looking for a research scientist/engineer with a master's degree in Electrical Engineering (Applied Sciences, Engineering Sciences), Physics, Computer Science or Mathematics.
The project consists in developing an AI-based system to extract information about ground targets (vehicles, people…) from images from camera’s on-board a vehicle, looking outwards at 360°. From that information, a situational awareness map is to be created from which a threat analysis is conducted. The Royal Military Academy is more specifically in charge of the creation of the situational awareness map, modelling the environment to extract the location the most susceptible to be used by a threat and a modelling of threat behaviour (trajectories, speed…) in order to assess a threat probability to each target.
The successful candidate will have, in cooperation with his colleagues and partners, to devise the necessary algorithms, implement, evaluate their performance and validate them. There are no specific constraints as to the methods that have to be used. The candidate is also expected to publish the relevant results in the scientific literature while taking the industrial valorisation of these results into account. The successful candidate will be integrated in the « Image Processing » research unit lead by Prof. Xavier Neyt. This research unit is part of the Signal and Image Centre where about 20 researchers are active.
Performing the research tasks of the project allotted to the Royal Military Academy : design and implement algorithm to produce situational awareness maps and the threat analysis based on the information extracted from the on-board cameras and ancillary data. The results will have to be communicated to the other members of the research consortium and in the scientific literature, mostly in English.
