Post-Doc Opening

We are hiring Post-Docs at Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) 2020-2021. Please don't hesitate to send your interest to eelium@ust.hk cc eeqiuyang@ust.hk

MISSION

Our mission and dedication are to create intelligent systems that can autonomously operate in a complex and diverse environment, with multiple perception approaches. We are fascinated by novel robot concepts that are best adapted for acting with large-scale and dynamic environments and different terrains. We are furthermore keen to give them the intelligence to autonomously navigate in challenging environments. This includes novel methods and tools for human-robot interaction, perception, cognition, knowledge abstraction, mapping, learning, representation, planning, and execution.

To further explore our visions and achievements, please refer to our autonomous driving products at: unity-drive.com.
