Qualcomm SOTIF Engineers (Multiple Levels) in San Diego, California

Company:

Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.

Job Area:

Engineering Group, Engineering Group > ADAS R&D Systems

General Summary:

From modems that allow vehicles to communicate with cellular networks, other vehicles and their surroundings, to Car-to-Cloud solutions that help vehicle hardware and software stay up-to-date, our role in the auto industry has expanded over the past two decades.

We are repeating the same success in Autonomous driving with the Snapdragon Ride Platform. Snapdragon Ride aims to address the complexity of autonomous driving and ADAS by leveraging its high-performance, power-efficient hardware, industry-leading artificial intelligence (AI) technologies and pioneering autonomous driving stack to deliver a comprehensive, cost and energy efficient systems solution.

Enabling safe, comfortable, and affordable autonomous driving includes solving some of the most demanding and challenging technological problems. From centimeter-level localization to multimodal sensor perception, sensor fusion, behavior prediction, maneuver planning, and trajectory planning and control, each one of these functions introduces its own unique challenges to solve, verify, test, and deploy on the road.

Minimum Qualifications:

• Bachelor's degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or related field and 2+ years of Systems Engineering or related work experience.

OR

Master's degree in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or related field and 1+ year of Systems Engineering or related work experience.

OR

PhD in Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or related field.
