Further Information

The AIFB and FZI deal with all kinds of issues related to autonomous driving. For the scaling of autonomous vehicles, the detection of anomalies, also called corner cases, is enormously important. This can be used to improve models (active learning) or to react live. We are investigating methods that combine camera and lidar sensor data and detect anomalies in relevant areas.

For this, we need support in numerous areas, where you can contribute according to your strengths and interests. Possible topics are Semantic Segmentation, Deep Generative Models, Scene Synthesis, Pseudo-Lidar or State-of-the-art Benchmarking with KITTI, WAYMO, CARLA etc. Please also apply if you are interested interested in a hiwi position, BA etc.
