My client in Maidenhead is currently in need of a Robotics Engineer due to expansion.

The ideal candidate will have past experience, at least 2+ years, designing systems and implementing hardware and software designs that enable machines to operate in unconstrained environments with little to know operator support.

You will be working on the development of numerous capabilities on our vehicles including obstacle avoidance, Alt-Nav and novel payload integration. Developing machine autonomy that delivers value to our customers.

You will be working in close contact with suppliers of autonomous system to integrate their capability into our vehicles. Also leading the internal development of our own systems with support from mechanical, electrical and flight test engineers to get your designs off the ground.


In this role, you will be at the forefront of autonomous technology, contributing to the advancement of self-driving vehicles. Your main focus will be on addressing technical challenges in mapping, localization, object detection, behaviour and trajectory prediction. You will generate innovative ideas to overcome these challenges, pushing the boundaries of what is possible in the field. This will involve designing and implementing safety-critical control algorithms specifically tailored for self-driving vehicles, ensuring their reliable and secure operation. You will also play a vital role in analyzing data from both simulation and real-world testing. By evaluating and refining the system's performance, you will contribute to enhancing its capabilities and overall efficiency. As part of your responsibilities, you will tackle complex issues related to software components distributed across multiple processors. This includes resolving problems associated with sensors and physical actuators, guaranteeing seamless interaction and smooth functionality.

Additionally, you will lead the integration of third-party sensor, communication, and actuator systems onto vehicles. Your expertise will be crucial in ensuring the compatibility and successful integration of these systems with the autonomous platform. Flight testing of new autonomous features will also be under your purview.
