Waymo is the self-driving technology company with a mission to make it safe and easy for people and things to move around. Building on software and sensor technology developed at Google, Waymo is now launching the world’s first fully self-driving transportation service that will take members of the public from A to B at the touch of a button.
Hardware Engineering is a diverse, innovative, and collaborative group of electrical, mechanical, reliability, software and vehicle engineers. We design, build, and perfect the products which are the eyes and ears of Waymo's self-driving systems, and integrate those products into vehicle platforms. We're seeking curious and talented teammates to keep us moving in the right direction.
To enable our vehicles achieve extraordinary levels of reliability, we need to develop clever methods that enable our vehicles to self-diagnose their state of health. In this internship, you will work on a novel approach for diagnosing the state of health of autonomous sensors.
In this internship, you’ll:
Develop state-of-health signatures for the sensors
Correlating those signatures with the age of sensors
Creating a model that predicts sensor health based on these signatures
At a minimum, we’d like you to have:
Masters Degree in Mechanical Engineering, Physics, or Related Discipline
Experience with data collection using microphones and accelerometers
Experience with digital signal processing
Experience developing empirical models
It's preferred if you have:
Expertise in acoustics and vibration
Expertise in machine learning
