Solution Engineer (Robotics)

Great opportunity to work with some of the most advanced autonomous robotics companies in the world.

Background

High performance robotic solutions are no longer limited to factories and warehouses, but are becoming more and more common in environments such as hospitals, hotels and homes. As robots operate in less constrained, more dynamic environments, spatial understanding is essential for reliable operation and intelligent behaviour. There are three levels of spatial understanding required to enable robust, reliable autonomy: pose tracking (localisation), mapping and semantics. Using vision as the core sensing modality, all three levels of spatial understanding can be combined to offer full stack Spatial AI, providing richer maps, robustness to change and greater adaptability to challenging, dynamic environments.

Who we are

SLAMcore is a London-based startup founded by visual SLAM (simultaneous localisation and mapping) algorithm pioneers and specialists. With funding from top venture companies, we are developing breakthrough Spatial AI solutions for next-generation robots and other smart devices by harnessing computer vision, sensor fusion and machine learning. Our aim is to greatly reduce the time and cost for companies to deploy advanced robotic solutions whilst delivering performance they could never achieve on their own.
