About the Company

At Torc, we have always believed that autonomous vehicle technology will transform how we travel, move freight, and do business.

A leader in autonomous driving since 2007, Torc has spent over a decade commercializing our solutions with experienced partners. Now a part of the Daimler family , we are focused solely on developing software for automated trucks to transform how the world moves freight.

Join us and catapult your career with the company that helped pioneer autonomous technology, and the first AV software company with the vision to partner directly with a truck manufacturer.

Meet the Team:

The Perception team is responsible for developing algorithms to detect and identify objects for Torc'sautonomous driving systems, allowing the system to understand and react to the environment around the vehicle in real time. Our algorithms utilize 3D point cloud data from LiDAR and objects detected in radar returns. The team also implements sensor fusion algorithms that combine this data and provide probabilistic state estimation.

What you'll do :

As a Principal Autonomy Engineer (RADAR), you will contribute to developing and implementing the radar active sensing technical roadmap and sensor architecture. You will collaborate with technical leadership in other areas, such as Machine Learning, Vision, and Fusion, to deliver solutions for our autonomous driving system.
