We're Cruise, a self-driving service designed for the cities we love.
We’re building the world’s most advanced, self-driving vehicles to safely connect people to the places, things, and experiences they care about. We believe self-driving vehicles will help save lives, reshape cities, give back time in transit, and restore freedom of movement for many.
Cruisers have the opportunity to grow and develop while learning from leaders at the forefront of their fields. With a culture of internal mobility, there's an opportunity to thrive in a variety of disciplines. This is a place for dreamers and doers to succeed.
If you are looking to play a part in making a positive impact in the world by advancing the revolutionary work of self-driving cars, join us.
The Vehicle Controls team realizes the desired trajectory for our autonomous vehicles using sophisticated trajectory following methods that optimize for dynamic feasibility, safety, and comfort.
We collaborate with our Motion Planning team on multi-functional projects to ensure the trajectories developed for the autonomous vehicle can be followed given our understanding of the vehicle’s underlying physics. At Cruise, our team is responsible for the vehicle modeling, path following, and interfaces to actuator layers to ensure that the physical vehicle is able to smoothly and accurately execute the planned trajectory.
Our algorithms are directly responsible for the actual trajectory of the AV, and thus our work is critically important for the success and safety of the Cruise product. Our work involves knowledge of the latest techniques in optimization, a deep understanding of vehicle dynamics and control, and awareness of all of the contextual nuances of human driving and higher level planning. We push the boundaries of numerical computation while ensuring the robustness needed to achieve safety in all real-world scenarios.
We are looking for a PhD Graduate to help us further develop our trajectory tracking algorithms to navigate our cars through complicated situations and conditions.
