Job description

LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) is an innovative depth sensing technology which measures the time difference of emitted and received light signals. A MEMS mirror is used to deflect the emitted laser pulses. Photodiodes detect the reflected light. The light’s time-of-flight is determined with time-to-digital converters. Finally, post processing units provide point cloud information of the scenery which is then employed by use-case applications (e.g., assisted/automated driving applications).
The aim of this diploma thesis is to explore and develop novel control system approaches for controlling the MEMS mirror and the shooting of the laser. This topic is of particular importance, because the more accurate the MEMS and laser controlling, the more accurate the environment perception. R&D activities include algorithm exploration in Matlab / C / C++ and a prototypical implementation of the control system with the help of an FPGA prototyping platform.
Infineon Technologies Austria and Graz University of Technology offer a paid diploma thesis in this innovative field of research:
  • Exploration of novel LiDAR control system concepts
  • HW/SW co-design and prototypical implementation with the help of an FPGA platform
Start: 01.12.2018
Employment: Full-time
