additional remarks ITK is a premium development partner of the automotive, aerospace and several other industries. We develop systems and solutions for the challenges of the future. We want you to build a model of the intelligent crane of the future with us. The goal is for the crane to autonomously find and get objects and deliver them to a storage, while avoiding obstacles. Therefore you´ll be given a modern and powerful embedded platform for autonomous driving, already set up with some sensors and actors. Your task will be to implement algorithms for autonomous steering. You will complete the task in two agile teams with one project leader. The hardware team will be working with a cutting edge embedded devise running on Linux supporting CUDA. The software team will develop the algorithms for autonomously steering the crane. A project leader will coordinate the two teams, and monitor the status of the project. With ITK you will have the opportunity to work with highly experienced professionals in the most interesting IT field of the near future.
