Job Description

Front End WebGL Engineer,  Civil Maps
San Francisco

About Us:

Civil Maps develops cognition for autonomous cars, enabling them to crowdsource a dynamic, 3D map for safe driving at continental scale. Our mission is to make it possible for fully autonomous vehicles to drive anywhere smoothly and safely. Through artificial intelligence and vehicle-based local processing, Civil Maps converts sensor data into meaningful map information built specifically to direct fully autonomous vehicles.

Civil Maps solution aggregates raw 3D data from LIDAR (high-resolution laser imaging), camera and other sensors on-board autonomous vehicles and organizes the information into machine-readable maps. The information is vastly more actionable than today's map data and requires only a fraction of the data storage. Thanks to this light data footprint, Civil Maps’ spatial information is far less costly to transmit over cellular networks, enabling the company to easily crowd-source, update and share road data in real time—a major improvement over the lengthy processes that require human annotation in current use. As a result, the company can quickly generate and maintain maps that give fully autonomous vehicles the comprehensive and precise knowledge to autonomous operate safely and smoothly on all roads.Responsibilities
