Internship in Image Processing

Do you want to deep dive in the fast-growing industry of drones and get a rewarding experience within a dynamic startup environment?

At Flyability, we believe that robots should be sent in hazardous places and dangerous situations instead of putting humans in danger. To support our belief we created Elios, the world’s first collision-tolerant flying robot that for the first time allows entry to complex and indoor spaces. Joining Flyability is not just taking on a new job, it is seizing the opportunity to improve the life of millions of people and build the future of robotics.

To complete our creative and dynamic team in Lausanne, we are seeking a

Intern in Image Processing (6 months)

Starting date: as soon as possible

Your role:

For this internship, you will join the life of the young company as a full team member and work directly with our Payload Team. You will push the boundaries of drone-based remote visual inspection by developing data acquisition and data processing strategies to improve the image quality and help getting more insight from the drone data. Your programming skills will allow you to implement algorithms in the drone software, in the piloting app or in the data analysis desktop software. You will also help in the selection of cameras and sensors to develop next generation drones.

Possible topics include:

  • Video stabilization, blur detection, extracting best frames from a video
  • Thermal imagery enhancement with RGB data, hot spot detection
  • Assessing image quality with resolution charts
  • Measurements based on depth camera (time of flight, projected patterns, stereo)

Other ideas can be discussed during the application process.

Your profile:

We require a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Robotics, Electronics or similar. You should be an autonomous, self-motivated and curious individual with a passion for drones, who is not afraid of the unknown and willing to learn fast.
