Internship in Thermal Imaging

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 Thermal Imaging (6 months)

Starting date : as soon as possible


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 the thermal imaging capabilities of our drones. Your understanding of remote sensing and imagery will allow you to analyze the specific case of indoor thermal imaging for industrial assets.
After getting familiar with the thermal camera mounted on Elios 2, you will look at radiometric calibration procedures, or alternative hardware to enable absolute temperature measurement with our drone. You may also use your programming skills to implement a few functions in our piloting app, such as automatic detection of hot spots on the thermal video feed, or edge enhancement based on RGB video feed.


We require a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Robotics, Remote sensing, Electrical engineering or other related programs. 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. You should have experience is some, if not all of the following:

  • Photography - basic understanding of cameras
  • Remote sensing - basic understanding of thermal imagery
  • Programming in C, Python, Matlab or Java
  • Image processing with OpenCV or other libraries
  • Interest in electronics is a plus

Flyability is a young Swiss company that values autonomy and thorough leadership. Every day, you will have the opportunity to share your ideas and contribute to solving challenging problems. We all pull on the same rope and each voice is important to move forward.
