Do you want to join the Autonomous systems connectivity team at VTT?

Our team focuses on development of communications solutions for autonomous and remote controlled systems such as cars, ships, and unmanned aerial vehicles. We develop also ultra-reliable low latency communications and positioning techniques for future systems. The team is located in Oulu and Espoo, open position is in Espoo premises.

We are looking for a motivated researcher to do research on 5G/ultra-reliable low-latency communications (URLLC) and/or indoor/outdoor positioning according to the applicant’s interest areas. The work can include e.g. exploration of new techniques for improving network performance and quality, improvements to the VTT’s measurement and analysis tools, measurement analysis, result visualization, development of real-time functionalities, or implementation of positioning algorithms according to existing standards. The work will also include performing field measurements and trials together with other team members. The content of the work will be tailored according to the worker's skills and practical experience. We are providing interesting and challenging work in a dynamic research team. This opens excellent possibilities for the applicant to participate both in national and international R&D projects.
