Job summary
A part of Amazon's Robotics Artificial Intelligence Organization, Canvas Technology is using spatial AI to provide end-to-end autonomous delivery of goods. By using state-of-the-art cameras and other sensors, the system perceives its surroundings with unrivaled vision and fidelity. The system combines a mix of high-performance sensors with simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) software that builds and continuously updates maps in real-time. It has the capability to ‘see’ and identify different objects, people, vehicles, and places as it moves and reacts to moving objects in an intelligent way.
The Canvas team is seeking broad, curious engineers to join our team. We holistically design, build, and deliver end-to-end robotic systems. Our team is also responsible for core infrastructure and tools that serve as the backbone of our robotic applications, enabling roboticists, machine learning scientists, software engineers, and hardware engineers to collaborate and deploy systems in the field.
