The Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen is looking for an Intern (Bachelor or Master student) to develop a graphical user interface (GUI) for a multi-sensor recording system using a C++ Qt5 framework.
The Optics and Sensing Laboratory supports research and development of new algorithms for image processing, enhancement and denoising, the integration of sensing systems of different types (stereo, video, range, etc.), new sensors and algorithms for computational photography and astronomy, and the development of real-time sensing systems for robotic platforms.
What we are looking for
The candidate should have experience in computer science, information technology or software engineering and should be ready to work on this topics for half a year.
- Solid C++ or Python skills
- Experience with STL and Qt or Numpy and PyQt libraries.
