Uber ATG Internship

Summer 2017

Worked with the Hardware Acceleration and Compute team involved in the design of FPGA firmware for Uber’s fleet of self-driving vehicles.

  • Developed firmware on a soft FPGA microprocessor core for integrating the first 4k image sensor into Uber’s fleet of self-driving vehicles.
  • Migrated the camera platform to an industry-standard imaging framework, allowing integration testing and V&V to be moved offsite to a contract manufacturer. As a result, reduced high-volume manufacturing costs by an order of magnitude and engineering man-hours for in-house testing by tens of hours per unit.
