Required Skills
Data Structures & Algorithms
  • Experience implementing, testing, and deploying operator interfaces on real robots
  • Experience with various virtual reality and GUI frameworks
  • Capable of quickly writing massive amounts of high quality, well-tested, operator interface software
  • Possess both a theoretical understanding and have practical experience with operator interfaces
  • Have a deep knowledge of state of the art techniques, data structures, and software tools
  • Thrive in a high pace environment, where solutions are often unclear and require exploration
  • Design, implement, test, and deploy operator interfaces for humanoid robots. These interfaces will include both 3D virtual reality interfaces and 2D traditional GUI keyboard/mouse interfaces
  • Develop an immersive avatar operator interface, in which the human operator feels as if they are the actual robot
  • Integrate various sensing, perception, and autonomy modules in the operator interfaces, allowing operators to operate in a higher-level supervisory role
  • Develop mission-level operator interfaces for interacting with nominally fully-autonomous robots, which will occasionally require human intervention in challenging situations
  • Develop and use modern software engineering techniques to implement high quality, well-tested software
  • Evaluate potential operator interface solutions and make design trade offs and decisions based on robot requirements
  • Engineer and ship high quality, reliable software that will be deployed to the real world
  • Work with the Figure Integration and Testing team to evaluate and continuously improve your operator interfaces
