Autopilot is of critical importance to Tesla’s mission. It is safer, makes driving more enjoyable, and will ultimately deliver on the promise of self-driving cars. As a member of Tesla’s Autopilot Simulation team, you will be in a unique position to accelerate the pace at which Autopilot improves over time. The main ways in which the simulation team realizes this include:
The foundation on which we build these elements is our simulation environment. We develop photorealistic worlds for our virtual car to drive in, enabling our developers to iterate faster and rely less on real-world testing. We strive for perfect correlation to real-world vehicle behavior and work with Autopilot software engineers to improve both Autopilot and the simulator over time. Our group is a cross-disciplinary team with people from various backgrounds and fields of expertise, like CS generalists, mechanical engineers, game developers, and computer graphics artists. As a member on this team, you will be challenged to learn about all these different disciplines and use your own expertise to further improve the scope and usability of our tools.
As an Autopilot Simulation Tools Engineer, you will contribute to the development of the simulation by building tools that enable rapid prototyping/testing of Autopilot. You will be expected to contribute to such projects as photorealistic world generation, simulation scenario authoring, performance evaluation, and content validation tools. These simulation tools will both assist the simulation team and the broader Autopilot organization in both feature creation and performance improvement.
