Doctoral student in event-based vision in challenging automotive scenarios

School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at KTH

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Project description

Third-cycle subject: Computer Science

Event-based vision sensors are a novel brain-inspired class of vision sensors that perceive their environment as sequence of changes (“events”) rather than consecutive image frames. Such vision systems offer significant advantages in terms of low-latency and low-computing processing; but on the other hand require a complete rethinking of computer-vision algorithms.

In this project, we will focus on interpreting visually challenging automotive scenes in real-time. Examples could be driving in rain or snow, darkness, or entering/leaving a tunnel with drastically changing light conditions.

The Ph.D. candidate together with the KTH supervisor will identify and select the most promising application scenarios, and develop algorithms optimized for accuracy, low-latency, and small power consumption.

The ideal candidate brings expertise in neuromorphic (vision) processing and/or general computer vision, strong programming skills, and possibly knowledge about machine learning in applications.

Doctoral student in modelling of future power systems

School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at KTH

KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm has grown to become one of Europe’s leading technical and engineering universities, as well as a key centre of intellectual talent and innovation. We are Sweden’s largest technical research and learning institution and home to students, researchers and faculty from around the world. Our research and education covers a wide area including natural sciences and all branches of engineering, as well as architecture, industrial management, urban planning, history and philosophy.

Project description

The research group Power System Planning and Electricity Markets at KTH is participating in several national and international research projects which aim to design the carbon dioxide-free power and energy system of the the future. To study these issues it is necessary to have energy system models that can mange large and complex systems. An example of such a model is Spine, which has been developed in an EU project, where KTH has participated. Spine is an open-source software, which can be used for simulating a wide range of energy systems.
A particular challenge when simulating large systems is the enormous amount of data that need to be collected and processed. For example, to study the Nordic electricity market or the European energy system, it would not be possible to model each power plant in detail. Therefore, it is necessary to aggregate similar power plants into so-called equivalents. In order to get reliable simulation results, it is important to set up equivalents in such a manner that they correctly represent the technical possibilities and limitations (in terms of energy storage, possibility to control the electricity generation etc.) of the underlying resource.
We are looking for a Ph.D. student who can participate in the work to develop new methods to model large energy systems. The research will mainly focus on formulating optimisation models and to develop solution methods for these. The work can for example include new types of models to compare different designs of bidding and pricing structures in electricity markets, subsystems of larger models as well as methods to create equivalents and process input data.
The Ph.D. project is funded within the framework of a larger collaborative project, where the research group is participating. In addition to your own research, you will cooperate with and deliver results to this collaborative project, whereby you will get excellent possibilities to build a personal network which will be useful for your future career.  

Third-cycle subject:  Electrical engineering

Supervision: Associate Professor Mikael Amelin
