About the Company

At Torc, we have always believed that autonomous vehicle technology will transform how we travel, move freight, and do business.

A leader in autonomous driving since 2007, Torc has spent over a decade commercializing our solutions with experienced partners. Now a part of the Daimler family, we are focused solely on developing software for automated trucks to transform how the world moves freight.

Join us and catapult your career with the company that helped pioneer autonomous technology, and the first AV software company with the vision to partner directly with a truck manufacturer.

Meet the Team:

The Active Sensing and Information Fusion team is responsible for developing perception algorithms to detect and identify objects for Torc’s autonomous driving systems, allowing the system to understand and react to the environment around the vehicle in real-time. Our algorithms utilize 3D point cloud data from LiDAR and objects detected in radar returns. The team also implements the sensor fusion algorithms that combine this data and provide probabilistic state estimation.

We work closely with other engineering teams in behavior and motion planning to create innovative solutions for our Level 4 autonomous system.  

What you'll do:

We are looking for a Software Engineer with an understanding of automated vehicles and expertise in computer vision, LiDAR data, or object tracking. As Software Engineer on our Active Sensing/Perception team, you will develop and test software components and algorithms for autonomous systems. You'll also be involved in creating systems that detect, classify, segment and predict obstacles in the vehicle's surrounding environment.

Must be willing to be based locally in Blacksburg, VA for duration of Co-Op.

  • Developing and testing C++ ROS software along the TORC perception pipeline, including object detection, classification, and tracking.
  • Candidate is expected to work 40 hours a week for the duration of their co-op.

Torc Internships and Co-Ops provide a great way for you to hone your skills and see what life at Torc is all about. Our goal is to enable Interns and Co-Ops to become full-time Torc’rs.

What you need to succeed:

  • Candidate must be a full-time student currently pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in Computer Engineering, Computer Science, or related field
  • 0-2 years of relevant industry experience
  • Experience programming in C++ and ROS (Robot Operating System) and with efficient, clean code
