Help us build our next-generation 3D SLAM software

March 27th, 2019

Wildcat acceleration development

Wildcat SLAM is our next-generation 3D SLAM software based on LiDAR sensors. It is a cutting edge C++ Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping (SLAM) library currently being developed by CSIRO’s Data61 Robotics and Autonomous Systems Group (RASG).

Wildcat is a key enabling technology in robotics perception for autonomous robot operation. It processes various sensor data, including 3D lidar and IMU data, in order to produce an accurate trajectory of the robot in 3D space as well as a detailed 3D point cloud map of the explored environment.

Wildcat is an evolution of previous SLAM technologies developed by RASG, which is being successfully commercialised in collaboration with GeoSLAM and being used as a key technology in a UAV (drone) automation startup.

We are currently recruiting for various 3-months contractor positions specific for this project:

Work with talented people to solve the world’s biggest challenges

At CSIRO you can be part of helping to solve big, complex problems that make a real difference to our future.

We spark off each other, learn from each other, trust each other and collaborate to achieve more than we could individually in a supportive, rewarding, inclusive and truly flexible environment.

With over 80 people, the Robotics and Autonomous Systems team employs Research Scientists, Post-Doctoral Fellows, Engineers, PhD & Masters Students and Industrial Trainees.
