Research Fellow (Intelligent Vision Systems, Autonomous Vehicles)

Established in 1981, the SCHOOL OF ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC ENGINEERING (EEE) is one of the founding Schools of the Nanyang Technological University. Built on a culture of excellence, the School is renowned for its high academic standards and strong tradition in research. To support teaching and cutting-edge research, EEE is host to 11 research centres and more than 50 laboratories, which are well-equipped with modern facilities and state-of-the-art equipment. With about 200 faculty members and an enrolment of more than 4,000, of which about 1,300 are graduate students, it is one of the largest EEE schools in the world.

A research associate is to work on project ’Autonomous Docking of Food Catering Truck to Aircraft’. The successful applicant is required to develop a food catering truck-docking assistant system helping a human operator to dock the truck precisely. In addition, the system should prevent errors that damage the aircraft and cause flight delays during the docking process. Sensors will be used to determine the position of the aircraft and the truck. Appropriate docking algorithms will be developed and implemented to guide the docking of the truck based on optimal path planning and real-time feedback of the sensors’ measurement data.


  • Ph.D. degree in relevant areas of the project.
  • Demonstrated technical knowledge and capabilities (in the form of publication records) pertaining to intelligent vision systems and/or autonomous vehicles.
  • Experiences in algorithm development and implementation for intelligent vision systems and/or autonomous vehicles working under various operational conditions.
