As an Embedded GPGPU Intern, you will investigate how some of our fundamental imaging and point cloud algorithms that currently are implemented on FPGAs in our FARO Focus and FARO Freestyle devices or run as native code within our Desktop software FARO SCENE can instead be efficiently realized on an embedded platform that includes a powerful GPU. In doing so you will help us unlock new kinds of products and workflows, by e.g. going from offline off-site processing to real-time on-site processing. To perform this work, you will become a member of the interdisciplinary Firmware/Embedded Software team, while also consulting with the specialized product teams.

In this internship, you will GAIN KNOWLEDGE – Become familiar with core processes and develop working knowledge of industry terminology. You will BUILD RELATIONSHIPS – Experience the business rhythm of the organization through participation in department meetings and observation of team role models. You will PRODUCE RESULTS – Complete projects and assignments as given. This is a part time position.

  • Hands-on experience with a GPGPU computing framework such as OpenCL or CUDA
  • Ability to work at the Stuttgart R&D Center when necessary
  • Ability to start in March 2021

Desired Skills:

  • Experience with VHDL
  • Practical experience with parallel algorithm development and optimization, in particular on resource-constrained systems

Key Behaviors:

  • Self-motivated, goal-oriented and eager to learn
