Are you interested in robots? Do you like robots that fly? Are you looking for an opportunity to learn how to implement autonomous systems with the industry-leading open source artificial intelligence and robotics tools?
Falkor Systems, Inc., an early-stage startup developing autonomous flying robots for the commercial market, is looking for an engineering student intern. The intern will help us design and build our initial prototypes.
The company’s founder / CEO is a successful entrepreneur whose first company developed a pioneering product development strategy which led the United States government to substantially restructure its technology export control policy. The company eventually sold to Red Hat, Inc.
The intern will:
prototype and build micro-controller and embedded systems electronic components
develop computer vision algorithms
construct flying robot airframes
develop flying robot simulations
participate in flight testing
Our ideal candidate:
is pursuing a Computer Science, Electrical Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering degree
loves open source technology and is familiar with standard open source development tools
possesses a working familiarity with OpenCV, ROS, Arduino, Beaglebone
wants to get in on the ground floor of a world-changing startup
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
