IoT Engineer for University-Launched Venture Company


About the company
This company is a university-launched venture company centered around the results of their research and development work on human indoor positioning technology.
The company is working on the commercialization of a human flow space analysis platform. This platform is a system that can measure the position of people indoors using a laser positioning scanner (LiDAR), and is able to grasp the flow of an unspecified large number of people in a large space. Their unique sensing technology gives "eyes" and "intelligence" to the space, realizing advanced spatial understanding and spatial control.
Using this system, it is possible to analyze consumer behavior and visualize and predict congestion in large commercial facilities. In collaboration with major real estate companies. they have started a demonstration experiment to predict congestion and analyze consumer behavior in real time from pedestrian trajectories in a large complex facility operated by the company. Since this system grasps the flow of people based on data from sensors installed at various locations in the facility, it is possible to analyze crowded conditions in food courts and other facilities without obtaining personal information.
As an IoT engineer, you will be involved in the development of LiDAR (laser positioning scanner), cameras, and human flow space analysis platforms, which are their core systems.

Your primary responsibilities will focus on general development of IoT-related systems (from upstream processes to actual development work, implementation and maintenance):
・Establishing specifications, restrictions, and quality conditions for the system to be developed with the client
・Designing, implementing, and verifying the system to be developed
・Establishing the development and testing environment necessary for development
・Creating documents such as design documents, verification items, and operation manuals
・Implementing the developed system and educate customers on operation and maintenance
・Providing maintenance and support when problems occur after implementation.

*In the future, depending on your suitability and desire, you may also be required to perform the following duties:
・Training young people in the development team, managing progress and development man-hours, etc.
