Oszkár Józsa
Software Engineer, Robotics and Computer Vision Professional
I am a Robotics Engineer at Ascent Robotics, focusing on self-driving technology, machine learning and software development. Ascent is a quickly growing AI startup that aims to be the best in the field in Japan. The current focus is on AI research and simulation and machine learning platform development (Atlas Engine) with the long-term aim of a general purpose AI that will be used for drones, cars, spacecraft and anything that moves.
I am also a master’s student at Georgia Tech, participating in the OMSCS program (in partnership with Udacity). I am pursuing the Computational Perception & Robotics specialization and I plan to finish the program at the end of 2017.
Previous Positions
I have worked at 3 companies before my current position
  • Self-Driving Car Engineer at ZMP Inc. I was doing both software engineering ans system engineering, working on ZMP’s self driving technology called RoboCar (which is the testbed vehicle of the RobotTaxi). I mainly worked on Lidar technology (Velodyne, Konica Minolta, IBEO), both on system integration/calibration and software development including object detection and tracking algorithm research. I was also a self-driving car operator, testing the RoboCar and its systems on the streets of Tokyo.
  • Software Engineer at the Cognex Corporation, I was member of the Vision Products unit (Core Engineering team). I worked on front-end development of industrial computer vision software (Cognex VisionView, Cognex Designer) both on PC and embedded systems at the Budapest office of the Company. I was part of a large multi-site, multi-language, multi-product project spanning over 2.5 years from initial software design through final release.
  • Research Intern/Contractor at the Distributed Events Analysis Research Laboratory of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences Institute for Computer Science and Control. I mostly worked on urban 3D point cloud algorithms research and development, namely on the i4D project. Using point clouds collected with a Velodyne lidar, I worked on scene understanding, object detection and segmentation and 3D surface reconstruction. I also worked on 2D image processing research.
