PIX4D – Internship in Vision-Based Navigation & Localization

Lausanne, Vaud, Switzerland


We are looking for a talented master’s thesis student to join our team in Lausanne for work in vision-based navigation, to start as soon as possible. Our clients use Pix4Dcapture, a mobile flight planning app (android and iOS), together with their consumer drones to connect to, fly, and automatically acquire overlapping images. These images are then converted to survey grade maps and 3D models by our desktop software, Pix4Dmapper Pro. Automatic indoor flying is still a challenge due to the absence of a GPS signal and higher obstacle frequency.
