Hello folks. My first post here.

Currently working on Level 2 Autonomous tech at a Tier 1 supplier firm in Michigan. Mostly radar based perception and a little bit of behavioral / function Development . YOE is 2 years. Work here isn't as challenging as I would have hoped. We don't really focus on algos / data structures much. No computer vision either as all the image processing / vision is done by another supplier. Did ML in college but never used it here and will not use it here either. I'm worried I'm falling behind the rest of the self driving engineers' pack. I'm hoping to get an idea as to what I would need to work on to be able to interview with the firms on the West coast .
Thanks !

      Good luck with your prototype and valuation! Cruise took 2.25b from SoftBank + 1.1b from GM + 750m from Honda and you still have no product or revenue!
