Science & fiction make reality! At a party you tell your friend that you work at an innovative company. What do we do at ViNotion? We create “smart solutions" for visual monitoring and detection, using Artificial Intelligence in combination with cameras. Imagine that you can detect, classify and monitor everything a camera sees. This opens a world of possibilities in the field of Crowd Management, Traffic & Mobility, Smart City applications, public safety, defense and many more!
ViNotion has a product range known as ViSense. This product range exists of: ViSense CrowdDynamics, ViSense TrafficDynamics, ViSense MobilityDynamics & Visense MaritimeDynamics. Each product has different features and focuses on specific traffic participants. Moreover, each product is complementary, offering flexibility to our customers. We are looking to extend our product range with more advanced video analysis features and a cloud storage for data acquisition, processing and presentation. As an R&D engineer, you are an important link in the chain and will help ViNotion to offer Artificial Intelligence as a Service.
You will be focusing on research and the further development of our ViSense products by developing Computer Vision algorithms and by performing experiments with realistic video data from the field. You will be researching if state-of-the-art algorithms from literature are suited to be employed in our products. Does it run in real-time and can it be mapped to our hardware- and software platform? You then use your own creativity to improve the algorithm and combine it into a solution for our customer. At first, experiments can be performed in a quick and flexible manner by combining different software components through the use of Python scripts. After validation with adequate realistic video data, the solution should be ported to C/C++ on our hardware platform and integrated into our product. This is done in close collaboration with our software architect and application engineers. All work is dedicated to new and exciting applications in artificial intelligence. Your contribution and original ideas are appreciated and encouraged.
Your work will be seen by governmental agencies, mobility consultants, national services and even international relations in the mobility-event and maritime sector.
Your typical day at ViNotion
Relaxed you enter the Eindhoven office, where the coffee machine awaits you. You take a sip of your coffee while starting up your computer. Your colleagues trickle in and share their new stories. You check your mail, agenda and watch the feedback of your colleagues on your source code on ReviewBoard. You process your reviews and offer an improved version for review to your colleagues. On your Task Kanban it shows that you will start specifying and implementing a new video-analysis function or improvement. You pitch your ideas to your colleagues and use their feedback to get started. In the afternoon you will focus on two different tasks: writing a script for overnight product validation on our computation servers and creating a Powerpoint presentation for our customer. After you finish the last task of your user story, you read an interesting paper with new results in the field of deep learning. Satisfied, you return home to start the next day re-energized and full of new ideas.

ViNotion is a specialist in the field of automated content analysis. Using innovative techniques such as Machine- and Deep Learning, ViNotion creates software solutions that are able to automatically detect and classify traffic participants in real-time.
Our products are able to learn and model specific objects from photo- and video examples. This technology is used in our smart surveillance systems, which are focused on the following applications:
- Analysis of pedestrians and cyclists; ViSense CrowdDynamics;
- Analysis of motorized vehicles; ViSense TrafficDynamics;
- Mobility analysis and consultancy; ViSense MobilityDynamics;
- Waterway analysis and management; ViSense MaritimeDynamics.
Our software solutions generate statistical data from video images, enabling our customers to take control of the situation. Our product range gives insight in the dynamic nature of traffic, such as the number of traffic participants, their movement speed, traversed paths, crowd density, congestion information and much more.
