The office is located in Delft, next to Ikea, making it easily accessible by public transportation. Easy accessibility also goes for our testing location in the northern part of Delft.

The job

As a working student at Prime Vision, you will be working on your own project. There may be occasions when we ask you to assist a colleague, but you will primarily be responsible for your own tasks. This requires a certain level of autonomy, but it also provides you with opportunities for self-development.

Examples of assignments include:


      • Test setup for validating an optical floor sensor.

      • Hardware for remotely turning the robots on/off.

      • Power Distribution PCB.

      • 360-degree object detection solution using Time-of-Flight sensors.

      • Custom velocity sensor.

      • Positioning of a package using multiple load cells.

      • Real-time accurate weight measurement of a package on a moving robot.

      • Precise battery life estimation.

    These assignments allow you to gain hands-on experience and to contribute to the development of cutting-edge technologies in the field.
