Sensors & Software

Main Task

Sensors are used for critical measurements such as throttle amount and brake pressure, but also for gathering data on general parameters of the car. You will be responsible for the sensors and the data acquisition system of the LFS car. The car has a number of control units which read sensor- and driver input and transmit these via a communication bus. They also deal with things like starting the car. You will work with programming the general functionality of the control units, as well as the handling of sensor input. By acquiring data it is possible to verify the design of the car. This position will be responsible for the sensors and the data aquisition system. You will also work with programming of the control units on the car.

Your Profile

You should have an interest in programming, and used to working in different enviroments. You have experience in connecting hardware with software, transducers in particular being a merit. Experience in C-programming is meriting.
