Control Theory Engineer

Do you want to be part of delivering world-leading solutions for Autonomous Driving (AD) systems? Do you want to apply your skills within control theory and software development to making traffic safer? Thrive in a team environment with both internal and external interfaces? If you are drawn to the description below, then you might be our next star as part of our team in Gothenburg! 

What you will do

As Control Theory Engineer you will make it possible for Zenuity to argue for the performance of the vehicle controllers in highly autonomous cars. To achieve this you will be using simulations, hardware-in-loop environment and actual car tests. You will do this as part of a talented team, working together to support Zenuity’s Vehicle Control product. Vehicle Control is the plug-and-play system for AD in cars, on top of which an AD system can be plugged in. The vehicle controllers must be able to safely convert input from the AD systems into commands for the vehicle’s brake, propulsion, and steering, as well as on its own handle safe stop in the case of AD failure or loss of communication.

Your main tasks will be:

  • Derivation of accurate mathematical models of vehicle dynamics
  • Development and analysis of model simulations in Matlab, Simulink and Carmaker
  • Tuning and verification of the vehicle controller, with respect to performance and safety.
  • Work in sprints as part of small scrum team

Skills and competences

We believe that you have a strong theoretical background in automatic control, with coding skills for development of efficient simulation strategies. You are also a good team player, with a positive mindset, and are open to constructive discussions. The following skills and competencies are meritorious:

  • Control Theory & System Identification
  • Statistical inference & probabilistic modelling
  • Modelling of physical systems and simulation of complex engineering systems
  • Matlab/Simulink
  • C++, Python is a plus
  • Knowledge of CarMaker is a plus
