Simulation Verification Engineer - Decision & Control Team
Detroit, Michigan, USA
Who is Zenuity?
A joint venture owned 50/50 by Volvo Cars and Veoneer, we are creating software for autonomous driving vehicles.
Watch these short videos to gain insight to our culture, work environment and inspiring work that we’ve showcased at Las Vegas CES 2019.
Role: Simulation Verification Engineer - Decision & Control Team
The Decision & Control Team at Zenuity develops algorithms that use map data and perception/sensor and motion planning information to make autonomous driving decisions relating to traffic behavior, object avoidance and driving laws that allow the autonomous vehicle to safely function alongside other vehicles and objects, static and dynamic. You will be responsible for the development of Zenuity’s simulation verification environment, and for verification testing of algorithms for safety critical autonomous vehicle systems for real production products. You will also collaborate with the simulation operations team to create, maintain and update virtual scenarios for autonomous vehicle testing. You will use agile processes, graphics and compute APIs and C++ code to develop this simulation environment which will connect algorithms developed by the teams. You will have direct access to test vehicles to rapidly experience your results first-hand. You will work on self-guided cross-functional Agile teams and interface internally with our User Experience (UX) Team where you will help make decisions.
