Automated driving is one of the key research-fields for future vehicle generations. Thanks to enhanced automation, the driver can be further relieved from the driving task to achieve a considerable gain in comfort and safety.
One of the key features for automated driving is a complete understanding of the vehicle environment in traffic flow. The environmental detection is primary based on sensors such as radar or camera. Another important role in this constellation is a digital and highly accurate road map.
Assistance systems for automated driving require a digital road map that is significantly more comprehensive, accurate and up-to-date than the map previously known in navigation systems. The Autonomous System and Functions Team is looking for a passionate and versatile engineer for the development of driver assistance systems & autonomous driving to shape the future of automotive industry.
