Component Validation Engineer-Autonomous Development & Validation - ENG0037928


Autonomous Vehicle technology is a rapidly developing area of automotive engineering, deploying multiple new sensors, subsystems and features to the vehicle. The combination of these sensors, radars, lidars, and vision systems provide detection of vehicle surroundings. Control systems interpret sensory data to provide navigational paths, detect objects or various traffic signs while in use. Data is also used to distinguish between other vehicles on the road and is useful when planning a desired route.
