Master's thesis (all genders welcome) – Behavior generation for automated vehicles AUDI AG

To be filled: 01.02.2019

Work Environment

Driver assistance systems support and reduce strain on drivers while they are driving a motor vehicle, offering them ever-greater safety and comfort. Automated driving in particular is a further step towards the future and, in certain situations, allows the driver to turn over part or all of the tasks of driving to the vehicle. Your involvement in the predevelopment of automated driving at AUDI AG enables you to gain experience in this rapidly growing field and to participate in the development of conditionally and highly automated driving functions in an environment that is both scientifically oriented and practical at the same time.

Job Purpose/Role

In automated driving, intelligent maneuvering of the vehicle in complex situations poses a major challenge. To generate safe and comfortable driving behavior, information about the vehicle’s environment is interpreted. Subsequently, an optimal driving behavior is determined in several planning levels and turned into a vehicle movement on the control level. 
As part of your graduation thesis, you will develop new concepts and algorithms to ensure optimal driving behavior. By evaluating and conducting studies with test persons, the impressions of potential consumers can also be obtained. 
Your specific tasks include: 

  • Becoming familiar with the state of the art 
  • Concept development and prototypical implementation of algorithms 
  • Evaluating the methods based on measured data, in simulations and in a test vehicle 

    The exact topic is defined in collaboration with the supervising university.

Key Requirements/Skills/Experience

  • Studying for a degree in a technical subject 
  • Good programming skills 
  • Knowledge in at least one of the following areas: Driver assistance systems, robotics, artificial intelligence, computer vision, control engineering 
  • Ideally, you have had some experience with ROS, ADTF or other middleware 
  • Dedication and an independent way of working 
  • Class B driving license 

    Women are particularly encouraged to apply. 

    We would like to draw your attention to the fact that there are several vacancies for this profile
