Professional Skills

Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) simulators are used by our customers to develop ECUs. The real-time simulations include physical behavior models (e.g. engine models, vehicle dynamics models, battery models), sensor models, and bus communication models (e.g. CAN, FlexRay, Ethernet). As a result of the constant progress of the ECUs to be developed, the models used at the customer's site must be regularly adapted and expanded to include new submodels.

As a member of our customer project team, you will ensure the smooth operation of our HIL simulators and coordinate short-term support cases as well as long-term development projects.
