What to expect

This role will be within the Chassis Software team, forming part of the Chassis & Motion Control Systems section of Chassis Engineering. The team provides control system and software design and development expertise for existing and future suspension and damping features.

This role is for a highly motivated controls engineer with responsibility for the design, development and delivery of in-house control systems and software for Chassis Electronics suspension features

Key Accountabilities and Responsibilities

   •   Working in a small team in the design and development of model based control strategies. This includes development and demonstration of new concepts and systems via desktop simulation and concept vehicles, and working with software engineers to update and improve existing systems and architectures.
   •   Requirements analysis and decomposition, control strategy design, development and execution of validation process and associated simulation environments.
   •   Working with a team of system and software engineers, including an offshore team, to deliver concept and production systems in a timely manner according to vehicle programme timing and local delivery milestones
   •   Undertake any other work as directed by their line manager in connection with their job as may be requested from time to time

What you'll need


   •   Thorough understanding of Control System design and development using the Mathworks toolchain (Matlab / Simulink / Stateflow) for real time applications
   •   Experience of control strategy development and delivery through all stages of the engineering development ‘V' cycle, including understanding of system and software engineering principals
   •   Prior automotive controls experience such as Chassis, Vehicle Dynamics, or Longitudinal Control preferred, though strong candidates with relevant control system experience from other industries such as aerospace will also be considered
   •   Knowledge of MS Office Applications (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Project)
   •   Degree in Electronics, Software, Automotive / Aerospace engineering or similar subject, or equivalent industry experience
   •   Full UK driving license


   •   Understanding of quality and robustness techniques and standards such as FMEA, P-Diagrams, noise factor analysis, and data analysis techniques to support this
   •   Virtual validation tools and techniques such as desktop Simulation tools (e.g. IPG CarMaker) or HIL environments (e.g. dSpace), and associated plant model development.
   •   Requirements and change management tools and processes, version control, control strategy documentation.
   •   Knowledge of software engineering principals such as model based software development, software architecture, dSpace Targetlink, the C programming language, and relevant standards e.g. MISRA advantageous but not essential
   •   Experience of virtual test, component test and vehicle testing including proving ground environments
   •   Knowledge of Rapid Control Prototyping tools (e.g. dSpace Autobox or similar)
   •   Component and system level issue investigations including appropriate problem solving and reporting tools (Six Sigma, 5D, Is / Is Not, Fault Tree etc)
   •   Understanding of automotive networking, diagnostics and fault handling techniques, and related system development tools (CANalyzer, ASL, CANape, etc.)
   •   Experience of safety critical systems and software, including standards such as ISO26262, IEC61508 or similar.
