    Your team and your responsibilities


    Team/division description:

    Vehicle Performance Engineering – Driving Dynamics:
    A team of 16 engineers, we are responsible for Advance Driving Assistance System (ADAS), Vehicle Dynamics, suspension, steering and brake for vehicles designed and built in Europe. Our work is shared between vehicle project development, performance improvement, benchmarking and production support (9 manufacturing plants in EU).

    Your project:


    Road traffic accidents account for approximately 1.3 million fatalities worldwide. Our aim is to further reduce road fatality, therefore we are designing next generation of Active Safety Systems. To design the most efficient system we study current accidents avoidance performance and extract the remaining accident scenario that should be addressed by next system. The purpose of this study is to estimate which accident scenario have the highest avoidance potential using new Active Safety Systems. Your project will consist at 1st to use results of residual accident study to select the accident scenario which have the biggest mitigation potential. Then you will develop and implement model of new Active Safety Systems within our simulation toolchain. Finally you will assess the safety benefit of the new Active Safety Systems through scenario database simulation and the driver acceptance in our driving simulator.

    Expected workload share:
    • Residual accident analysis study: 20%
    • Develop new Active Safety Systems models: 40%
    • Analyze safety benefit and acceptance: 20%
    • Documentation: 20%


    Duration:   Ideally 9 to 12 months

    Start date:   ideally August

    Confidentiality:  Due to business requirement, not all performed projects can be reflected in the internship report. This issue needs to be discussed with candidate / school in advance.
    It is mandatory that applicants are students for the entire period of the internship.
