The brake system in a heavy truck is mainly a electronically controlled pneumatic system. Our brake system is bought from a system supplier on specification but some functionality is developed internally. We are now looking for a highly motivated engineer to strengthen our team in the brake system area.
With the future of electric vehicles in mind we want to strengthen our team in the e-mobility area with focus on the braking system End User Functions, e.g. auxiliary braking and brake blending. Our group is also highly involved in the development towards autonomous vehicles where one of the challenges is to ensure fail-operational capabilities of the vehicle dynamics control systems. This includes development of a Vehicle Motion Management with redundancy capability for the safety related control systems of braking and steering.
As Function Owner you are responsible to safe guard your functions from the “cradle to the grave” which means that you will be involved with maintenance of existing functions and systems as well as defining future functions and systems.
