Internship Assignment - DBW Interface Test Device

location: Benschop

We are looking for a Bachelor of Engineering intern to develop a test device for the ‘Drive By Wire’ interface of our vehicles. The ‘Drive By Wire’ interface is a CAN bus interface for our autonomous driving partners, which enables them to control our vehicle either remotely or in a self-driving manner.

The Assignment

The core of the assignment is to develop an End of Line (EoL) test device for our pre-delivery inspection department. The goal is to have a device which fully automatically tests the ‘Drive By Wire’ interface. The device should be plug and play for our vehicles.

Assignments topics

  • HMI development
  • Test application development in e.g. C++ / Codesys
  • Test sequence design
  • CAN communication between test device and vehicle
  • Automatic test report creation and archiving

While performing your assignment you will be part of the system & software engineering team, therefore the application will be developed using agile/scrum methods, using our tool suite.

Furthermore, you are:

  • Ambitious, motivated and independent
  • Focussed on problem solving, with good analytical skills
