Internship Assignment - Diagnostic Handheld

Location: Benschop

The System & software engineering department is looking for a student to develop a handheld diagnostic device for our vehicles. At the moment a service engineer needs to be in the cabin to activate service/calibration routines and read out the values. To improve this process our service engineering department requested us to develop a handheld diagnostic device.

The Assignment

The purpose of the assignment is to develop a solution for our service engineers, which enables them to perform diagnostic routines without using the vehicle display.

Assignments topics

  • Development of a diagnostics application in C++
  • Selection of hardware for the handheld device
  • Communication between the handheld device and the vehicle
  • Safety of the service engineer and the surrounding

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