Create new innovative prototype software tools that support embedded control design.

At Flanders Make, we create new methods and intelligent software to support industrial designers of leading automotive and machine building companies in Flanders. New methods are needed to automate data handling in complex design processes, more specifically:

  • to automatically generate design concepts;
  • to optimise both control algorithm and embedded platform so as to enable embedded platform engineers to perform a trade-off analysis.

 

Develop & validate advanced software technology

As an expert in embedded and real-time machine software, you will:

  • Work in a software research team to develop the above-described advanced software technology (frameworks) for the design of controllers for industrial concepts (compressors, active shock absorbers, weaving looms…);
  • Take the lead in the validation of developed software technology and explain to the team the criteria for its successful implementation.

More concretely, you will:

  • Set up the characterisation of the embedded software and hardware (objectives, memory and other constraints, execution times, buses…);
  • Be actively involved from conceptual idea generation up to the implementation on a working demonstrator;
  • Try to prevent possible implementation problems, as early as possible in the research process;
  • Validate the new advanced software framework
    • Design, develop and, when ready, test key software components;
    • Run the code on ECU/TCU control units;
    • Translate the software model (model-based design algorithms) into a code (C++) wherever needed.

Benefits

Offer

  • Flanders Make gives you the opportunity to develop yourself in the network of top industry and universities and research institutes;
  • An open-minded, flexible and challenging working environment;
  • A warm atmosphere and top colleagues;
  • An attractive salary with fringe benefits.
