Posted on oktober 9, 2018oktober 11, 2018 by romy reijnders


Would you like to work at one of the most innovative and global oriented automotive research companies in the world? At this moment we are expanding the system/control engineering capacity of our client TNO in Helmond.

TNO is recognized by OEMs and TIERs all over the world as a valuable knowledge partner with unique expertise, tools and facilities. The activities within the research department Integrated Vehicle Safety focus on improving the functional safety of vehicles and prevent human fatalities and severe injuries by developing integrated safety solutions that are robust and reliable under all circumstances.


As a Robotic System/Software specialist you will be responsible for the further development of our world modelling and motion planning algorithms. Example fields are multi-sensor fusion, track-to-track fusion, localization, SLAM, motion planning, estimation & prediction. You will be responsible to develop new algorithms/solutions for these challenges. Furthermore, you will also be responsible, together with experts of the other relevant fields, to combine this with existing solutions into a single result, typically a middleware supported embedded system (e.g. carlab with multiple (automotive) computers + ROS middleware).

Good communication and cooperation (in teams) skills are needed for the interaction with all disciplines within the department (e.g. control, prediction, testing, functional & operational safety, system engineering) is important due to the integrated approach within projects. Within these projects a pro-active attitude is appreciated. Typical projects you will work in are:

1) business to business projects where you have a direct interaction with the customer and concrete tangible goals

2) European projects in which there is more focus on the research and technology development
