Modern vehicles encompass an incredibly complex and diverse set of disciplines. The automotive electronics engineer has to bring together real-time software, safety critical constraints, sensor electronics, human factors, legislation and ethics into a working package that satisfies multiple stakeholders.
Car manufacturers are using advanced onboard electronics and electromechanical components within sophisticated engine and safety controls as well as in the design of navigation, audio systems and LED lighting.
Train operators are demanding more from their rolling stock in terms of reliability, efficiency and speed. As a result, automotive electronics engineers must design products that will survive in harsh operating conditions, such as electrically-noisy environments and where there are significant swings in humidity and temperature. In addition, products must demonstrate relatively long product life-cycles, meet high safety and reliability standards along with stringent weight restrictions due to the demand for reduced fuel consumption.
Our projects are usually multidisciplinary, and can include electronics and/or software design, testing, and simulation. High voltage and intelligent systems are also specialties.
