Functieomschrijving SENIOR MECHATRONIC ENGINEER FOR INTELLIGENT MACHINES AND VEHICLES RESEARCH

You set up research projects with top companies and investigate how to increase the intelligence of their products (machines/vehicles).
For companies that manufacture smart and highly automated machines and vehicles, we conduct technological research to strengthen the companies’ product and process innovation. Our researchers help companies in making high-performance, flexible and autonomous machines and vehicles by

  • creating simulation models of the machine’s/vehicle’s behaviour;
  • using these models for analyzing the system’s performance, optimizing the design configuration and parameters;
  • building prototypes of these machines and vehicles;
  • developing control algorithms and implementing these algorithms into controller software validating the developed (components in) machines and vehicles and their controllers in real-life test conditions.

LEAD INDUSTRY DRIVEN RESEARCH PROJECTS
As an expert in machine and vehicle modelling, control and simulation, you:

  • Take the technical lead of a research team, combining expertise in dynamics, control and model based mechatronic system engineering;
  • Are a technological sparring partner for the companies;
  • Work together with account managers and research program leaders, understanding company needs and setting research goals.

More concretely, you:

  • Define the technological challenges and needs before the project starts. With active listening techniques you reveal the underlying technological problem of the company;
  • Set realistic project goals and timings;
  • Perform research close to your own expertise and lead the project execution for the team;
  • Regularly discuss the technological ambitions and results with the company stakeholders;
  • Actively trace and present industrial challenges and research opportunities. You help others with your expertise in writing project proposals.
