Contract Type


  • Full-stack development spanning low-level embedded OS kernels and high-level desktop applications.
  • Design, prototype and profile software architectures of safe automated driving on automotive SoCs.
  • Integrate 3rd party software, such as AD simulators, hypervisors, operating systems, middleware and communication stacks, monitoring software.
  • Develop software components supporting system-level safety goals.


The Systems Innovations department builds innovative automotive system prototypes. In particular, the “Roly-poly” project researches and builds prototypes of safety mechanisms for automated driving (AD). Functional Safety ( requires implementation of safety measures in automotive systems to control runtime failures and fault-free hazardous situations. Your main goals will be to design, integrate, develop and maintain such safety mechanisms on automotive-grade SoCs, such as the company's BlueBox. Furthermore, the technical context of the project involves automated driving (test) vehicles, simulators and software stacks based on middleware software and hypervisors. There are several applicable platforms for automated driving such as Autoware ( and Apollo ( Furthermore, the relevant middleware frameworks include the Data Distribution Service (DDS) and Robot Operating System (ROS). Hypervisors, such as Xen and COQOS, are used to isolate safety-critical software stacks.
