Role Overview:

Highly autonomous driving is one of the key research-fields for future vehicle generations. Thanks to enhanced automation, the driver can be further relieved from the driving task to achieve a considerable gain in comfort and safety. 

One of the key features for highly autonomous driving is a complete understanding of the vehicle environment in traffic flow. The environmental detection is primary based on sensors such as radar or camera. Another important role in this constellation is a digital and highly accurate road map.

Assistance systems for highly autonomous driving, require a digital road map that is significantly more comprehensive, accurate, safer and up-to-date than the map previously known in navigation systems.

The Maps and Navigation Data Team is looking for a passionate and versatile engineer in the serial development of telematics, to shape the future of digital and highly accurate map.
