Thesis: Develop HIL testbench for autonomous ground drones

Title: 

Develop HIL testbench for autonomous ground drones and simulate the drone in software

Description of the thesis proposal:

HIL or Hardware-in-the-loop can help tremendously when developing software for embedded systems. You can for instance do software integration tests on a HIL-bench to test a car’s brake system without the car being present or assembled for that matter.

But communicating the concepts and advantages of a HIL-bench is hard without an actual thing to do the demonstrations, teaching, and actual testing on.

This thesis will focus on developing a HIL bench that emulates the hardware components, requirements, and features of an autonomous indoor ground-based drone.

The thesis will also explore the possibilities of using software simulated signals and environments to complement- and allow for the software development of an autonomous drone while the physical drone is not yet ready.

An overview of the thesis work would be:

  • From requirements, develop an embedded multi system HIL bench to afford software development on vehicles that are not yet built
  • Through simulation software emulate signals and feed these signals into the HIL bench
  • Have the HIL bench respond to input from the simulation
  • Have the outputs from the HIL bench actuate the simulated model.

For a successful thesis work, we believe that the applicants should have:

  • An understanding of relevant software and hardware components
  • Some experience from working with both hardware and software
  • Experience with unreal engine 4, Carla, ROS, embedded programming, or game development.

      What we offer:

      Experience working life at a global company that develops tomorrow’s technology, through our student collaboration scheme.

      At Syntronic, we acknowledge that most great achievements start with a university degree and a dream. Although our team of 1500+ highly qualified experts are active on three continents, the first chapter of our story was written by a young graduate student with a vision.

      At Syntronic, we give you as a student the opportunity to produce your degree project in collaboration with us. The offer adds a real-life element to your education. You will meet experts in your future field of work and experience the technology industry first-hand.

      Application:

      We look forward to receiving your resume and, preferably, a personal letter in which you explain why want to write your master’s thesis with Syntronic.

      We screen and evaluate applications on an ongoing basis.
