Prescan Sensor model verification and validation engineer

Job Description

Prescan is a mature and wide-spread simulation platform for virtual development and validation of active safety and (Highly) Automated Driving systems. Prescan offers high-fidelity physics-based simulation models of all sensors relevant for automated driving (such as camera, radar, LIDAR, infrared, ultrasonic and DSRC). The newest sensor suite, which is currently under development, is a physics based simulation using ray tracing. To strengthen the team, Siemens Industry Software and Services has an immediate opening for a Sensor model verification and validation engineer who will have the following responsibilities:

  • Verifying, validating and benchmarking the physical models used in the physics-based sensor simulations, e.g. does the camera model correctly include all physics to simulate reflection, distortion, lens imperfections, etc..
  • Reporting and interpreting measured sensor results (imaging, material measurements) from real world experiments to improve the simulations.
  • Work closely with the team for further improvement of the simulation framework and the models.
  • Improving test variability for different scenarios.
  • Writing requirements documents

Required Qualifications:

  • Education level: PhD or MSc, Technical Informatics, Physics, Electrical Engineering.
  • Previous experience with verification and validation of simulations
  • Good knowledge of EM radiation, especially visible light, (near) infrared and/or radio waves
  • Several years of experience in a verification/validation function

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Knowledge of sensors (camera, lidar, radar, etc) and the underlying physics
  • Knowledge of computer graphics
  • Knowledge of materials used in sensor simulations
  • Knowledge of software development, especially C++, MATLAB, Python
  • Knowledge of MATLAB Simulink


We are looking for a strong team player with an analytical mindset, willing to pick up new challenges, someone who is pragmatic, inspiring, result oriented and inventive regarding complex problems.
