Internship BAC+4/5 R&D Characterisation of vehicle's trajectories H/F

Auto req ID


Group Trucks Technology
Position Description

The internship will be done in the System Simulation team of Volvo Group which acts as expertise in system simulation and feature optimization/evaluation for new vehicle concepts.
In order to develop and evaluate optimization strategies for vehicle driving, it is needed to model parameters influencing vehicle driving: (i) static environment of the vehicle (infrastructure, type of lane, slope…) and (ii) dynamic environment (traffic lights, other vehicles…).
Volvo Group has developed powerful tools for simulation of vehicles kinematic. These models are based on Matlab/Simulink and allow taking into account static environment of a vehicle using a database of cycles representing several situations that can be encountered by the vehicle. Works are ongoing to make our models able to take into account dynamic parameters of the environment.
In this context, measurements have been done (speed, interdistance, GPS data…) to characterize vehicle behaviour in a dynamic environment. The main objectives of the internship will be:
- define statistic indicators tocharacterisevehicle trajectories (urban, trunk roads, motorways…)
- develop automatic methods tocharacterisevehicle trajectories using these indicators
- define methods tocharacterisethe vehicle which precedes the studied vehicle (from its trajectory)
BAC+4/5, engineering school or Master
Knowledge in Statistics needed.
Experience in road traffic model is desirable.
Curious and dynamic, your capacity for analysis and synthesis are great advantages to succeed in this mission.
