Job Description:

For new powertrain systems there is a lag of realistic field data. Our approach is to generate virtual load data where one of the core components is velocity simulation on virtual roads. The generated velocity time series depend on many external factors such as road properties, driver behavior and vehicle model. The parameters describing these external factors are often not exactly known and must be estimated or they are inherently random. To consider these influences in the simulations they must be described by statistical models. Large field data sets including traffic, map and telemetry data form the basis for these models.

  • During your assignment you will work with a velocity simulation tool.
    You will analyze large field data sets to better understand the stochastic nature of driving.
  • Furthermore, you will integrate your findings into the velocity simulation to generate more reliable driving profiles.
  • Last but not least, you will work in an agile and diverse research team.


  • Education: Master studies in the field of Engineering, Mathematics, Physics or Computer Science
  • Personality and Working Practice: highly motivated and flexible team player
  • Experience and Knowledge: Python programming, knowledge of statistical models is a plus
  • Languages: fluent in German and English

Additional Information:
Start: according to prior agreement
Duration: 6 months
