You develop and integrate embedded software codes and explore technology breakthroughs for autonomous driving functions.

At Flanders Make, we develop new technologies and new applications for intelligent robots, autonomous vehicles, interconnected machines and human-centred production sites. That's how we make sure our manufacturing companies remain leading within their market. By bringing together knowledge, expertise and competences from companies, universities and other knowledge institutions, we help companies to innovate better and faster.


In the domain of autonomous systems, we work together with research teams of mechatronic research engineers, software architects & engineers, test engineers, etc., taking up complex challenges in vehicle localisation, path planning, detection & classification of obstacles, data exchange with other vehicles and the environment... As a team, we integrate new intelligent software components for prototype autonomous vehicles, where you take the lead in their real-time implementation.

As an Embedded Software Research Engineer Autonomous Driving, you will:

  • Design, develop, prototype, test and verify embedded software code (C++);

  • Develop and use necessary software for testing, debugging and verifying designs;

  • Test the software on prototypes of autonomous vehicles.

This video shows how at Flanders Make technology is being developed for autonomous vehicles, creating and improving autonomous and intelligent options and exploring new possibilities with complex functions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z6MM2saI_j0
