The Advanced Technologies and Autonomy team is responsible for delivering highly available, high quality systems to enable NIO's Autonomous driving vehicles. Our mission is to provide the next generation of hardware, software and algorithmic solutions. This includes but not limited to sensing, compute, storage as well as vehicle controls and safety system compute.
What the team works on:
Autonomy hardware and software architecture
Design, development, integration, and test of autonomous compute and sensing hardware
Mass storage and Event Data Recorders
Vehicle and Safety Controller HW and related functions
Environment and Sensor modeling and simulation
Autonomy Al and Controls
Autonomy R&D Tools
Autonomy compute and sensing HW and SW redundancy
Sensing, GPS and IMU hardware, software, and integration
Autonomy compute communication (sensing, compute, and controller inter-ECU communication)
The hardware group is responsible for the concept, design, and refinement of all hardware associated with autonomous driving. The team will develop the system and follow through during launch. You will collaborate in a team with other engineers and designers to develop an autonomous driven car that delights the consumer.
Lead the development of unique, innovative and advanced engineering concepts and components designs - continuing these through release and launch support.Work with suppliers to develop component/sub-system to meet weight, cost, durability, and performance targets.Hands-on integration and collaboration with disciplines such as software, automation, electrical, mechanical, signal integrity, and FPGA design.Collaborate with other engineering groups, suppliers, and leadership team to meet engineering deliverables within tight time constraints.Communicate complex optical hardware requirements to non-experts both internally and to industry-facing stakeholders.Collaborate with other engineering groups, suppliers, and leadership team to meet engineering deliverables within tight time constraints.Ensure compliance of the system and component designs with all vehicle/component requirements, quality objectives, program milestones, performance, cost, weight & safety.Flexibility and adaptability in a fast-paced and dynamic work environment.Some travel domestically and/or internationally.
