AVL Software and Functions GmbH is the center of competence for Powertrain Software- and Function Development, as well as Electronics and Systems integration. Our fields of activity include highly innovative projects in the area of Combustion Engines, E-Mobility and ADAS / AD. Our vision “Why not – move different!” is challenging us to develop solutions for the future of mobility.


We are looking for you:


Expert Sensor Simulation (m/f/d)

for our new location Roding

Our new location for ADAS / AD Sensortesting is located in Roding. Based on latest scientific knowhow and with the highest quality standards we want to offer our customers (mainly OEM and Tier 1) sensor testing capabilities in reproduceable environmental conditions (rain, mist, backlight) and various driving scenarios. For building-up and running our Sensortest laboratory at our newly founded AVL location in Roding we are looking for an Expert in ADAS / AD Sensortesting.


Virtual parameter variation for sensor validation and homologation is one of the core enablers for bringing future autonomous vehicles on the road. Based on the measurement results in our indoor sensor lab in Roding we develop high-fidelity sensor models for radar, camera and lidar, which realistically represent sensor performance during adverse weather conditions such as rain, fog and counter-light. For further development of our virtual environment in Unreal Engine / CARLA we are looking for an expert in sensor simulation.





•    Develop high-fidelity sensor models for radar, camera and lidar with a specific focus on performance in adverse weather conditions using Unreal Engine / CARLA
•    Improve weather simulation in our virtual environment in Unreal Engine / CARLA
•    Define the requested physical experiments for sensor parameterization together with our sensor testing experts in Roding. 
•    Develop a virtual twin of our Sensor lab in Roding which controls the physical operation in the test field 
•    Develop KPIs for evaluating sensor efficiency in adverse environmental conditions
•    Present the measurement results to our customers





•    Bachelor or Master degree in electrical / mechanical engineering, Physics or similar area
•    Profound knowledge in ADAS / AD sensor technologies mainly camera, radar and lidar
•    > 3 years experience in sensor simulation 
•    Technical proficiency in Unreal Engine / CARLA, VTD and Matlab or Python 
•    Know-how in system design and integration (combining HW and SW)
•    Team player with a passionate, independent and pro-active working style
•    Fluent in speaking and writing English and German languages
•    Personality counts more than anything!




  • Be part of our pioneering work– together with our customers we shape the future of mobility! 
  • International and innovative collaboration rings a bell? That’s how we work.
  • Our technical and personal onboarding concept will help you to hop on easily.
  • We support lifelong learning: educate yourself, apply your knowledge and get creative.
  • Mobile working, flex-time and modern workplaces are part of our DNA.
  • We are deeply rooted in our values: respectful communication, care, openness, passion and trust
