Researcher, Warren, MI, General Motors. Research & investigate new & novel software design space exploration for Electronic Controls & Software system architectures & technologies in modern automotive systems (for deployment of challenging new functionalities such as Automated Driving, Collision Avoidance systems, Vehicle Connectivity & On-board Infotainment in psgr vehicles) incldg Nondeterministic Polynomial time (NP) hard algorithms for frame packing for CAN with Flexible Data-Rate (CAN-FD) bus protocol. Identify suitable embedded software architectures for Automated Driving vehicles considering high computational demands & safety &security reqmts, using C/C++ & Python languages, & IBM CPLEX, Excel Solver, MATLAB, Simulink & AUTOSAR tools. Conduct basic research studies assessing new design paradigms to hand’s-on activities implementing experimental solutions in lab benches &prototype vehicles. Also include collaborations with major universities &automotive suppliers. Consider future transition of dvlpd technologies towards potential production, compatibility with current architectures strategies, optimization process for cost &mass reduction &technology maturity &feasibility for production application in defined timeframe. PhD, Electrical or Computer Engrg. 6 mos exp as Engineer or Graduate Research Assistant, performing research on software design space exploration for modern automotive systems incldg NP hard algorithms for frame packing for CAN with CAN-FD bus protocol.
