Work as a Vehicle Communication Network Specialist with one of the UK's most iconic brands. |
CAN communication tools
Requirements specification for Signals, Nodes, Functions. Communication Design (signal packing, Frame Identifier assignment, gateway routing).
Measure Vehicle bus loading/bandwidth. Initialisation time of all ECU’s and messages. End to End latency. Evaluate metrics tools and Simulation model development. Physical layer design specification and testing.
Key Responsibilities & Tasks
1. Requirement identification of features by reading the Feature/ECU Specifications. Early identification of Faults and design flaws of Communication design level before it goes in to implementation.
2. Measure and Analyse vehicle network architecture before it goes to Validation and readiness of vehicle, which will reduce the cost and Time of redesign and testing of architecture.
3. Measure Bus Load and Latency for Vehicle with and without new feature for all Frames using Analysis Tools. Measuring the BUS load and Latency of each frame.
4. Vehicle Level serial data communication design and analysis
Author Requirements specification for Signals, Nodes, and Functions.
Communication Design (signal packing, Frame Identifier assignment, gateway routing)
Implications of adding carry over ECU’s.
Support interfacing to other network (lin nodes).
Use Volcano Network Architect (VNA). Or Mentor graphics VSA.
Physical layer design specification and testing.
The position will be based out of AML Gaydon. The working hours are 39 hrs 7.30 to 4.30 Mon to Thurs and 7.30 to 12.30 on Friday.
