Description company:

DAF Trucks is a Dutch truck manufacturing company and a division of Paccar. Its headquarters and main plant are in Eindhoven. Cabs and axle assemblies are produced at its Westerlo plant in Belgium. Some of the truck models sold with the DAF brand are designed and built by Leyland Trucks at its Leyland plant in England.

Description department:

Within PACCAR, the DAF Embedded Engineering department is the competence center for development of embedded systems. These systems control the engine, the exhaust gas cleaning system and various cabin and chassis systems.  The Embedded Engineering (EE) department is divided in three groups: Platform Development, Verification and Support, Architecture. The candidate will be working in the Verification and Support (V&S) group.

The Hardware in the Loop (HIL) team within V&S  is responsible for the development and maintenance of the software test environment within the EE department. The test environment consists of a hardware part (the electrics and electronics of the simulator), a modelling part (the engine, aftertreatment and vehicle simulation models) and a software part (the test-automation framework). This test-environment is dSpace based and consists of multiple full-size simulators and multiple mid-size simulators. The simulation models are built in Simulink using base models from a supplier. The test-automation framework is written in Python and uses APIs of several components to combine them to one framework the (test) engineers use.
