Master Thesis Project within Sensor Fusion at Active Safety and Autonomous Drive!
Looking for a master piece for your Master Thesis project? We are looking for an enthusiastic student to our project “Sensor utility monitoring”. Sounds interesting? Keep reading!

About the project

In order to ensure safe manoeuvres in automated vehicles, vehicle control systems are dependent on trustworthy data from the vehicle’s sensors. Diagnostic information is already utilized for trouble-shooting purposes to detect potential errors, for instance loss of power or sensor degradation. But by studying and identifying abnormal behaviours of each sensor, the sensor status can be reported alongside with diagnostic information in order to trust the sensor output with high confidence.
The scope of the thesis work is to define a sensor monitoring software module that monitors sensor input and output in order to report potential faults to the software module that fuses the information from all sensors, so called sensor fusion.
The objective of the thesis work is to identify system requirements for the sensor monitoring module and develop the software interface from each sensor. The final result shall be to demonstrate the sensor monitoring output based on input from vehicle sensors, either in a test vehicle or on a test bench.
