Embedded Controls Development Engineer
Farmington, MI 

Summary of the Embedded Controls Development Engineer:
Our client, a developer of next generation electronic brake technologies, is looking for a Embedded Controls Development Engineer to play a key role developing advanced brake systems.  In this position, you’ll develop core motor controls and/or application software for next generation technology.  You’ll work through the full development life-cycle, working primarily in Matlab and Simulink.  This is challenging, exciting new work for a company that offers stability and long-term growth options.


Responsibilities of the Embedded Controls Development Engineer:

  • System Analysis and Documentation
    • Establish baseline system requirements for advanced drive by wire electric brake applications;
    • Manage and establish core work products used for validation of system requirements;
    • Collaborate with the cross-functional engineering team to establish system requirement specifications.
    • Collaborate with the cross-functional engineering team to establish component-level requirements for optimized system architecture and performance;
    • Support system engineering team with the establishment of use and test cases with traceability to system requirement specifications;
    • Collaborate with the system engineering team to ensure requirement traceability throughout the development lifecycle.
    • Participate in team reviews to make sure the development work processes are compliant; generate necessary evidence report for demonstrating the compliances.
  • System Design and Development
    • Based on the system requirement specifications, optimize the system architecture and design to ensure complete requirements coverage.
      • Establish the theoretical system model from first principles using conventional or analytical system dynamics;
      • Work with subsystem/component design engineers to establish necessary system parameter requirements.
      • Develop closed-loop models of advanced brake by wire systems for feedback control and estimation development.
      • Validate the closed-loop system robustness and parameter sensitivity using MiL and RCP bench techniques.
      • Verify the system performance against the system requirements in case of any change from subsystem or component level parameters;
      • Develop system countermeasures as needed in order to achieve project requirements;
    • Request and support specialized equipment development for characterization of electrical and mechanical sub-components of the electro-mechanical assembly under development;
    • Support the system test engineer to execute both System Test and System Integration Test plans as needed.
Qualifications for the Embedded Controls Development Engineer:
  • Master’s degree (PhD a plus) with a concentration in system controls, or mechatronic systems, with 4+ years of related industry experience.
  • Experience modeling closed-loop system dynamics using Matlab/Simulink
  • Strong understanding of coupled electromechanical system dynamics
  • Strong theoretical & numerical modeling capability
  • Experience using system optimization techniques to ensure optimal system design solution
  • Experience in Linear and Non-Linear System Theory and Controls
  • Preferred
    • Familiarity with vehicle ESC and braking systems
    • Experience with PMSM motor control
    • Experience with parameter identification techniques
    • Track record of establishing modern closed-loop control systems
    • CarSim for closed-loop MiL and/or HiL validation
    • Rapid Control Prototyping using dSPACE toolchain and Mathworks Real-Time Workshop
    • Experience developing Matlab GUI for internal toolchain development


Compensation for the Embedded Controls Development Engineer:
Salary Range: $105,000-120,000 depending on qualifications

Type:  Direct-Hire
Travel:  As and when required
Relocation Assistance:  Subject to review
Visa Sponsorship:  H1B transfers only. NO OPT will be considered
