Ford's Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) team creates innovative solutions to make the driving experience safer, easier, and more enjoyable for our customers. The new ADAS feature development team designs and develops next generation automated features from the early concept development to production launch. We are seeking professionals with a passion for bringing innovative ideas to life who can supply to our efforts in the development of new features, sensors, ECUs, models, and software. This position focuses on model-based software development and simulation for advanced parking features. What you'll be able to do:

  • Design, develop, and deliver the feature Simulink model to meet feature level requirements and integrate within the production embedded software environment.
  • Work with a team of system, hardware, software and controls engineers to deliver concept and production level software.
  • Develop and complete test cases for MIL/SIL verification of feature model function and evaluate feature model behavior and impact on customer experience.
  • Closely coordinate with feature development engineers to support execution of design verification plans to ensure proper feature-level performance.
  • Support data resim and bench testing of feature model and algorithms to assess & improve performance of features.
  • Ensure the feature model is accurately delivered to meet software delivery & program timing.
  • Work with software team to integrate and autocode feature model for production software.
  • Support the validation of interfacing system/function models with the feature model.
  • Work with tool developers to integrate feature model in larger co-simulation and ECU simulation environments.
  • Work with the feature owner, hardware in the loop, simulation, and vehicle test teams to establish simulation procedures to reduce dependency on vehicle level testing.
