"Cutting-edge research requires excellent minds – particularly more females – at all levels. Launch your mission with us and send in your application now!" Prof. Pascale Ehrenfreund - Chair of the DLR Executive Board

At the DLR Institute of Transportation Systems (TS), Dominion is the basis middleware for numerous testing facilities, such as automotive laboratories, test vehicles, AIM and a number of railway laboratories. Dominion enables the fast data-exchange between applications and services in real time, both locally on a computer and distributed within a network. One application focus lies in vehicle automation and simulation, where data from sensors/actuators (e.g. steering angle, accelerator-pedal position, etc.) through environment detection and traffic simulation and on to driver-condition recognition (ECG, EEG, facial recognition) are exchanged with high proficiency. Through automatic code generation in Dominion, the application developer is provided with an application framework for differing development environments and operating systems (Windows, Linux, Raspbian), in which all the necessary input and output data are already available.

Within the scope of your master/bachelor thesis/internship, you will be involved in the further development of our Dominion middleware. Through your investigative spirit and your sound knowledge of software development in C++ and Qt, you will provide a valuable contribution towards the improvement of this software framework for current and future research questions in this field.

Dominion includes a graphical tool which can display live data transmitted via the middleware. Within the scope of this work, new possibilities for the graphical processing and representation of live data are to be developed.

Your tasks can include:

  • elicitation of the requirements for the representation of live data
  • designing of graphic display options which meet the requirements
  • implementation of the new representation possibilities in C++ with Qt

Your qualifications:

  • ability to work independently
  • knowledge of C++ and the graphic toolkit Qt

Your benefits:

Look forward to a fulfilling job with an employer who appreciates your commitment and supports your personal and professional development. Our unique infrastructure offers you a working environment in which you have unparalled scope to develop your creative ideas and accomplish your professional objectives. Our human resources policy places great value on a healthy family and work-life-balance as well as equal opportunities for persons of all genders (m/f/non-binary). Individuals with disabilities will be given preferential consideration in the event their qualifications are equivalent to those of other candidates.
