Software Team Leader-(220003VH)

Valeo Detection Systems is a new company focused solely on LIDAR technology development and manufacturing. Valeo SCALA lidar is the first and still the only mass-produced automotive smart laser scanner on the market. It is used by carmakers for their most advanced models such as the Mercedes S-Class, Audi A8 or Honda Legend. We develop hardware, software, optics, mechanical construction, execute system testing and industrialization of this product.

LIDAR function is basically a SW-System feature of our smart sensor which our customers are paying for – such as the ability to recognize and track objects around your car or recognize lane markings. We use tools like MATLAB and Python to prototype and develop our algorithms and methods and we later implement them into our smart sensor firmware using C/C++. Since our sensor feeds data to self-driving systems, functional safety and reliability are big topics for us.
