Solve the case and win a fully paid mind-blowing experience!
Are you a tech-driven professional who loves a good challenge? Then join our competition by picking a technology case in your field of expertise and sending us your solution. The best participants win a fully paid mind-blowing experience to Europe’s top technology region. During a six-day activity-packed program you will visit world-leading companies, discover cutting-edge technologies that match your interest and get to know Brainport Eindhoven and Brabant region, the Netherlands. This is where tech magic happens and this is your chance to dive right in.
Why you should join the Tech Xperience:
- You get to know the key engineers of NXP
- Unique opportunity to spot the latest new developments in Autonomous driving software
- Great chance to discover other technologies or technology-related topics that have your interest such as advanced materials, additive manufacturing, cleanliness, autonomous driving and more.
P.S. You will have finished the case within no time. It doesn’t have to be a thesis. It only takes you a couple of Netflix series.
NXP Semiconductors developed a prototype for Autonomous Driving based on its Automotive chipsets. This prototype is called Bluebox and contains several (complementary) processors.
The candidate has to study the Autoware software for Autonomous Driving and create a hardware/software mapping of this stack onto the different elements of the Bluebox. The outcome of this exercise is a system architecture diagram and a motivation of the mapping. An additional optional challenge is to write a program based on Robot Operating System, which enforces vehicle safety if a software component crashes.
Recommended background and tools
- Computer science and/or electrical engineering MSc
- No equipment, only PC with internet access
