Former Driver Assist Technology Intern at Ford Motor Company
about 3 years ago
Driver Assist Technology interns help design and test the latest automotive technology for autonomous functionality and active safety. Most modern cars have a huge variety of safety features that are tested to IIHS, NHTSA, and other safety standards. Interns could do anything relating to the design and test of these systems. Some examples might be designing and running repeatable autonomous vehicle tests to test a new safety feature. Interns could also be contributing to the programming or simulation of these systems. Some mechanical applications could be creating mechanical test equipment or improving sensor locations and positions.
