Hands On Detection (II)

Project: June 2021 – November 2021 (6 months)


The HOD system is a capacitive measuring system to detect the drivers touch state at the steering wheel to give input to the car (e.g. for automated accelerating, braking and steering in traffic jams on highways). Its safety goal is not to send defectively a wrong touch state.

Defect analysis and repair

  • Investigation of defects and field returns
  • Remediation of software defects
  • Documentation of changes (requirements, design, code, ticket system)

Project interface

  • Participation in meetings with the customer to clarify defects and implementations
  • Participation in internal meetings to clarify defects and implementations
