      My Contribution to the Future of Driving

      Hello, my name is Olga and I’m working as a Test and Validation Lead Engineer on the development of the highway pilot solutions. This is where cars completely take over the driving task on motorways become reality. I am really proud to be able to make a contribution to bring automated driving onto the road.

      The ideas behind are making travelling on motorways safer and more comfortable. From my point of view, it makes everyday life much more relaxed. A longer trip to the workplace, for example, is no longer so bad because you can use the commuting time for other tasks. Nevertheless, I’m not dependent on public transport. Even longer journeys and heavy traffic, for example during holidays, are less stressful.

      But what  does my job look like in concrete terms? I mainly take care of organisational matters, from virtual tests and simulations to the final test in the vehicle. My typical day is therefore usually full of meetings and I have to coordinate with a lot of people. In addition, there is a constant review and agile adaptation of the current project status and overall schedule. I take care of the reporting of verification and validation results and the related issue. I also need to be able to react very flexibly to changes and inform the people affected. And, last-but-not-least, I make sure that the right people talk to each other.
