Job Description

We are looking for highly motivated people to build the road ahead and invent solutions to challenges never met before. Creativity and perseverance is your attitude? We are looking for you.

  • Duration: 6 months (starting from March 2021)
  • Location: Toulouse, France
  • Department: R&D - Navigation
  • Internship subject: Define, implement and test a trailers trajectory estimation and planning
  • Internship tutor: Alexandre Boeuf, R&D Engineer

EasyMile has already developed autonomous solutions for trailer towing (e.g. the TractEasy solution). Given a known motion of the tractor, we aim at improving our estimation of the induced trajectories of the trailers. The goal of this internship is to define and implement a modeling protocol of the tractor/trailers system that will allow accurate predictions of the trajectories of the trailers through numerical integration.

As a first step, the studied system will consist in only a single trailer with a forward-only driving tractor, keeping in mind that the proposed modeling protocol should possibly be generalizable to any tractor/trailers system. The main steps involved in this work are therefore to:

  • define an experimental protocol to measure ground truth data on an EasyMile vehicle,
  • apply this protocol on site during a data acquisition campaign,
  • model the system using acquired data (this will involve a bibliographic study of the state of the art),
  • develop a numerical integration tool,
  • and finally use it to validate the model on experimental data

Preferred Experience

There is no typical profile at EasyMile, we all come from different backgrounds and that is what makes us strong! Don't hesitate to apply if you are motivated and interested by innovative transportation and technologies.

We are looking for:

  • Final year internship
  • Modelling - math calculus - Kinematics - model identification - Working autonomously on site
  • Python
  • C++

Recruitment Process

  • 30 minutes call with a recruitment officer
