Master Thesis Electronics (m/f/d) – LiDAR End-of-Line Test Setup


Your mission

You are in the final stages of your Master’s degree and are now looking for a challenging Master thesis to crown your graduation? You also have convincing experience in PCB design and want to drive innovation? Then you should take a closer look at this position! Blickfeld offers you up-close insights within a fast-growing start-up company. As a leading manufacturer for LiDAR sensors, we not only want to cover our customer satisfaction, but we also want to get better day by day. Our best-in-class LiDAR system measures distances by stopping the time it takes a laser pulse to travel from the sensor to an object and back. By steering the laser beam in two dimensions and taking more than 1 million distance measurements per second, a 3D point cloud of the surroundings can be created in real time. With your support, we aim to develop a setup that enables automated end-of-line testing and calibration of the field-of-view LiDAR system to gain more accurate insight into the technical parameters and establish a stable production process. Apply now and be part of our Blickfeld family!

FYI: Unfortunately, we cannot offer compensation for work on these thesis.
