General Motors Israel (Herzliya)  takes a significant part in shaping the future of autonomous vehicles (AV) by developing and implementing cutting edge technologies.

Simulation is at the heart of AV development, testing, and validation.

The ability to simulate complex use-cases, running multiple simulations at scale, and automating system level tests in the development process are all critical throughout the AV product lifecycle.

The Simulation Group develops, integrates and deploys simulation capabilities, interfacing with the AV SW stack, for both Software and Hardware-in-the-loop setups (SiL, HiL).

  • Develop both object-level and sensory-level simulation infrastructure interfacing different simulation engines (object level and sensory-level (Graphical)) with the AV stack in Linux environment. 
  • Develop noise models for sensors and the different AV components. 
  • Write clean, maintainable, and testable code, inspiring others to do the same. 
  • Advocate for best engineering practices within the team. 
  • Gain extensive knowledge in the  AV stack.   
  • Contribute to a high scale, fast-paced complex product. 
  • Own and lead technical aspects of every project you are a part of.
