What to expect


The Stability Control Systems department is primarily responsible for developing and delivering stability functions such as Dynamic Stability Control, Torque Vectoring by Braking, Traction Control, etc.  The work covers all aspects of the controller design from requirements writing to testing and developing to a tuneable condition as well as tuning and calibration to meet vehicle attribute targets.  The core group of delivery engineers for these functions are grouped together in one team to create a flexible workforce and to maximise knowledge transfer between them


The System Engineer works with the Stability Architect covering the inputs, outputs and it’s architecture.  The overall requirements are delivered for each programme utilising SiL, HiL and vehicle tests where required.  Included in this, is conducting Functional Safety case analysis and cascading requirements to relevant owners and also assisting with managing key customer interfaces such as the DSC button and HMI.  The architecture team supports the System Owner to ensure they can achieve their cascaded requirements.  Strategically, the System Engineer for the SCS Architecture supports the dissemination of customer requirements to determine the architecture that is required to deliver them and therefore what the requirements of the Stability Control System are.
