Do you envision shaping the future of automotive technology alongside a global leader in innovation? Join Volvo Cars and contribute to their mission of making people's lives less complicated through sustainable, personal, and safe mobility. We are seeking ambitious M.Sc. students in the tech field for a master’s thesis with Volvo Cars, as well as a spot in our New Minds Academy after graduation.
About Volvo Cars
Volvo Cars is at the forefront of redefining the automotive experience, focusing on Safe Vehicle Automation. We design, develop, test, and maintain virtual verification tools, with a primary emphasis on large-scale cluster simulations. Our commitment to modularity, performance, and usability drives our continuous improvement efforts.
The development of autonomous vehicle starts with the specification of requirements in natural language, which subsequently transforms into software codes in the vehicle. When all are in place then unsupervised autonomous functionality will be delivered to the customer. While these processes are inherently time-intensive, responding to incidents requires rapidity in response. The transition from new needs to the final software code embodies this challenge.
Recent advancements in Generative AI, particularly with Large Language Models (LLM), have showcased their potential in areas such as text creation. However, the extent of their utility in engineering tasks, including requirements specification and software coding, remains underexplored.
This thesis is a feasibility study of employing generative AI for the engineering tasks essential to autonomous driving technology development such as analysis, requirement specification, and code generation. You will explore prompt engineering, fine-tuning, and ultimately evaluate of outcomes.
The master thesis period starts in early January, and will be done in pairs. If you don’t have a master thesis partner, we can pair you up with another candidate, but it’s beneficial if you already have a partner.
