Internship within Robotic Control Software: Analysis and Design
Airbus Defence and Space Bremen (ex Astrium ST)
Airbus is a global leader in aeronautics, space and related services. In 2017, it generated revenues of € 67 billion and employed a workforce of around 130,000. Airbus offers the most comprehensive range of passenger airliners from 100 to more than 600 seats. Airbus is also a European leader providing tanker, combat, transport and mission aircraft, as well as Europe's number one space enterprise and the world's second largest space business. In helicopters, Airbus provides the most efficient civil and military rotorcraft solutions worldwide.
Our people work with passion and determination to make the world a more connected, safer and smarter place. Taking pride in our work, we draw on each other's expertise and experience to achieve excellence. Our diversity and teamwork culture propel us to accomplish the extraordinary - on the ground, in the sky and in space.
Description of the job

Airbus Defence and Space GmbH at its Bremen site focuses mainly on projects and systems located in a planetary orbit or on the planetary surface for exploration. These systems are typically characterized by only remote accessibility, a high-degree of autonomy, use of emerging technologies combined with the constrained of space-qualified hardware.
One key element of most systems is a robotic subsystem. This can be a manipulator, a pan-tilt-unit, a rover or any other mechatronic system that provides intelligent services and information by interacting with the environment through the use of sensors and actuators.
In the Space Robotics and Automation Lab (SRAL) here in Bremen, we develop part of those systems, e.g. mechanisms, algorithms, software structures, or the systems as a whole.
For a new communication architecture within our laboratory setup and as a preparation for future re-use in on-board systems, we're developing a new, lean core component the provides the essential services, etc. communication based on a new framework, logging, configuration, etc.
