This position reports to the Research Engineering group. The position is responsible for the investigation and development of technologies in vision management, light management, material science, electronics, electronical connectivity and communication, energy management, and technology deployment used in applications for future Clarience Technologies/Truck-Lite telematics, heavy-duty signal, and forward lighting products.
Specific research and development projects include the investigation of technology and application(s) that involve communication devices (IIoT) used in transportation telematics including the development of devices that can sense variable data such as temperature, pressure, volume, time, and displacement and send the data back using an RF (IEEE 802.15.4), Bluetooth 5.0, NFC, RS 232/485, CANBus (SAE J1969) or RFID to a collecting device. The position supports the development of "statements of work" that are used to define the requirements of the application for internal and/or third-party contractor investigation.
-Collaborates with the firmware, thermal, optical, and mechanical engineers as electrical hardware is being designed.
-Incorporates considerations for data and messaging, thermal and optical requirements, mechanical specifications, safety concerns, and fleet operational inefficiencies in the electrical designs.
-Provide advisory and oversight support for work performed by third parties.
-Develops project statements/technology definitions for a specific application for device revisions or for new application technology.
-Works with program/project manager for a clear definition of the application and to match the application and technology for the most cost-effective solution(s).
-Presents 'proof of concepts’ designs and DFMEA identifying the potential failure modes.
-Develops stress and validation testing plans for the device hardware including in the form of a DVP&R.
-Bachelor's degree in Electrical/ Computer Engineering or related field.

-0 to 3 years of experience in software design preferred.
-0 to 3 years of experience in circuit design development.
-CADD-Altium related circuit and schematic design.
-Troubleshooting of existing products and designs.
-Radio Frequency (IEEE 802.15.4) CANbus, LIN Bus, UART, SPI, I2C.
-Wireless electronic device experience. Bluetooth/BLE, WI-FI, RF.
-Manufacturing printed circuit board experience.
-Understand the functionality of the system to provide better hardware abstraction layers.
-Maintains up-to-date job knowledge by way of attendance at seminars, visits to shops and equipment builders, trade journals, and personal study time.
-System-level integration experience.
-(Design for cost, test, manufacturing) experience.
-Experience reading electrical schematics.
-Experience with microcontroller at an embedded level programing. Familiarity with C, C++, Python, and/or Java Script.
-Experience with hardware lab equipment such as oscilloscope digital scope and logic analyzer.
-Technical document writing experience using Visio, Word, Excel, and/or PowerPoint.
