Over the last 1.5 years we’ve developed and built several maturity levels and a lot of prototypes and we will now develop and implement a series product. In the project we cover everything from Electronics, Robotics, Navigation, Hardware, and intelligent fleet management. Therefore, we`re looking for you as a Software Engineer to join the Robotics Team.
