30 hp - Implementation of fault scenarios and diagnosis for driverless vehicles

Publicerad 2020-11-18

Thesis projects are an excellent experience to get closer contact with Scania and build relations for the future. Several of Scania's employees today started their career at Scania with a Thesis project.


Scania is now undergoing a transformation from being a supplier of trucks, buses, and engines to a supplier of complete and sustainable transport solutions

Scania is thriving for technological transformation in the automotive industry, and our vehicles are getting more and more automated, and initiatives of driverless vehicles are seen all over the world. However, today the driver is an important actor for detecting and managing faults on the vehicles, and in a future driverless transportation system, faults need to be monitored and handled remotely.

To understand which reconsiderations will be needed when there is no longer a driver in the vehicle, we want to develop a demonstrator to study the interactions between a vehicle and a control tower. The demonstrator aims to simulate faults and send relevant information to the control tower.

This master thesis project is in collaboration with the Integrated Transport Research Lab (ITRL) at KTH Royal Institute of Technology. At ITRL, existing Lab-platforms will be used to develop the demonstrator.


The project's scope is to develop the existing platforms to enable simulation of fault scenarios and implement communication to the control tower where users can interact and decide actions for the vehicles to perform.

Task description

The student will be responsible for investigating how different fault scenarios can be implemented on the lab-platform to enable a connection between the vehicle and the control tower. The student will also explore the possibilities of performing actions remotely.

Education and skills

We are looking for 1-2 students interested in autonomous vehicles and curious to explore new solutions for future technologies. The project is explorative and in a research environment, which will allow the student to work both with industry and research.

  • The student should be in his/her last year at the master level. Relevant education is systems, control, and robotics engineering or similar.
  • The student should have good communication and collaboration skills and be self-driven.
  • Prior experience in Python and/or C++ is required.
  • Knowledge in Robotics Operation System (ROS) is valuable but not necessary.
  • The student should be confident in writing and communicating in English.

We are looking for 1-2 students for this project, and the start of the project is January 2021. The work location will be both KTH Campus (ITRL Lab) and Scania Södertälje. The student must be able to travel between the two locations. The estimated duration is 20 weeks full time.
