Master Thesis (m/f/d) Structural Pattern Recognition for Operating User Vehicle Interfaces

  • Kennziffer: PAG-A-1616431230-E
  • Einstiegsart: Abschlussarbeit
  • Einsatzort: Weissach
  • Gesellschaft: Porsche AG


Join our expert team of engineers and researchers to work on the future of automotive user interfaces. You will take on responsibility in an exciting project from day 1 and be able to contribute your ideas while getting to know the Porsche spirit.



For the next generation of automotive user interface systems, it will be essential to have a profound understanding of the user interface display and operating behavior. Information we can gain through sensors & external APIs are the enabler for an optimized user interface, hence a more performant driver experience. One factor is being able to recognize display and control patterns under dynamic conditions, thus real-life environments.



The master thesis aims for an automated solution to recognize operating patterns for classified display & control sequences on a large naturalistic driving data set of vehicle bus information.

The exact structure of the thesis will be defined with the thesis student and the university.

“In the beginning, I looked around and could not find quite the car I dreamed of. So I decided to build it myself.”

This quote from Ferdinand Porsche sums up what Porsche is as a brand, as a company, as a car manufacturer and as an employer. The “Porsche idea” has produced unique sports cars, such as the Porsche 356 and the 911. With the combination of tradition, innovation and our employees` Porsche typical – sometimes unconventional – ways of thinking, we make automobile dreams come true and always have that “little bit more” in our sights. But Porsche is more than “just” an exclusive sports car producer. Because Porsche has a lot to offer as an employer as well: numerous entry and career opportunities, measures for combining work and family, and flexible working hours.
