Data applications drive (automated) decision-making. We control robot processes using sensor data and we support the farmer with measurement based cow health reports. Sensor development is therefore an enabler for many existing and new Lely products.

As a Sensor Systems Engineer you have a good overview of Lely robotic products and are aware of the needs and opportunities to collect sensor data.

  • Contribute to the process of writing down technical requirements.
  • Reviewing mechanical and electrical designs to ensure that sensor requirements are met.
  • Set-up and conduct rapid experiments following the fail-fast principle.
  • Support the formal verification of sensor system products.
  • Work closely together with hardware testers, farming domain experts and data & AI specialists.

What is your experience?

  • You have a master’s degree in a relevant engineering discipline.
  • You have at least 5 years of industry experience in system development.  
  • You have a broad understanding of sensors and underlying principles.
  • You have experience with setting-up experiments, collecting and analyzing measurement data.
