For the area of product management at the Villingen-Schwenningen site, we are offering an opportunity for a bachelor's student (m/f/diverse) to write their mandatory thesis with Continental starting in September 2024. The working-hours will be mainly on-site in Villingen-Schwenningen. Remote work is possible according to prior agreement.

The Bachelor Thesis will explore the topic of integrating Artificial Intelligence (AI) into fleet management software (VDO Fleet). This project aims to enhance operational efficiency, reduce costs, and improve decision-making processes within fleet operations. The student (m/f/diverse)  will support in researching, developing, and proposing innovative AI solutions that can be integrated into our existing fleet management systems.

Get on board, become a part of Continental and also benefit from our Villingen Internship Program (VIP).

Key tasks:

  • Conduct research on current AI technologies and their application in fleet management
  • Analyze existing fleet management processes to identify areas for improvement through AI integration
  • Develop a detailed proposal outlining the scope, objectives, methodology, and expected outcomes of the thesis. This should include a plan for how AI can be integrated into specific aspects of fleet management software, e.g. in vehicle tracking, maintenance scheduling, and fuel consumption optimization.
  • Work closely with the product management and development teams to understand the technical architecture of our fleet management software. Propose and prototype AI-driven features or modules that align with the project's goals
  • Design and conduct tests to evaluate the effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed AI integrations. This includes setting up benchmarks, analyzing data, and gathering feedback from stakeholders
  • Document all research findings, development processes, test results, and analysis in a comprehensive thesis. Prepare and deliver a presentation to company stakeholders, showcasing the project, its findings, and potential impact on the business.
