As part of being a founding member of the team, it is anticipated that team will establish a dedicated lab for the evaluation, validation and customer debug testing of systems. The lab will likely require an array of specialist test equipment, including robotics and equipment for analogue mixed-signal evaluation of components. In addition, it’s likely that the lab will need to support in-car validation of system functions.
