The new Airbus UpNext demonstrator will pave the way to more autonomous flight capacity by integration of new innovative bricks including computer vision.
This position comes with a CDI-C contract for 3 years, the timeline of the demonstrator.
Passionate and impatient about testing hypotheses and bringing learning into the business based on concrete demonstrations, you must have an artistic spirit into a coder body! Able to create the bridge between conceptual interface with hardware/software reality, you have the ability to step back to have a global vision but also to deep code to concretise these concepts.
As a UI/UX designer for the AirbusUpNext autonomy demonstrator, your primary responsibility will be to design and to follow the development of cockpit user interfaces that enable pilots and other operators to interact with the autonomous system.
You will work closely with a multi disciplinary team of engineers, flight test engineer, pilots and other designers to create intuitive and user-friendly interfaces that enhance the safety and efficiency of the autonomous system by:
Participating in the definition of a study scope and a schedule
Defining the main concepts of interfaces and interactions for an optimization of the Human-Machine teaming
Designing the user interfaces and interactions
Testing prototypes with users and iterating designs
Specifying interfaces and interactions for a hand over developer
Following the implementation of specifications for the conduct of evaluations
Capitalizing via documentation the concepts, and all the design material
