Hello, We at Toyota-ITC are looking to hire ns2/ns3 developed for a short term contract position. The position is on-site at out center in Mountain View, California. Please note that we will not be able to provide any visa support, so candidate should already be present here in US (also we will prefer candidates who are local in bay area)
If you are interested, please email me at: gban...@us.toyota-itc.com. Let me know if you have any questions. Best Regards, Gaurav Gaurav Bansal, PhD Researcher, Network Group Toyota InfoTechnology Center, USA 465 Bernardo Avenue Mountain View, CA 94043 Mobile: 650-229-4679 Email: gban...@us.toyota-itc.com **************************Job Requirements************************************** ACTIVITIES SUMMARY Toyota InfoTechnology Center conducts advanced research and development of intelligent information processing technologies. Toyota ITC is looking for short term contractor to assist with simulation for congestion control algorithms for vehicular DSRC systems. Dedicated Short Range Communication (DSRC) is an emerging technology that allows vehicles to communicate wirelessly with other vehicles and with roadside devices. One DSRC channel is designated for safety communication. DSRC uses the IEEE 802.11 Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol to arbitrate channel access. This safety communication channel is subject to congestion which leads to frame collisions. Toyota ITC researches congestion control algorithms, and participates in cooperative studies with other OEMs in the VSC3 consortium. The first goal of the work is to simulate congestion control algorithms for DSRC systems for a wide range of cases in a network simulator (ns-3 or ns-2). This would involve writing new code and modifying existing code in network simulator (ns-3 or ns-2) and then writing scripts (for e.g. in Perl) to run simulations for a wide range of scenarios. Finally, it would require to present the obtained results in form of plots (using Matlab software). The second goal of the work is to analyze log files collected from DSRC field experiments. This would involve analyzing the log files (in excel format) and creating appropriate plots (using excel software or Matlab). Conducting new DSRC laboratory or field experiments might also be required. CONTRACT PROJECT ACTIVITIES Working with other members of the team, the contractor is expected to take part in the following activities: 1. Understand existing code in network simulator (ns-3 or ns-2) 2. Implement new functions in network simulator (ns-3 or ns-2) if required 3. Write scripts to run simulations for a wide range of scenarios 4. Analyze performance results of DSRC field test 5. Help in conducting new DSRC laboratory and field test (training would be provided) 6. Document results appropriately for internal reports and publication. QUALIFICATIONS 1. Education: B.S./M.S. Degree Computer Science or Electrical Engineering or equivalent 2. Experience working with C++, Matlab, MS Office (required) 3. Experience working with ns-3 or ns-2 simulator (strongly desired) 4. Experience with 802.11 MAC and communication protocol stack, SUMO simulator (preferred) 5. Strong practical and problem-solving skills 6. Strong oral and written communication skills ADMINISTRATIVE DETAILS 1. Position available at our Mountain View, CA office. 2. Applicants *must* already have the ability/authorization to work in the USA (Toyota ITC will not provide VISA support).
