Communications-based train control (CBTC) is a railway signalling system that makes use of the telecommunications between the train and track equipment for the traffic management and infrastructure control.
By means of the CBTC systems, the exact position of a train is known more accurately than with the traditional signalling systems.
This results in a more efficient and safe way to manage the railway traffic. Metros (and other railway systems) are able to improve headways while maintaining or even improving safety.
In Bucharest, in the Urban Rail Signalling (URS) department, we are working for the CBTC system developed by Thales Canada and delivering in the following areas : Component Testing, Code Review, Requirements writing and Software Testing.
We are a young and dynamic team, in continuous development and we seek for a new team member.
Job Topic :
Component Testing using VectorCAST
VectorCAST is a tool for unit / component testing which aids in obtaining % statement, branch and MC / DC coverage in order to guarantee code compliance with CENELEC standard.
Starting from the requirements of a component, functional tests have to be created and configured in order to recreate component’s behavior.
After the requirements are fulfilled, the remaining code is covered with white box tests (unit tests).
For the development of the tests, various data structures have to be developed and used in C : trees, linked lists, structs, arrays etc.
Pointers have to be used to access parts of these data structures. Also, memory management in C has to be understood.
Various python / bash scripts might be implemented in order to automate the delivery of the artifacts.
Agile Scrum is used in this project with JIRA as the tool for tasks management.
Specific tasks will be :
Required skills :
At Thales we provide CAREERS and not only jobs. With Thales employing 80, employees in 68 countries our mobility policy enables thousands of employees each year to develop their careers at home and abroad, in their existing areas of expertise or by branching out into new fields.
Together we believe that embracing flexibility is a smarter way of working.
