Welcome Interview - Stéphane

Stephane recently joined Stanley Robotics as an Automation Engineer. He’s in charge of programming PLCs for automated process and safety of the cabins.OK, Let’s start by introducing yourself to our readers (Just about who you are, your career so far etc.)I had a French Bachelor’s degree in Engineering Science, so I could say that I already knew that I was going to become an engineer before going to High School. I did everything I could to become one: so after my A-level, I studied Advanced Maths & Physics in preparation classes for competitive entrance examination to French Engineering schools, then I joined the ENSIL, an Engineering School in Limoges, where I graduated in Mechatronics. I had a specialization in Mechatronics because it was a field which, at the time, led to many career paths, in particular in big industrial companies that were developing innovative systems. I had a great passion for aeronautics from the beginning, and during my years of studies I was drawn to automation and robotics which pushed me to do internships in these areas.

Welcome Interview - Erwan

OK, Let’s start by introducing yourself to our readers (Just about who you are, your career so far etc.)So, I started in the automotive sector. I have always had a fascination with cars, and I still have. I started with a Technician’s certificate in car maintenance, so I repaired vehicles in garages. I then did a sandwich course at an engineering school where I began working for Delphi, an automotive supplier. This is where I discovered purchasing. I started in supplier quality assurance where I was involved in improving the quality of parts that were provided by our suppliers, in the electronics department. Having built contacts with suppliers, I pivoted into purchasing. The whole business relationship was of great interest to me, including participating in the strategic aspect of supplier selection.

A process model for designing autonomous vehicles

It is an exciting time to be a designer. Emerging technologies, from machine learning to artificial intelligence and self-driving vehicles, make us question what we know about interfaces. We are still at the very beginning of the AI journey and do not yet fully understand the impact of our design decisions. As Josh Lovejoy, user experience designer at Google, recently put it: “No-one really knows how to do that UX for AI thing yet. (…) We know just enough to know that the space is in desperate need of multi-disciplinary collaboration.”At Stanley Robotics, we fully embrace problem-solving through design thinking and empathic design. Engineers, service operators and product managers are the experts. It is crucial to understand their way of reasoning and perception of the system and we have found it especially important to integrate them into the design process of each of our projects. As a result, we have been busy testing popular methodologies and have adapted them to the particularities of designing for self-driving vehicles and artificial intelligence.
