Below, an interview with one of the Managers might give you an idea of the position.
Manager Mechatronics about Drive & Control: “Motion plays an important role in many systems. At the front of the creation process, the team identifies which drivetrain is appropriate for the specified movement. Questions that shall be addressed are for example; what type of actuator are we going to use? (stepper, BLDC, voice coil, reluctance?) What should the drivetrain look like between the actuator and the load? (belt, spindle or direct drive?) Does the previous choice have implications for the calibration strategy? For many drive topologies it must be indicated what the requirements are for control engineering. What should the bandwidth be and are the dynamics of the drivetrain compatible with those requirements? The solution is often interwoven in the system, which makes the team an incubator for future system architects. ”
