Connectivity & user experience

Well maintained and networked in the automotive future

Digitisation and mobile data exchange make it possible: The vehicle and its user are increasingly merging into a functional unit. This creates more safety, more comfort and is even more fun.

Our Connectivity & UX program puts the valid end-to-end protection of the continuous and complex evolving vehicle connectivity functions in central engineering focus. We position ourselves at the interface between the determined vehicle data and the digital services derived from it.

KEY ISSUES

eCall / ERA Glonass

User experience

UX design
Usability

Complete end-to-end chains

An example of this is provided by the automation framework “CShark”. This allows various components of an infotainment system to be tested both individually and in the complete end-to-end chain.

CShark” also stands for the breadth of competencies in our “Connectivity” product area. We take care of the connectivity architecture, functional integration as well as entire security chain of online services in the vehicle and associated digital “ecosystem”.

From the idea to series maturity

Our competencies extend along the V-model from Systems Engineering and Integration & Validation to Embedded Systems. Our comprehensive test and validation know-how based on decades of experience and the associated powerful test infrastructure make it possible for us to critically and constructively accompany connectivity innovations on their way to series production.

Right of way for safety

The key to successful connectivity engineering is provided by complex data analysis and processing. Big data is as much a part of it as comprehensive measurement data and campaign management. Safety is always in view: Risk assessments and time-consuming penetration testing are just as much a matter of course to us as system security through sophisticated cryptography.

The associated potential has long since extended beyond the car to connectivity in the commercial vehicle and non-automotive sectors with similar digital networking requirements.

Next-level engineering: mobility networking

What we work on

From connectivity architecture, functional integration and the entire chain of assuring online services in the vehicle to the associated digital “ecosystem”.

Where we are really strong

From the development of on-line vehicle services to infotainment and mobility networking with smart home capabilities or the Internet of Things (IoT).

What we use

Our comprehensive test and validation know-how and a powerful test infrastructure. We master sophisticated data analysis and processing as well as complex security tools.

Where we want to go

To more safety, more comfort, more driving pleasure and intelligent mobility.

Why we do it all

Everything for the users. User experience is therefore part of the entire development process, from conception through testing to implementation, and is constantly verified by us by field studies.
