The customer’s goals are our goals. For years now, we have been supporting teams of notable racing-car manufacturers in designing and developing smart software and smart electronic components – with enormous success. Our technology partnership with Audi Sport, for example, included supporting the development of the Audi R 18 e-tron quattro, which won the 24 hours of Le Mans endurance race in 2012, 2013, and 2014.
As a strategic partner, we assist our customers in developing new, customized functions that decisively improve the likelihood of victory. Together with the racing teams, we continuously optimize their racing vehicles in extremely short development cycles. After all, that reflects the true spirit of racing: We regularly develop robust, dependable algorithms and electronic components with the clock ticking. Thanks to model-based methods and end-to-end virtual environments, we can test individual components and their interaction before they even hit the racetrack. Distributed functionalities, such as hybrid or switching strategies, can be particularly advantageous in this regard. As such, we ensure the quality of new functions at a very early stage of the development process. In turn, our customers benefit from our continuous and comprehensive approach to service. This includes a requirements analysis, development and implementation, and service support at the racetrack.
