Modern networked production is characterised by maximum efficiency. It enables high-quality production and the realisation of positive cost effects. With our expertise in product and production development, we can provide our customers with optimum support on the way to their new production system. Our employees develop manufacturing solutions from the initial idea through to virtual commissioning. Together, we generate profits for ourselves and our customers with technical expertise, motivation and enthusiasm.
Driver assistance systems or ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) should simplify and automate driving. Driving situations can be electronically supported and decisions simplified, or even made for the driver.
We all know the most famous self-driving car: K.I.T.T., a vehicle with artificial intelligence in the 1982 US TV series "Knight Rider". At the time, people thought it was exaggerated and smiled at some of the things K.I.T.T. could do. The driving of the future, and especially the new possibilities opened up by autonomous driving in terms of new forms of communication and virtual entertainment, are boundless.
EDAG has been assisting automobile manufacturers with developments related to piloted driving for a long time. For example, an EDAG Group team of around 60 functional safety and software development experts helped a major OEM and suppliers to take a next generation vehicle towards level 3. Level 3? What does this mean?
Level 3 automated driving
The driver can sometimes lay back and relax. The vehicle can drive independently on the motorway, where there is no oncoming traffic, no intersections or pedestrians. The driver must always be able to intervene in dangerous situations.
As the level of automation rises, the steps involved in the approval process become increasingly complex, especially when it comes to the aim of establishing a vehicle for global use on the market. With its international line-up, EDAG is a strong partner for such complex challenges.
One example of this is the blind spot monitor, which is radar operated in the USA. In this country, the emphasis is more on ultrasound, as this technology is just as reliable but at a fraction of the cost. However, differences between countries apply not only to rules and regulations, but also to → Vehicle handling.
From the connectivity architecture, the functional integration and the entire chain of validation of online services inside the vehicle through to the associated digital "ecosystem". Our customers benefit from our comprehensive testing and validation know-how and powerful testing infrastructure. User experience comes to bear in our entire development process, and we continuously verify this in human subject trials. For more safety, more comfort, more pleasure in driving and intelligent mobility. Whether navigation, sound and acoustics, HMI, infotainment - we offer a variety of topics.
We have created an environment that is characterised by appreciation and friendly cooperation. Job security and our good framework conditions such as flexible working hours, work-life balance and much more support the safety and well-being of our employees.
Head of Autonomous Drive & Safety
"This quote sums up one of the main reasons why I have been working at EDAG for 8 years. Shaping the future - that is possible and desired at EDAG.
Everyone has the opportunity to work independently, to contribute ideas and to help shape the day-to-day work. I myself make use of these opportunities every day - initially in the project, later in team management and now as head of department. It never gets boring. The fact that EDAG also allowed me to take a 3-month sabbatical and that I am now able to combine family and management position through flexible working hours after my parental leave makes me happy. This also contributes to a great atmosphere in the team, my team and I enjoy going to work."
