trive.me has now also convinced "RIO" of its competencies. RIO is the digital brand of Volkswagen Truck & Bus (soon to be TRATON GROUP), and the first manufacturer-independent, cloud-based platform used for the global transport of goods. Within the context of this new order, trive.me will be working on the further development of the cloud-assisted platform and related devices. Experts in front end and back end development, cloud computing and big data will be employed on this project. Securing "over-the-air" update functions is a further important element of this project.

As an innovative technological leader, the company also has competence centres for ground-breaking future technologies for the automotive industry: lightweight design, eMobility, car IT, integral safety and new production technologies.
