Future Mobility

Vehicles and systems technology of tomorrow

Be it autonomous driving, connectivity or mobile services that complement the actual driving: EDAG deals with changes in mobility behaviour and develops the important engineering competencies for these business models. Thus, we not only develop innovative vehicle concepts, but also mobility concepts and software solutions that are directly accepted in the market and incorporated into a variety of customer projects.

 

Traffic jams in inner cities, consumers turning away from their own cars, and driving bans to protect the climate have a significant impact on personal mobility as well as traffic and urban planning. This is reflected in modern mobility concepts such as car sharing, ride sharing, car pooling and micro-mobility.

New, forward-thinking vehicle technologies like CASE (i.e. Connected, Autonomous, Shared, Electrified) are entering the market almost simultaneously. With their partly disruptive character, they require new engineering skills. As an innovation-driven engineering service provider, we recommend ourselves as a sparring partner for our customers in the technology sector at an early point in time.

Business model innovations are becoming increasingly important alongside incremental innovations in the core business. We help our customers develop further and strengthen their competitiveness and help idea providers to position themselves.

CASE vehicles (Connected, Autonomous, Shared, Electrified) sometimes require completely new vehicle architectures. We are driving the development of Purpose Design forward with the

Development of new vehicle architectures

  • for Battery Electric Vehicles (BEV),
  • Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV),
  • Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) and
  • conventional Internal Combustion Engines (ICE) in new dimensions

Architecture for new mobility concepts

  • Interior concepts for sharing vehicles and people movers

In economical small series production with highest quality requirements and IT-supported management of the variant diversity, we see many possibilities to develop and manufacture individual and highly specialised mobility solutions economically in small batches.

We research and develop new technologies and system solutions for energy-efficient mobility of the future:

  • Sustainable drive technologies,
  • Innovative system and charging concepts
  • Storage systems, integration of electric drives and
  • Modular concepts for alternative energy storage and drives

With EDAG BFFT Electronics, we consolidate our electronics, hardware and software competencies under one strong brand.

For assisted and automated driving, we are developing solutions to increase the availability of camera-based sensor data, including using AI technologies - making driving functions more robust with better input data.

Development tools for rapid evaluation of vehicle-based sensor systems, for example, in detecting objects, developers enable early achievement of a higher degree of maturity of driving functions - sensor raw data fusion is the key.

In the course of automation, the vehicle assumes the driving task, thus changing the role of the person in the vehicle. In this context, we investigate novel haptic interfaces regarding the interaction between humans and vehicles.

In order to develop sustainable vehicles, we need to understand the world of tomorrow - especially the different requirements of drivers and passengers.

This requires empathy from developers and a deep understanding of user needs. Knowing this is the key to solutions and applications that inspire. For example, virtual assistants for the driver in case of warning lights, automated payment systems (e.g. in the parking garage), parking reservations, etc.
