System Integration and Virtual Validation
The Next Big Thing: Software-Defined Vehicle Development
Software becomes a central role in all industries and forces organizations to adapt their product visions, development approaches and business models. Especially the immense amount of software needed for realizing safe, secure and automated electrified vehicle functions indicates a shift from pure hardware- to software-defined vehicle systems. The resulting complexity is calling for new capabilities in system integration and virtual validation, where collaborative development, digital twin settings or automated test factories turned out to represent key solutions instrumental for coping with the upcoming challenges in vehicle system development, production, and operation.
