In combination with the long-standing shareholders, namely the Graz University of Technology, AVL, MAGNA, Siemens and Joanneum Research, the two new, highly innovative partners want to push the development of digital mobility. There are a large number of unresolved tasks, and international demand for expert support is very high.
"In the next 5 years, we will focus our EUR 120 million research focus on the digital transformation of vehicles. From self-driving vehicles and safety and data usage to innovative prototype tests and pioneering mobility concepts, our range of forward-looking research fields is very attractive, "explains Jost Bernasch, Managing Director of the Virtual Vehicle Research Centre in Graz. At the Research Centre, digital mobility means all solutions for the development and improvement of intelligent and connected vehicles and their systems.
A great deal of know-how in various fields of research and industry is necessary so that simulations will fit into the process of development and serve as the basis for correct assertions about future behaviour, for example maintenance requirements. In turn, this leads to an enhanced convergence of the digital and vehicle industries. This megatrend also strongly impacts the railway sector. The linking of different forms of mobility, virtual development and predictive maintenance are core issues of the research being carried out.
