IT Engineering for Commercial Vehicles

The product portfolio for commercial vehicles comes along with a broad range: whether commercial vehicles for long-distance transport, distribution transport or for use on a construction site, or even special-purpose commercial vehicles. Having such a great variety in products means a high complexity in terms of configuration, administration and especially in validation.

The project introduces a new paradigm of how trucks are configured and therefore plays a crucial role in the future of commercial vehicles. Developers will not only be able to bring in their ideas regarding the project itself but also continuously evolve the current development stack to improve our processes and ourselves.
