In urban areas, quality of life is closely tied up with mobility – widespread introduction of low-emission cars and avoiding unnecessary journeys through suitable means of communication would both be of enormous benefit to residents.
That’s why the “Mobility and Urbanization” business area focuses its efforts on car-related developments. For electromobility applications, for example, the institutes in the Group develop systems to add electric vehicles to a network, including such information as consumption figures and the necessary communication systems. Drive systems, storage, and the smart power electronics behind them are closely linked to the “Energy Efficient Systems” business area. An additional focus is the use of microelectronics for communication and distribution infrastructures.
