Mobility in transition

The automotive industry is a global growth industry in transformation due to the challenges of carbon neutrality, electrification, connectivity, mobility ecosystems and autonomous driving. As a result of these transformational topics, the industry must deal with an exponential increase of new digital features in cars delivered ‘over the air’, increased competition from new players, cost pressure and shorter development cycles while coping with ongoing supply chain issues.
