Demands on our means of transport have never been as high as they are today: They should be sustainable, autonomous, connected and at the same time suitable for large-scale use. How can automotive manufacturers meet these expectations and at the same time compete with ever-tougher competition? Questions like these provide daily challenges to our automotive customers and ourselves.
We are already working on the solutions – from high-quality materials for electric vehicles, intelligent steering systems for autonomous driving to digitized assembly lines for highly efficient production processes.
Let's find answers to current and upcoming challenges facing the automotive industry together!
