Deep roots

With more than 30 years in business, we’ve established deep relationships with carmakers and suppliers. We understand software development in the automotive industry, having worked with carmakers, including BMW, Daimler, Ford, GM, Volkswagen Group, Volvo, and more on their global technology.

Our relationships with carmakers and suppliers allow us to stay on top of new innovations and to incorporate their technology into our products early in the development phase. That means when you invest in an Elektrobit product, you can be confident it will stay on the cutting edge.

We’ve worked on projects of all types and sizes, playing supporting and leading roles. When you need help with your automotive systems, you can rely on our expertise.

Constant innovation

 

The automotive industry doesn’t stand still, and neither do we. As proven leaders we are constantly pushing the industry forward.

We stay on top of the latest innovations, such as connected cars and autonomous driving. Our products and engineers are open to all market-relevant operating systems and standards, like AUTOSAR, CAN, GENIVI, LIN, MOST, NDS, and OSEK.

Although we’re constantly incorporating the latest technologies, we’re also mindful of the challenges that these changes present to carmakers, so we work to ensure that it’s easy for you to implement these cutting-edge innovations.

Joint ventures and alliances

In 2009 Elektrobit and Audi Electronics Venture GmbH established a joint venture called e.solutions and based in Ingolstadt. The aim of the joint venture is to provide an infotainment framework and therefore to improve the re-use of software developments in automotive infotainment.
