Analysis and concepts for electromobility, automated driving and connectivity

Electromobility and automated driving are attractive future markets and it is imperative that automakers, OEMs and suppliers stay at the forefront.

At Fraunhofer IAO, we support our customers in

  • systematically analyzing new technologies and their added value potential,
  • highlighting and evaluating legal, societal and user-related conditions and influences,
  • drafting future scenarios relating to the design and batch sizes of electric drives,
  • developing business models and
  • advancing technology and innovation planning.

Our goal is to expand the scope of knowledge in the field of automotive technology for electromobility, create a foundation for making decisions and attain more reliable planning. On request, we support our customers in the strategic planning of their products and production processes.

Working in interdisciplinary teams, we pool the knowledge and experience we have gathered from conducting a wide range of research and industry projects. At Fraunhofer IAO, we apply technology management and product planning methods that we ourselves developed, and tailor these to each customer.

If you want to be at the forefront of electromobility and automated driving, take advantage of our technology and potential analyses!
