The commercial vehicle will be part of the Internet of Things
All commercial vehicles are subject to the same trends, regardless of whether their area of application is on or off the road - for example, industrial trucks, construction machinery and agricultural technology. All of these commercial vehicle manufacturers are pushing ahead with trends in electrification, connectivity and automation of their vehicles in varying degrees of prioritisation and development set by their customers and legal requirements. The basis for bringing these innovations into vehicles is intelligent, stable IT and electronic systems and correspondingly high-performance software.
Towards new business models
From the commercial vehicle manufacturer's point of view, the focus is increasingly shifting to business models in which the vehicle itself is less the focus of attention and more a part of the Internet of Things (IoT), meaning that the information (software, operating data, etc.) provided by a vehicle is important for the overall system. The development that classically concerns the electrical “inside” of a vehicle, such as diagnostics and maintenance, must already include the development "outside" the vehicle (such as fleet management).
All the experience you need
ServiceXpert has been an experienced engineering partner for commercial vehicle manufacturers (on-road and non-road) for more than 20 years and has comprehensive expertise and experience in the development of classic electronic systems (from pre-development to series production) as well as in the planning, implementation and operation of the corresponding IT systems. As a systems and software specialist, we see the field of diagnostics as an entire one, from development to after sales. Due to this experienced range of services, we "understand the ‘inside’ of the vehicle" and have already a forward-looking view to the growing importance of the vehicle environment and the associated software and data requirements at the development stage.
