At APL, vehicle integration is the central element that ensures error-free and safe interaction of all components within the overall vehicle. Our vehicle integration is based on a holistic systems engineering methodology that seamlessly integrates the system and the vehicle into the ECO System Mobility. Specific services in the area of vehicle integration include the development and application of functions in the entire vehicle, the integration of driving dynamics and E/E functions as well as in-depth analyses of HV storage systems.

Software development at APL follows the V-model, with Vehicle Integration always taking functional safety and Automotive Spice standards into account. These precise processes are designed to ensure seamless vehicle integration and the highest quality in our software development.

By focussing on vehicle integration and software, APL creates a basis for the safe and efficient functionality of modern vehicles.
