The organizational talent

"I coordinate the teamwork with the faculty for automotive engineering at the TU Munich in the research project "aCar mobility". In this project, we are developing an electrical utility vehicle that is specially designed for the rural areas of Africa. As a research associate, I have dealt extensively with mobility concepts of the future – thus making initial contact with the DRÄXLMAIER Group. The change to the DRÄXLMAIER Campus was definitely the right decision. After the initial training, I quickly assumed full responsibility for my project. I received great support for this from the young team. Our advantages are not only our start-up mentality; we can draw on the extensive competences that the DRÄXLMAIER Group has been developing for decades now. In my opinion, this combination of innovation and experience is the recipe for success."

The inventor

"I'm a software developer on the DRÄXLMAIER Campus, the new research and development site in Garching and I develop algorithms for the electrical systems of the future. Cars that drive autonomously have the highest safety requirements. In the future, technology will take on an increasing number of safety-related tasks, making the reliability of certain parts even more important – I achieve the requirements necessary for this in the software of the control units. I really enjoy working in an innovative environment like that. Together with my colleagues, I can develop solutions for tomorrow's mobility."
