AVL has collaborated with major technology leader, Microsoft, to demonstrate the virtualization capabilities for vehicle software development.
The software solution, called AVL DevOps Pilot, provides end-to-end orchestration of the development and operations pipeline including artifacts, simulation models, controller models, and test cases in a cloud-based platform.
This paves the way for AVL’s automotive development expertise using Microsoft Azure, including Microsoft Azure OpenAI Service, and GitHub Copilot.
It dramatically reduces the development time for software defined vehicles as well as automates the testing and validation process and ensures end-to-end traceability of the software development assets.
Jens Poggenburg, Executive Vice President AVL: “AVL combines its extensive expertise in the field of automotive development with Microsoft’s innovative cloud and AI technology. Through this collaboration, we are creating a boost in digital transformation. The bundling of expertise allows us to further develop our engineering and toolchain offering at maximum speed. We are proud to combine our specific application experience with Microsoft’s digitalization expertise.“
Don Manvel, CEO and Chairman of AVL Americas: “Breakthroughs happen when partners bring their best solutions to the table. AVL is combining its extensive expertise in mobility technologies with Microsoft’s innovative cloud and AI technology to create revolutionary solutions that accelerate the development of software defined vehicles to a new level.“
Dominik Wee, Corporate Vice President for Manufacturing and Mobility, Microsoft: “Microsoft is pleased to collaborate with AVL, using the open and configurable SDV Toolchain architecture and comprehensive cloud computing capabilities of Microsoft Azure services to help accelerate AVL’s DevOps Pilot virtual cloud solution.”
At CES booth #3767, AVL highlightsits collaboration with electric vehicle take-off and landing (eVTOL) expert Lilium Air Mobility, in addition to demonstrations of AVL’s advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), battery home storage system solutions, inverter testing, hydrogen solutions and involvement in the U.S. Department of Energy’s EcoCAR EV Challenge.
