24 | Cluster Report I Transport, Mobility and Logistics – Automotive Mediator between human and technology As a small and medium-sized enterprise, HFC specialises in designing and configuring technical systems and software interfaces in terms of usability, product experience, acceptance and safety. Our further focus lies on research in the fields of traffic psychology and human engineering. With an interdisciplinary team that brings together expertise from psychology, engineering, mathematics, and computer science, problems of hardware and software adaptation to humans are solved. Such include the evaluation of assistance systems in the vehicle and the investigation of fatigue measurability. Our customers come from the automotive, railway, and aerospace industries as well as the departments of safety, medical equipment, and robotics. The basis of our work at HFC is a highly methodological competence – not only in human scientific and technical fields, but especially in interdisciplinary collaboration. Thus, the different questions of human technological design can be handled for all domain applications. They range from the analysis of safety vulnerabilities over development services, such as GUI design or user guidance, to studies of traffic safety or the collaboration between humans and robots. We support product development from the first idea, assessing expectations and requirements, iteratively evaluating mock-ups and prototypes via suitable user research. We develop and provide simulators for tests in the automotive, aviation and safety domain. Besides industrial customer projects, HFC works as R&D partner in several funded research projects, both national and EU-wide. We support partners in the proposal phase as well as in assembling strong consortia. Since 2006, HFC successfully organises Berliner Fachtagung Fahrermodellierung (Berlin Symposium for Driver Modeling).

Cluster Report I Transport, Mobility and Logistics – Automotive | 25 Autonomous driving is just as much part of the subjects addressed by IAV engineers as other aspects, such as engine development, lightweight design, electronics and vehicle safety © IAV Expertise for the Whole Vehicle IAV is one of the leading engineering partners in the automotive industry, successfully making technical innovations ready for SOP for more than 30 years Even if it is not visible, technology by IAV can be found in nearly every vehicle. For years, the company’s customer base has included nearly all automotive manufacturers and their system suppliers. Founded in 1983 as a spin-off from the University of Technology in Berlin, IAV is one of the world’s leading engineering service providers, with a workforce of more than 6,500 employees. In addition to the headquarters in Berlin, the company has other operations in Germany, Europe and Asia, as well as North and South America. The IAV engineers are experts across the whole spectrum of powertrain development. They can develop complete engines and transmission systems and are specialists for injection systems, new combustion methods and after-treatment of exhaust gases. Electronics, vehicle safety and lightweight design round out IAV’s vehicle engineering portfolio. IAV is familiar with the demands of both the passenger car and the commercial vehicle markets. Services • Electronics Development • Powertrain Development • Vehicle Development Expertise for the whole vehicle on a one-stop shop basis is only available from IAV. The company is active in all areas of automotive engineering, offering a wide range of expertise particularly in the fields of powertrain and vehicle development. Needless to say, this includes topics such as digital transformation, big data and services, e-mobility, connected autonomous driving, and mobility concepts for the future. The vehicle is developing more and more into a “rolling device”, communicating with its infrastructure, sending, receiving and processing data, and with this creating a completely new mobility experience with a wide range of new services. They communicate with their infrastructure, send, receive and process data and thus permit a completely new mobility experience with a wide range of new services. IAV is working intensively in these areas, “collaborating” with partners from the IT industry. Proprietary developments of components, procedures and tools guarantee IAV engineers their position as leaders of innovation. The company also has its own advanced engineering activities, working on an interdisciplinary basis in cooperation with universities and research institutes. For example, the EMBATT research project where IAV is collaborating with Thyssen-Krupp System Engineering and Fraunhofer IKTS to research batteries with a driving range of more than 1,000 km per charge. As a leading engineering partner, the company supports its customers in all phases of the development process – from the initial idea via simulation, prototyping, component testing and test bench investigations all the way through to road trials and further activities beyond the start of production. The company always deploys state of the art methods, first-class technical equipment and, above all, highly motivated staff. In brief: What IAV develops, moves you.
