The Porsche Engineering Data Service (PEDS) facilitates wireless provision of measurement data after a test drive, and allows it to be evaluated quickly. Analyses can be available just minutes after the drive – or indeed during it. And the share of measurement data evaluated live can be increased before any archiving occurs.
With more and more electronic control functions, new driver assistance systems and automated driving functions, along with continued advances in system connectivity, the work involved in calibration and validation continues to increase for the chassis as well. To implement development projects with a high level of efficiency, Porsche Engineering is establishing new digital development methods.
Porsche Engineering has designed a new multifunctional lever for reach trucks for Linde Material Handling. The result is an innovative solution that perfectly combines functionality and ergonomic design.
In the dynamic environment of automated driving functions, fast and efficient development and testing of new functions is more important than ever. To this end, the developers of Porsche Engineering use the development and collaboration platform Jupiter.
The Porsche Track Precision app (PTPA) no longer focuses solely on closed-off ribbons of asphalt: it now offers the integrated Free Drive mode, which makes it possible to record particularly beautiful moments on every drive so that they can be enjoyed again and again.
Rediscover the most beautiful roads in a Porsche over and over again without even getting in the car: the sports car manufacturer from Zuffenhausen is developing an innovative software solution in cooperation with Swiss start-up Way Ahead Technologies to make this concept a reality.
Highly automated driving functions must work safely and reliably in every situation – whether on the highway or in a multi-story car park. One of the ways developers achieve this is through ‘redundancy’; parallel systems observe the environment and decide what to do in critical situations.
More than 30,000 people work for Porsche, all from different backgrounds and each with a different job to do. No matter what the role – engineer, HR specialist, programmer – each member of the team has the same goal: to continue the path that company founder Ferry Porsche took decades ago, with passion and pioneering spirit. Here, the men and women of Porsche give a behind-the-scenes glimpse of their work, from their own unique perspective, as well as the lowdown on current developments.
