Automatic driving, the connected car, safety, mobility and maintenance

Sioux has a thorough knowledge of the critical processes in the automotive industry. This is in line with the growing demand for contemporary, future-proof hardware and software systems for vehicles and the use of them. This is how we help customers to improve their products, speed up their time to market and reduce costs.

IoT is a key factor to realise the smart city with completely new earnings models. For this purpose, real-time data must be collected and converted to information. This information is made available by backoffice applications for operators, OEMs, T1 suppliers, transport authorities and passengers. Nowhere is this specific combination of domain and software expertise as high as Sioux.

Shell City Car 

Sioux collaborated with Gordon Murray Design to realise the Shell City Car of the future. In the development and construction of the concept car, our contribution included the body controller hardware, the software implementation and the full wiring harness.

This is a time of radical transition in the automotive industry. Vehicles become more sustainable and change into multifunctional information systems. At the same time, the end product itself is starting to lose its significance. Consumers and businesses want to efficiently go from A to B and wish to be facilitated with smart tools. Technological innovation - especially in the field of software intelligence - is therefore crucial to the success of OEMs and their suppliers.

Sioux perfectly senses our needs and optimally responds to them. ‘Sioux perfectly senses our needs and optimally responds to them.’

Mario Marchi, CEO of Marchi Mobile Group

Vehicle performance and functionality are increasingly determined in the combination of technological domains. The added value of Sioux is therefore our expertise in product and system development at the cutting edge of mechatronics, electronics, mathematics and high-quality embedded and application software. Additonaly, as an R&D and manufacturing company, we easily bridge the gap between development, manufacturing capabilities and efficiency in maintenance.

Cases
