Serving the Communities of Today and Tomorrow
Now, more than ever, the entire world is within reach. Whether by air, rail, or road, transportation is a driver of development and growth for our cities and the economy. A comprehensive, sustainable view of transportation is needed to ensure service quality, efficiency, and user satisfaction in coming years, in a world where environmental concerns are increasing.
Sustainable mobility and transportation electrification rely on several of our areas of expertise, whether it’s in terms of integrating systems on board vehicles operating in harsh environments, designing electronics to capture operating data, or engineering software to guide the moving parts of a busy network to their destinations.
It goes without saying that every mode of transportation is subject to specific regulations and technical standards to ensure the safety of systems and passengers. Strict compliance with these requirements, including standards such as EN 50126, EN 50128, ISO 26262, IEEE 1558 and UN R155 and R156, is an integral part of everything we do. We keep abreast of best practices in every area of specialization to provide you with the best possible solutions and reach new heights in safety, quality, and productivity.
