Since its foundation in 2014, the Automotive Business Unit (ABU) has focused on strategic topics in the vertical market segment of automotive. The ABU supports companies not only in mastering the transformation in the automotive market, but also in profiting from it. The central focus is on modern and economical concepts for the mobility of tomorrow.

At the beginning of 2020, ABU founded the Automotive Executive Community (AXC). Here, decision-makers from OEMs, Tier-1 and Tier-2 and component manufacturers come together to form an exclusive community of experts. The Automotive Executive Community opens doors that would otherwise remain closed at the operational level. The focus is always on the upcoming challenges in the field of automotive electronics. AXC members thus have access to a pool of information, e.g. on the trends of the respective manufacturers, current market conditions and the latest innovations.
