Applied EV selects Siemens software to help develop autonomous vehicle systems

Siemens Australia says it is working with Applied EV to continue work on autonomous vehicle systems

Australian technology company Applied EV, who specialise in digital control systems for autonomous vehicles, is utilising Siemens’ high-tech industrial software systems to support the design, quality assurance and build of its next generation autonomous vehicles.

Siemens’ cloud-based Teamcenter® X software for product lifecycle management (PLM), was recently made available in Australia on Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) regional servers and is a trusted tool for Applied EV’s design and product quality workflows to help decrease costs and reduce time-to-market. 

The announcement follows Applied EV’s recent success testing a self-driving cabinless commercial vehicle on European streets and announcement of its long-term alliance with global OEM, Suzuki Motors.

Julian Broadbent, co-founder and CEO of Applied EV, says collaborating with global technology giant Siemens is strategic to progressing the company’s long-term vision. 

“The demand for fully autonomous vehicles and technology is growing exponentially. Siemens’ new cloud-based PLM platform will help us meet this demand, by providing us with better change management and quality. This helps increase first-time right releases of hardware and software, streamlining the company’s integrated approach to engineering,” Broadbent says.

Vice President and Managing Director of Siemens Digital Industries Software Australia and New Zealand Samantha Murray says Siemens is committed to empowering innovative companies like Applied EV drive sustainable growth and transform their industries.

“Applied EV is a true Australian success story of a company leading through innovative design, data and manufacturing. They are at the forefront of commercial autonomous technology that can be applied to any vehicle or system across multiple industries,” Murray says.

“We are proud to be working with Applied EV as we share a common goal of using software to innovate and challenge the status quo.”

Applied EV’s core product, the Digital Backbone (DBB) is a purpose-built software control system for electric and autonomous applications.

The DBB advances the digital capabilities of electric vehicles, in turn, reducing hardware complexity and manufacturing costs to optimize the deployment of autonomous driving technology and support the next generation of vehicle architectures to be completely software defined.

It is carefully crafted to comply with the highest safety ratings making it an ideal solution for Level 4/5 autonomous applications.
