Masterclass: Designing AI-Driven Business Models in Automotive Engineering

The Motivation and Challenge:

    • Automotive industry, including automotive engineering is currently transforming due to a shift in the sense of mobility and new technologies as connected cars, autonomous and automated driving or electrification, generating huge amount of data. This opens the potential and necessity for new AI-driven business models for automotive players.

The AVL approach:

    • In this talk we want to present our approach, how AVL, the world’s leading independent engineering company for established and future powertrain systems, develops new AI-driven business models for automotive engineering and beyond. Basically, such endeavors require the identification of potential data sources and customer problems and to develop a solution – the data product – with methods such as advanced analytics and customer intimacy. Analytics-based solutions should solve customer problems (e.g. decision problems) in a meaningful way.

Benefit for the audience:

    • Join us and gain first hand insights into the application of analytics and AI in automotive engineering and our approach for developing new business opportunities with data analytics and AI for our customers
