ADP is a cloud platform tailored to the development of connected assisted and automated driving functions. Basically, the platform is a customized digital “tool” for our software developers. The development of automated driving and parking functions is highly complex. And it happens iteratively, the systems are continuously learning. Data from a wide range of scenarios plays a very decisive role in these development and learning processes. These include environment data, vehicle data, and system data. The consistent storage and intelligent processing of all this data is the basis for an efficient and sustainable development and thus for safe and innovative customer functions. For ADP, the focus is to create one process environment with agile methods and integrated digital tools.
"The Automated Driving Platform is a customized tool".
The Car.Software Organization and Microsoft will build the Automated Driving Platform (ADP), a cloud-based platform for the development of automated driving and parking functions. For the Volkswagen Group’s software company, the platform will be an important foundation with regard to the efficient development of customer functions for passenger cars. In an interview, Dirk Hilgenberg, CEO of the Car.Software Organisation, explains why this step is important and what ADP is all about.
