Daimler Truck Holding has opened a Product Engineering and IT Center, officially named Daimler Truck Innovation Center India (DTICI) in Bangalore.
“Together with DTICI, Daimler Truck is creating a new, company-owned incubator that will create large-scale innovations for its global product portfolio in the future,” the company said in a statement.
“DTICI uses India’s very comprehensive engineering and IT talent fund to develop innovative products that provide competitive advantages for all Daimler Truck brands around the world. In addition, DTICI operates as a global engineering provider as part of an integrated R&D network with North America, Japan and Germany.
Andreas Gorbach, head of truck technology, said: “Transforming our industry is a huge challenge – and also a huge opportunity: it gives us a chance to revisit the truck itself. And that’s exactly what we’re doing with CO2-neutral drives and converting trucks into software. With DTICI we can increase our development speed in both areas. Particularly comprehensive software expertise can help us accelerate the intelligent operating system of trucks. “It can make our customers’ businesses more successful – by increasing vehicle uptime, reducing innovation cycles and improving their operational efficiency.”
DTICI originated from Mercedes-Benz Research & Development India (MBRDI) due to Daimler Truck spin-off from Mercedes-Benz AG (formerly Daimler AG). It will focus on research, product engineering and IT capabilities to strengthen all Daimler Truck business units and brands worldwide, including Mercedes-Benz, Freightliner, Western Star, Thomas Built Buses, FUSO, Bharat Benz and Setra.
The Innovation Center’s engineering team will focus on a range of topics: automotive engineering, electrical engine engineering, software development for electronic control units, computer engineering (CAE), computer aided design (CAD), IT programming using sophisticated engineering tools and methods. . Equipped with software tools and labs, this agency will work on the topics of connectivity, cybersecurity, big data and advanced analytics, system integration and electrification. The design team will focus on developing products to redefine the interior and exterior of a wide range of Daimler Truck vehicles.
