Audi goes digital

Digitalization has a significant effect on the automotive world. New business models, new competitors and an increasing demand for new mobility solutions require a rethinking of the classical vehicle development.

Audis way to meet these challenges in the electronic development are three key technologies: A sustainable electronic architecture, a seamless integration of the vehicle into its environment as well as the usage of artificial intelligence. This is the base for future digital services, autonomous driving and a seamless end-to-end user experience for the customer.
