INNOVATION AND BEST PRACTICES
Innovation is also required in the commercial vehicle sector. Our design work is characterised by the will to seek new solutions. Comatec assigns sufficient resources to design, testing and piloting in order to minimise the risks associated with the commercial success, design, usability and safety of products.
We provide consulting services, for example, for the application development of entire electrical systems and the management of product structures. Our key expertise areas in embedded systems include specifications, circuit and layout design, software and EMC testing. Our services also extend to the production of customer-specific product modifications, product integration and the design of after-sales services. The level of electrical design in commercial vehicles has increased steadily, and the bus technology and wireless data transfers have made the design process more demanding. We also prepare production documentation and, if required, take care of testing and official approvals. At the product deployment stage, our services include production guidance and monitoring.
We specialise in commercial vehicles that set very high standards for safety and comfort. We also design HVAC systems for commercial vehicles to improve the quality of air. When it comes to buses, trains and trams, the comfort of passengers and a clean environment become important. The external parts and design of a vehicle make every product unique and also shape the manufacturer’s business image. Standing out from the rest offers a competitive edge.
Not only requirements set out in laws and regulations, but also the increased wishes of users end up on the desks of our designers. This can especially be seen in interior design where identifying design and usability trends now plays a significant part.
In addition to expertise, project management and risks, we focus on communication and trust. Trust helps us to maintain open communications and to enjoy what we do. We have taken part in many demanding commercial vehicle projects, giving us a full understanding of product development and design processes in this field.
