AVL and NorCom Information Technology are working together to develop NorCom’s DaSense software platform, which is used to manage and analyze large quantities of complex, heterogeneous, semi-structured and proprietary data. DaSense will be integrated into the AVL solution portfolio with a focus on big data technologies.
Wolfgang Puntigam, global business unit manager at AVL, commented, “By collaborating with NorCom we can substantially extend our existing range of data management products, adding a highly scalable data analytics system. This provides customers with large quantities of development-specific information throughout the entire vehicle development process in an application-oriented way.”
DaSense will be expanded with numerous additional functionalities. This includes a software module for the test data management tool suite, which will be capable of processing object-based, spatial data specifically for autonomous vehicle development. As an integral part of AVL’s portfolio, the extended DaSense platform and the software module developed by AVL and NorCom are to be marketed in initial customer projects and integrated at customers’ sites.
The collaboration also offers advantages for NorCom. “By partnering with AVL, we are adding an indirect channel to our previously exclusively direct sales channel, which greatly increases sales opportunities for us. AVL’s global presence gives us access to major customers all over the world,” said Dr Tobias Abthoff, managing director at NorCom. “By working closely with AVL we will obtain vital feedback, which we can then incorporate into the development of DaSense.”
