AVL is the world's largest independent company for the development, simulation, and testing of drive systems (hybrid, combustion engine, transmission, electric drive, batteries, fuel cell, and control technology) for passenger cars, commercial vehicles, stationary engines, large engines, and their integration into the vehicle. As a pioneer in the field of innovative solutions such as diverse electrification strategies of propulsion systems, AVL is increasingly expanding its services in the field of autonomous driving, especially on the basis of subjective human perception (driveability, connectivity, ADAS, etc.). In the competition between technologies – combustion engine, battery-electric drive, and fuel cell – as well as combinations of them, AVL works intensively with equal priorities.

The Cluu application platform provides the foundation for Softwarehelden's digitization solutions. With a new integration technology, it enables the merging of enterprise systems and ensures the "enterprise readiness" of the solutions.
Softwarehelden GmbH & Co. KG concentrates on the further development of the platform, while MicroNova handles the application development at the customer's site.
Based on Cluu, MicroNova's experts have developed an application that manages and monitors the complete test cycle of ECU fusing and enables evaluation across system boundaries. Cluu apps are suitable for companies from all industries that have large amounts of information to process. Currently, the applications are primarily in use in the automotive industry and are being further developed in an agile manner in live operation at major automobile manufacturers.
Validas AG is an expert for library and tool qualification, innovation partner for method and tool deployment as well as pilot user and developer for model-based methods.
In cooperation with Validas, MicroNova offers the Qualification Kit "EXAM ISO 26262 QKit" for functional safety for the test automation solution EXAM. This allows EXAM to be qualified on-site and in the customer project according to ISO 26262. The test automation solution as well as the documentation generated during qualification can be easily integrated into functional safety relevant tool chains and the document tree at automotive manufacturers or suppliers in a standard-compliant manner.
The EXAM QKit was developed according to a method certified by TÜV and includes an ISO 26262 compliance report that proves the standard conformity of the qualification.
