Mercedes-Benz has announced the opening of its Electric Software Hub at the Mercedes Technology Centre in Sindelfingen, Germany.

The company has invested more than €200 million (NZ$315 million) in the hub.

Numerous software, hardware, system integration and testing functions will be brought together under one roof. With this step, Mercedes-Benz is intensifying its approach of cross-functional collaboration.

“The Electric Software Hub is an epicentre of our research and development and at the same time closely networked with the worldwide production sites,” said Markus Schäfer, member of the board of management of Mercedes-Benz Group AG, and chief technology officer responsible for development and procurement.

“This is where key aspects of the future of Mercedes-Benz become reality – especially our own MB.OS operating system. Cars are among the most complex products in general,” he said.

“The hardware and software are decoupled and must work together perfectly. We ensure this in the Electric Software Hub. It is our software integration factory.
