Linking two worlds: new development of an e-bike system for an automotive corporation


Automotive manufacturers are pushing into the e-bike market. Thanks to years of experience in both worlds, AKKA Digital, formerly GIGATRONIK, could successfully support Volkswagen in the new development of an e-bike system. As part of the project, AKKA Digital developed two HMIs with an intuitive operating concept. Via operating elements located on the handle bars, the functions of the e-bike (e.g. diagnosis gateway, connection to the smartphone, navigation, coach function, profile management) can be comfortably controlled by the rider. AKKA Digital was also involved in an advisory capacity regarding strategic design decisions. Additionally, AKKA DIgital took over the conception and documentation of the complete E/E architecture as well as the technical coordination of the project.
