New cooperation with Knorr-Bremse
We are pleased to extend our collaboration with Knorr-Bremse Group, a well-known manufacturer of braking systems for rail and commercial vehicles on the market for over 110 years. With 24,000 employees and 100 locations in 30 countries, the company is one of the world leaders in the field.
Our assignment was to develop a set of applications for Autonomous Yard Maneuvering solution showcasing the next generation of Knorr-Bremse’s automation and control systems and components for commercial vehicles. The work started in May 2016 with an onsite visit of the Sigma team having the goal to set up an efficient development process, clear up the scope and requirements, prepare user interface wireframes, and start solution design and development activities in tight collaboration with an existing Knorr-Bremse team. Development of applications and their integration with Knorr-Bremse’s solution took place during summer 2016. Knorr-Bremse successfully presented a fully autonomous truck and the Autonomous Yard Maneuvering system during IAA 2016 Commercial Vehicles exhibition in Hannover at the “New Mobility World Live” demonstration area.
“We have been delivering Product Information services to Knorr-Bremse since 2013. This was our first software development assignment for them, a collaboration between Sigma Technology Hungary and Sigma Software.
