AVL List GmbH
AVL is the world’s largest independent company for the development, simulation and testing of powertrain systems (hybrid, combustion engine, transmission, electric drive, batteries, fuel cell and control technology) for passenger cars, commercial vehicles, construction, large engines and their integration into the vehicle. AVL has about 4,300 employees in Graz (Austria), and a global network of 45 representations and affiliates resulting in more than 11,500 employees worldwide.
The company has decades of experience in the development and optimization of powertrain systems for all industries. As a global technology leader, AVL provides complete and integrated development environments, measurement and test systems as well as state-of-the-art simulation methods.
As a pioneer in the field of innovative solutions, such as diverse electrification strategies for powertrains, AVL is increasingly taking on new tasks in the field of autonomous driving (connectivity, ADAS, CCAD, etc.) especially on the basis of subjective human sensations (driveability, performance attributes, etc.). In the competition of technologies – internal combustion engine, battery/electric drive and fuel cell systems – and their combinations, AVL is working intensively and with the same priorities.
AVL has digitized the vehicle development process with state-of-the-art and highly scalable IT, software and technology platforms, and creates new customer solutions in the areas of big data, artificial intelligence, simulation and embedded systems in an agile and integrated development environment.
As engineering partner of leading OEMs throughout the world, AVL is constantly seeking for new capabilities and their exploitation. AVL is continuously carrying out research and technical development in the fields of advanced automotive powertrains, battery and fuel cell development and autonomous driving. AVL is active in many European interest groups like ARTEMIS Joint Undertaking (member of the Steering Board), ERTRAC, EARPA, EGVI, European Green Cars Initiative, EUCAR etc. Since Framework Program 3, AVL has been participating in more than 140 European RTD projects as partner and coordinator.
