Vector consolidates automotive electronics position with takeover of Tesis

Vector, a specialist in developing and testing software and vehicle electronics located in Stuttgart, Germany, has completed a full takeover of Munich-based Tesis.

Tesis specializes in simulation solutions for virtual road testing – in particular, real-time-capable engine and vehicle models.

The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. 

Vector boasts a wide-ranging product portfolio for conducting tests on the system, function and code levels of distributed embedded systems.

With its takeover of this company of specialists in Munich, Vector has expanded its range to include models for dynamic simulation of the testing environment for software, ECUs and vehicle components.

Modular simulation products DYNA4, veDYNA and enDYNA from Tesis provide interfaces for flexible coupling with a wide variety of different tool environments, are platform-independent and run on conventional HiL hardware in real time.

Tesis GmbH was originally part of the Tesis group of companies founded in Munich in 1992 and operated as Tesis DYNAware until May 2018.

It targeted the dynamic simulation of virtual vehicles in every sphere and complemented this with environmental and sensor simulation for the virtual road testing of driver assistance systems and autonomous vehicles.

Maximilian Chucholowski, managing director of Tesis, says: “We are excited to become part of Vector.

“We share the goals of customer proximity and quality with Vector and work with our motivated team of developers to overcome the same challenges.

“Vector’s strong, global market presence will increase our reach and further increase our service quality.”

Dr Cornelius Chucholowski, senior partner and founder of Tesis, says: “I welcome our joining with Vector. It secures the market success of our products and guarantees continued customer-oriented development.”

Thomas Riegraf, managing director of Vector, says: “The product portfolio of Tesis, which consists of a broad range of tried-and-tested model libraries and a powerful simulation framework, is another component of Vector’s strategy for offering our customers suitable solutions for the virtual verification and validation of distributed systems.

“It fits perfectly into the Vector test portfolio.”
