Vector News

Dear Reader,

With increasing registrations for electric cars, buses and other battery electric vehicles, an intelligent charging infrastructure is becoming imperative. Vector supports the development of smart charging points and charging management systems, for example in depots or parking lots.

IP-based communication is the key to smart personalization and updating of vehicles in the field. We will show you where the journey is headed.

The first Vector Virtual Week is behind us. We were overjoyed with the overwhelming interest in the virtual information offering on the diverse topics of E/E development. Did you miss anything from the first VVW? No problem! The videos of the sessions are now online. To continue to support you in developing the mobility of tomorrow, new virtual events are already being planned.

Enjoy reading!

Efficient Refactoring in Industrial Projects

Efficient Refactoring in Industrial Projects

Software projects are expanding on several fronts: source code size growth, multiple developing teams, diversity of coding languages and standards. Maintaining control over these projects requires limiting of code size explosion – use instead limiting massive amounts of code, tight monitoring of Technical Debt, and clear understanding of what should be monitored (new code) or not (legacy code).
