Concept Development

Our concept development helps you to check all ideas for feasibility and efficient solutions. In addition, we give you recommendations to define these ideas more precisely, which developments are possible or already exist, what the market for corresponding solutions looks like and how the effectiveness of the solution can be optimized if necessary.

Requirement Engineering

Requirements engineering deals with discovering, eliciting, developing, analyzing, verifying, validating, communicating, documenting and managing requirements. CES requirements engineers are specialists in mediating between the domains of customers, developers or suppliers to establish and maintain the requirements to be met by the system, function, software or hardware of interest.

Test & Simulations

In order to enable all necessary test scenarios of a modern development process in an efficient way, we have been staking on virtual environment tests in addition to our work in modern stationary test and test facilities and real test drives for many years.

This allows almost real conditions to be simulated as often as desired without interference with any parameter. Early verification and validation of algorithms, components and architectures minimizes, for example, the number of accidents initiated for testing purposes. It also enables thousands of virtual tests to be completed within the budget and time frame that is normally expected for real-world testing.

Virtual Vehicle Testing

CES provides solutions for virtual vehicle testing. Virtual vehicle workshop, virtual test facilities and broad experience add up to CES Virtual Testing & Simulation being your one-stop shop for virtual vehicle test.
