Valeo launches Valeo anSWer, its offer for software solutions and services on demand

The automotive industry is facing its biggest revolution as cars become more electric and more intelligent.

To accommodate these new trends, cars include more software and car manufacturers are moving from a hardware-based architecture to a software-based architecture, the Software Defined Vehicle.

Valeo has more than 30 years of experience in providing our clients with embedded software solutions for safer, cleaner and affordable mobility, as well as to update and personalize functions of the car throughout its entire lifecycle. Today, more than 40% of our 20,000 engineers are dedicated to software and systems.

At IAA Mobility 2023, Valeo launches anSWer, a new offer of software as a product and as a service. This new open, scalable and modular offer includes best-in-class applications, middleware and services to our customers:
