Case Study – PTC

The German government aims to have 1 million electric cars on their roads by 2020. Whilst adoption for specialized street customers, such as DHL, is already a reality, mass market adoption has been slower than anticipated. Professor Kampker is the CEO of a new company whose objective is to bundle and leverage specialized knowledge and know-how surrounding electric vehicles and to initiate a project to reduce overall development prices and to accelerate standards around electromobility. Streetscooter is the mediator and platform creator of this group. To enable seamless collaboration in a distributed network of partners, Streetscooter is leveraging technology from PTC that enables the collection, hosting and consolidation of data from all providing parties as a disruptive network approach.
