Connected Car: Toyota will zum Softwareentwickler werden


Jetzt verstärkt auch Toyota seine Bemühungen um Softwareentwickler.

Toyota Motor Corp. will increase its software engineer intake to around 40 to 50 percent of all technical hires from spring next year as it looks to supercharge the development of autonomous and other next-generation vehicles, company officials said Monday.

The move to increase its software engineer intake from the current 20 percent comes after Toyota hired about 300 new university graduate or graduate degree-holding engineers, mostly with backgrounds in mechanical engineering, to work from this spring.

The Japanese automaker has said it wishes to strengthen its software development capabilities as the auto industry faces the urgent need to address a transformation to the so-called CASE -- connected, autonomous, shared and electric -- technologies in an intensifying global competition environment.
