Social commitment

Because AVL Software & Functions is not only a company in the automotive sector, but also has a social task as an employer and regionally present company, we are involved in a wide range of areas. Some have to do with mobility - in the narrower sense, as with the Classic Rallye, or in the broader sense, as with the Leukämielauf - others can be linked well to the topic, such as the art project with students who create visual designs on various partial aspects of mobility every year.

Art meets Technology

Lea Gemmer: “Winged encounter”

The Institute of Fine Arts and Aesthetic Education at the University of Regensburg has been cooperating with AVL Software & Functions since 2010.

The joint project was initiated by visual arts academic Josef Mittlmeier and managing director Dr. Georg Schwab at a table in the former university pizzeria.

The students appreciate the project as an introduction to the professional field, the examination of topics such as technology, networking, mobility or globalization and the motivating competition that arises around the exhibition of the pictures and their inclusion in the annual calendar.

Classic Rallye

Even though AVL Software & Functions is developing mobility of the future, it is worth looking backwards – not only for the sake of nostalgia, but also to see how more efficient, faster and resource-saving automobiles have become. "I drive with passion" - the classic cars of the Classic Rallye tell of the myth of speed and of achieving distant goals that seem self-evident to us today. That is why AVL Software & Functions supports the Classic Rallye of the association AMC Deuerling e.V..

Emil - the E-bus for Regensburg's Old Town

Managing directors Dr. Georg Schwab, Prof. Dr. Helmut List and Anton Angermaier in front of city e-bus Emil

In cooperation with "das Stadtwerk. Regensburg GmbH" and the OTH Regensburg, AVL converted one of the five Emil buses to an innovative drive concept. In addition to the design of the two components inverter and e-motor, AVL also implemented the mechanical and electrical integration. The replacement was carried out in the existing E/E architecture. The electric motor, inverter and vehicle control system were calibrated and validated. AVL also handled the configuration of the charging cycle to ensure long operating times, which was also proven by simulations.

Emil has been in operation since 2017 and - as of September 2021 - has covered more than 82,000 km in traffic in the Old Town.

Leukämielauf

Health is an important asset – and supporting people with diseases is also a matter of concern for AVL Software & Functions. Our employees are also happy to run in the Leukämielauf (leukemia run), but we also provide financial support for the event, which is organized on a voluntary basis – "I care for you and me". This way, not only do our employees stay fit, but we also do our part to help leukemia patients get well again.

Spread Smiles

The trainees and manager Anton Angermaier hand over the donations to the Strohhalm

“Spread Smiles” is a charity campaign initiated and organized by our apprentices at AVL Software and Functions GmbH. Employees of the company were invited to leave donations in form of goods or money with the apprentices. These donations are to support the organization “Der Strohhalm” in Regensburg, which has been helping homeless and needy people since 2000.

NACHT.SCHAFFT.WISSEN.

Imparting knowledge is important - so is getting young people enthused about technology! That's why we are an exhibitor at NACHT.SCHAFFT.WISSEN.

In 2019, we showed visitors the electric bus Emil and our e-coupé as well as their charging technologies.
