AutomotiveINNOVATIONS - Analyses and Forecasts of automotive

engineering innovations

The objective of the Center of Automotive Management (CAM) in the area of AutomotiveINNOVATIONS is to provide comprehensive information and analysis of the automotive innovation chain. We use our MOBIL approach to evaluare innovation within our database.

Our extensive database of vehicle technology

innovations offers i.a.:

8.000 Innovations since 2005

100 Dates per Innovation

700 Innovation Types

Annually about 1,500 individually evaluated, new individual innovations Based on our current extensive innovation database we offer tailor-made analysis of the technological level in the following technology fields:


Control and display concepts


Vehicle concepts/ body

Information and communication systems

Safety systems


19 global vehicle manufacturers with 60 brands are analyzed. In addition, there are 33 brands from 19 smaller groups. These consist of 2 major groups: Chinese (volume) manufacturers as well as western niche manufacturers. In addition, the innovativeness of 100 major global automotive suppliers are recognized and measured. Furthermore, we conduct analyzes of global patents of automobile manufacturers: After the research in international patent offices, the patent data obtained are systematically processed according to qualitative and quantitative characteristics. The systematic evaluation of future innovation trends is the focus of the analysis. The permanent inventory of the latest innovations in global or regional automobile companies will deliver a clear picture of the upcoming automotive technical trends.
