The Software Department
At Koenigsegg, we do most things ourselves. Software is no different.
The Software Department designs & develops all software. From the user experience & design in the infotainment through all the layers down to the bare metal. This includes body control MCUs, Engine-, gearbox- & electrical propulsion ECUs etc. We do the desktop application too, where we can calibrate almost anything live during driving or OTA - of course. We have our own electronics department who does all the electronics too. The box it is going to live in & the harness it is going to communicate through is done in-house as well.
It is a highly unique environment where the possibilities are limitless for the individual to grow as a person & engineer.
The Software Department currently consists of 30 engineers and is expected to grow up to 50 in the team. It is currently set up in 4 teams:
Infotainment & Cloud
Body Control & Comfort Functions
Powertrain & Vehicle Dynamics
