Croatia is a small country that continuously spawns an enormous amount of talent across all fields. From the world of science and medicine to innovation, sport and art, this country has a lot to give. Zagreb experts from one large company with a branch here in Croatia are dipping their toes into the future…
As Darko Bicak/Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 20th of July, 2020, Zagreb experts working for GlobalLogic Croatia, a multinational company in the product engineering segment, are participating in the development of a system for the cars and other vehicles of the future, and recently a prototype of an autonomous car model was developed in one of its branches in Poland.
As explained by Josko Rogulj, programme director at GlobalLogic Croatia, the car is based on the Suzuki Samurai model made entirely with the help of a 3D printer. It is an electric vehicle, and thanks to the Raspberry Pi minicomputer, it can be connected wirelessly to a central system that performs complex data processing operations.
The plan is to implement advanced functions of the driver assistance system, which will, among other things, enable the identification of traffic signs and the detection of pedestrians, animals and various other objects on the road.
“Zagreb experts from the city’s office work every day on software improvements for the cars of the future for some of the world’s largest brands. The automotive industry is among those which are changing rapidly and in which the shifts in the coming years will be enormous.
We’re working on security systems, such as software for vehicle control systems, as well as on infotainment and communication systems, which are much more visible to the user. Autonomous vehicles are our present, and very soon there will be more and more of them on our roads,” assured Josko Rogulj.
Otherwise, GlobalLogic is headquartered in the famous Silicon Valley, USA, and in addition to its Zagreb office, it has thirty engineering centers and design studios and employs more than 14,000 professionals worldwide.
