ViGEM Certified According to ISO 14001

Expert of high-end data logging for autonomous driving relies on environmental management

Karlsruhe   Sustainable behavior protects resources and the environment. ViGEM GmbH has been certified according to the international standard ISO 14001 for its foresight and prudence in environmental management. ViGEM CEO Markus Trauth explains: "The high standards we set for big data logging solutions for validating automated and autonomous driving we likewise apply to our environmental management. The aim of ViGEM is to act sustainably and become the market leader for high-performance data logging solutions in international competition.”

The environmental management of ViGEM includes the planning, control, monitoring, and improvement of all operational measures for the protection of the environment and employee management. The company-specific goals, requirements and measures were listed in an environmental management catalog. These include, for example, the ongoing reduction of energy consumption and pollutant emissions, a multi-level waste hierarchy system, and the reduction of business trips to a necessary minimum. By promoting video conferencing and car-sharing, ViGEM contributes to reducing CO2 emissions and advancing global climate protection. To conserve natural resources during the development, production, and recycling of ViGEM products, the consumption of raw materials, energy, and water should be minimized, and waste quantities should be reduced. Besides, waste and residues, which inevitably arise in the course of product life cycles must be disposed of in an environmentally friendly manner.

The ongoing implementation of these measures across all corporate divisions is ensured through employee training, continuing education, and the continuous improvement of processes. For the specialists in the field of electronics, both the certifications to ISO 14001 (environment) and ISO 9001 (quality seal) are pillars of an integrated management system and an important basis for building a partnership of trust with suppliers and customers.


The progress of the development of automated driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving functions will depend on qualification and validation processes. For collecting, storing and transferring this big data, ViGEM developed comprehensive all-in-one solutions for customers in the automotive industry. The high-performance Car Communication Analyzer (CCA) solutions consist of CCA data loggers, robust removable CCA data storages and flexible CCA copy stations.

The validation of ADAS and autonomous driving is one of the biggest challenges in the development of innovative mobility concepts. For this purpose, huge amounts of data must first be recorded in field tests during the validation phase before the start of production. Test vehicles of well-known automobile manufacturers cover millions of kilometers to record the most diverse traffic, weather and environmental situations in different countries. Until a few years ago, the storage, visualization and transmission of such large, uncompressed amounts of data was unimaginable, and even today it still poses the highest technical demands to the developers of big data loggers.

With the high-speed data loggers from the technology expert ViGEM, maximum data volumes can be recorded continuously and uncompressed in field tests, in the laboratory and on the test bench. In order to validate the automated driving functions, the loggers record the raw data of real driving scenarios taken from radar and lidar systems, from high-resolution cameras and from all automotive standard buses.

After the transfer to the cloud, the huge amounts of recorded, uncompressed raw data have to be analyzed fast and efficiently in order to incorporate them into intelligent, reliable software solutions or automated driving functions.


ViGEM GmbH is one of the leading specialists for mobile data logging in automotive applications. The integrated hardware and software products are used in the qualification and validation of automated driver assistance systems (ADAS) and autonomous driving (AD) functions. ViGEM develops high-performance end-to-end systems consisting of powerful data loggers, robust removable data storage devices, and fast ingest stations. For more than 10 years, we support our customers in the development of innovative vehicle control units and set standards in mobile vehicle measurement and diagnostic electronics with our CCA products.
