HiQ advances its position within self-driving vehicles

HiQ has signed a new partner agreement with a world-leading supplier within active safety, which includes establishment and expansion within Autonomous Drive – the technology behind self-driving vehicles.

The partnership will for example focus on the world's first large-scale pilot project for autonomous driving, DriveMe, in which 100 self-driving Volvo cars will be tested in Gothenburg.

The partnership will involve a targeted recruitment drive in Linköping and Gothenburg, in which the joint aim is to employ 30 engineers, 15 in each city, with an emphasis on active safety, image processing, sensor fusion, and self-driving vehicles.

Today HiQ has around 300 product development specialists with a focus on Automotive. Working with a number of global vehicle manufacturers and system suppliers, HiQ has been building its leading market position for 20 years.

"Our partner is in the middle of an exciting technology development within active safety solutions, in which HiQ's technical know-how and experience can contribute to creating the next standard for the self-driving cars of the future," says Patrik Holm, Managing Director at HiQ in Linköping and Norrköping. "We look forward to carrying out exciting development projects at the forefront of technology, and we now need to expand our teams with more talented engineers."

HiQ operates within the entire chain from innovation and product development to implementation. In addition to client projects within active safety and connected vehicles, HiQ has been an active participant in research projects such as "Non-Hit Car & Truck" and "Virtual Prototyping and Assessment by Simulation".

"This is an unique collaboration around self-driving vehicles in which HiQ's three core areas; active safety, infotainment and connected vehicles, are coming together in the same development project for the first time," says Jerker Lindstén, Managing Director at HiQ in Gothenburg. "It feels great to contribute to a development that simplifies and creates a safer and better everyday life for people."

HiQ expands in three Swedish cities following the acquisition of Headlight

Earlier this year, HiQ acquired Headlight Group, consisting of Headlight and Relight. This acquisition is an important part of HiQ’s expansion journey and will bring new job opportunities to the cities of Västerås, Örebro and Borlänge due to the great recruitment need. The news comes just weeks after the acquisition was announced and is an important part of HiQ’s effort to become Northern Europe’s leading tech consulting firm.

– We’re so excited to be expanding to Borlänge and in the cities of Örebro and Västerås! This merger enables us to expand further in the Swedish market and bring new jobs to all three cities while also affording us the opportunity to work together with companies in these areas.

HiQ & BatteryLoop develop more efficient charging infrastructure

BatteryLoop, a company which gives electric car batteries a second life as energy storage systems, launched an energy storage system in the spring of 2021 which makes it possible, among other things, to build charging infrastructure in places where the electricity grid suffers power shortages. In collaboration with HiQ, BatteryLoop is now developing a digital platform that makes it possible to maximize power in the charging infrastructure. The digital platform enables an estimate as to how long a battery has left to live, thus its economic value in a circular business model.

– It is fantastic that our team is joining BatteryLoop on this journey. Circular business models and sustainability are important to us at HiQ, and it really shows with this project. There is an incredible amount to do to streamline the use of energy in society and this solution is an important contribution to that process, says Sven Ivar Mørch, CEO of HiQ.
