Bertrandt HARRI Winner GIA 2020

Hello, my name is HARRI

... an innovation platform and flagship project for the automotive technology and solution expertise provided by Bertrandt.

I have many parents: engineers, IT and software specialists, designers, project managers, model makers, vehicle construction experts, and all those at various Bertrandt competence centers who are working on the trend topics of tomorrow. With regard to the mega-trends of


they have joined forces to implement their visionary mobility concepts – on the basis of a domain / system structure and with all of the associated interfaces and functions. That’s how they created me. As an innovation platform for solutions relating to all aspects of automated, connected, and electric driving.

My parents are ambitious. They created me as living proof of their competence and innovative power, while at the same time showing how the technical merging of all their solutions works on a platform. In particular, these also include concepts and solutions for the topics of charging, software, connectivity, and ADAS validation – as veritable technological responses to the automotive challenges of today and tomorrow.

They have made me a genuine multi-talent. I can recharge myself at any charging station. I am able to see and hear and I am so good at finding my way around that I can drive autonomously. I am always up-to-date because I am interconnected in many ways and I am linked to a cloud backend. And I also meet all the requirements regarding safety and quality. 

But that’s not all. Like all parents, mine too want me to grow and continuously further develop. They make sure that I learn new things every day and remain open and flexible to visions and everything that is new, such as municipal mobility concepts, car-to-x, battery storage systems, data fusion, etc. As a holistic inspiration and point of reference for your future projects.


The HARRI innovation platform is convincing evidence of Bertrandt’s technical expertise along the entire value chain of future mobility concepts. It offers completely new solutions, not only for the automotive sector, but also for local authority infrastructure, logistics companies, and passenger transportation.

When it all began, I was just a simple rolling chassis. But then the Bertrandt team of experts went to work.


Whether it’s the driver, pedestrians or other road users: I communicate and interact with all, and I do that in many different ways.



I can find my way around the testing grounds alone, can show off what I’ve learned and practice new functions.



My engineers have developed processes, meth - ods and tools for virtual and physical testing in order to validate my autonomous driving functions.




Safeguarding by means of environment sensors

Thanks to radar, LiDAR and cameras, I can see and recognize what’s in my surroundings – with sharpness, precision and reliability. My engineers put me through my paces – independently of specific scenarios.


Thanks to the back-end and the cloud I’m always online and up-to-date. The cloud supports me with all my orientation issues and allows for secure communication with the world around me.


The specialists who created me have developed a high-voltage battery especially for me. It works with the engine or the powertrain to form an ideally suitable system.


To charge my battery, I drive right to the next intelligent charging station. As soon as a charging cable connects us, we can proceed to communicate with each other.


The people who developed me want to make sure my features are perfect and work as they should.  That’s why they standardized all development processes and techniques across all locations.
