Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is the first vehicle manufacturer to protect its OBD interfaces with a security gateway. According to Mahle GmbH, this does not present a problem for users of Mahle's diagnostic tools, such as TechPro (Mahle) or Connex (Brain Bee).
Mahle GmbH has acquired a license package from WiTricity for its magnetic resonance technology. With this move, the technology group can work toward becoming a supplier of wireless charging technology for electric vehicles.
Mahle GmbH reports Martin Wellhöffer, 40, will assume the management of automotive sales and application engineering as of April 1, 2019. He will succeed Arnd Franz, 53, who leaves the company of his own request on March 31, 2019.
