An ASPICE (Automotive Software Process Improvement and Capability dEtermination) CL2 certificate has been awarded by DEKRA to VicOne for its automotive embedded software development and quality control.
The ASPICE certificate was created to assess the performance of development processes of OEM suppliers within the automotive industry and is tailored for the specific needs of international car manufacturers and the automotive ecosystem.
