Highspeed inter-disciplinary engineering



AME Timeline



On March 3, 1989 Thomas Stottan founded AUDIO MOBIL in the city of Salzburg. Besides high-end audio systems, c-net telephones including fax are implemented as Austrian post‘s contract partner meeting automotive requirements, a precursor of the cross-linked vehicle.

Cross-linked vehicles

On order of customers D-Net telephones integrations are set up with notebooks. For the first time it was possible to process a connected car application in real. This was the base to get into contact with OEM’s research offices.

OEM Supplier

About 4 years after AUDIO MOBIL’s foundation, it was listed as OEM-supplier at BMW. The whole responsibility for the development of BMW’s sound module electronic concept was taken over for 18 series.

Research activities

Technology providers have been set up for OEM’s R&D departments. Results of the projects “Transmission parts for vehicles” and “Interactive haptic control panel” are still the basis for integrated radio systems and “touchable” control concepts.


Increased demands on secrecy made it necessary to move to Ranshofen. It is situated centrally in Europe and the resources of an education centre in informatics, communication engineering and mechatronics nearby can be used.


Activities as R&D Service get extended by a small-series production. Short developing times and highly flexible production processes turn out as the benchmark in automotive industry.

New company plant

The new plant has optimized ways from the laboratories, testing facilities and production. The hermetically sealed off company testing site meets the requirements to the OEM’s secrecy.
ISO TS 16949 was implemented.

HMI Laboratory

CEO Mr. Stottan initiates an association with the University of Salzburg to deepen the research in HMI (Human-Machine-Interaction). A considerable promoting partner was found in Christian-Doppler-Forschungsgesellschaft.

Foundation AMV Networks

In 2007 started the xFCD-project (extended floating car data) AMV to gather results of vehicle cross linking. Out of this a strongly expanding business branch of real-time data management started and resulted in AMV Network GmbH’s spin-off.

Lateral thinker Award

Different and ahead of time. AUDIO MOBIL was honoured with the “Lateral Thinker Award” being a progressive thinker. “One who has worked together with AUDIO MOBIL knows, that anywhere else, visions becomes reality more quickly,”CEO Mr. Stottan is convinced.

Steering wheel iCS

In cooperation with Takata AG, one of the world leading steering wheel producers, all information and the control panel including air-bag were integrated in the steering wheel. Wirth iCS (interactive communication steering wheel) also the smart phone is safe to use.


A vehicle optimized in Ergonomic, Interaction- and Communication gives us the possibility to evaluate in real life situations, and to test by interested people issues like iCS, nearfield audio, three operating fields and HMI aspects.
