E-mobility put to the test: High-voltage tests on batteries.
Naima Seddouk knows exactly how software for battery management systems has to perform. To ensure that the batteries for the latest electric vehicles from Mercedes-Benz meet the highest safety and performance requirements even in demanding situations, she and her team put the software through its paces, pushing the applications to their limits with powerful test rigs. In her interview, the engineer explains why Hulk is sometimes used in system tests with particularly high voltage and what her preference for American series has to do with her start at Mercedes-Benz.
Born in Brittany, Naima Seddouk (44) has always been fascinated by technology - even as a child she can get excited about aeroplanes and model cars as well as dolls when playing. During her school years, she discovered her penchant for natural sciences and eventually decided to study engineering at the École Polytechniques in Nantes. For her master's thesis at Mercedes-Benz, Naima Seddouk moved to Stuttgart and subsequently held various positions in engine development. Today, when she and her team are not ensuring that the software for the battery management systems for the latest electric vehicles from Mercedes-Benz meet the highest standards, she loves to spend time in her garden. Caring for her plants is the best way for her to switch off.
