...the smallest parts have a big function!
Due to a variety of environmental concerns and the increasing demand for comfort, convenience, safety, and protection, the automotive sector is continually generating innovative solutions. A foundational part of these innovations is in the area of body electronics, which perpetually offers new functions due to its growing communication bandwidth.
Intelligent Glass (IGC) is a state-of-the-art solution with multiple applications. It allows flexible transparency and coloration settings for any glazed surface ensuring greater control over privacy and light penetration.
Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System (AVAS) is an additional element to electrical vehicles that artificially generates a sound which will be generated through loudspeakers or actuators based on vibration of structural elements of the vehicle proportional to vehicles parameters, for example velocity, gas pedal position and gear.
As the leading supplier of access control systems, we develop innovative functions and technologies for modern vehicles.
Stringent EU fleet CO2 emission targets for 2020 and beyond put OEMs under pressure. Achieving limits gets more difficult due to new drive cycle and larger vehicles (SUV share).
The Power Door Control is a key element to realizing our fully smart autonomous door system. The trend towards automated driving is pushing the demand for autonomous doors, as driverless vehicles must be able to open and close their doors without operators or door handles.
The Body Control Unit is responsible for many comfort functions in the vehicle. Our units can take over regular body functions and can be tailored for gateway, door-control and HVAC functions. They provide exterior and interior lighting, vehicle access, terminal control, washer and wiper functionality.
The power liftgate control unit lets you open and close your liftgate automatically with programmable height. In combination with the smart access system and/or a capacitive kick sensor integrated into the bumper, easy hands-free opening and closing can be realized.
To efficiently control the increasing number of components and functions installed in the door zone such as switches and sensors, actuators and interior lighting components, many vehicle manufacturers are implementing dedicated Door Control Units (DCUs).
The rising amount of functions available in today’s vehicles is leading to both a more complex electronic architecture and to an increasing number of involved electronic control units (ECUs).
With our control units, we offer advanced and sophisticated technical solutions for modern high quality vehicles. Our expertise covers both hard- and softtops as well as electric motor and hydraulic system control. In addition to the smart control of convertible roofs, our solutions are capable of integrating a multitude of special functions.
Our Climate control technologies ensure a pleasant atmosphere in the vehicle even under adverse ambient conditions. We can implement a climate system with multiple temperature zones in the vehicle. Moreover for electric-powered vehicles, we have a bespoke climate control in our portfolio.
With the Passive Start and Entry (PASE) solution it is possible to access the vehicle and start the engine without having to hold the key in your hand.
From now on, driver and passengers can enjoy the highest level of comfort and safety functions thanks to our intelligent seat control units.
In addition to the basic functions such as seat heating, air-conditioning or memory seats, specially developed pneumatic seating systems are also available. All functions and systems can be combined in different ways.
Our generic Universal Control Module (UCM) has been designed for sunroof, rollo and sunblind applications with a single motor design.
