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.
Body Electronics are an electronic network of systems integrated into the vehicle that performs certain functions. Modern vehicles now contain a large number of subsystems that perform control functions, instrument diagnosis, and safety functions and, e.g., manage the power supply. Components of the vehicle body electronics include sensors and sensor interfaces, activators, and monitoring circuits as well as communication relays. Our tested designs enable optimized use in the interior or under the hood, while our expertise in vehicle networks deliver optimized communication performance.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
