Control Units For Damping and Air Suspension
With the aim of providing large-scale technique and quality also for small-series, niche vehicles and prototypes, we access the product portfolio of the Continental AG. Due to the high share of reutilization of existing hardware and software, we can provide cost-efficient solutions at equally high quality. Depending on customers’ demands, we respectively adjust software, hardware and mechanics. Changes on the control unit itself are made at our plant in Karben. Through existing control units and technologies, we are quickly capable of serving project milestones and can reach shorter project durations. Moreover, it is possible to equip prototypes on short notice. We deliver solutions for diverse applications for motorcycles, vehicles, off-road as well as for special applications. Our hardware solutions support different actuator-, valve- or damper technologies, including proportional valves and magnetorheologic systems.
Gateway and Chassis Domain Controller
We provide differently scalable and diversely applicable control units which can be applied as Gateway or Chassis Domain Controller. Our Gateway connects different bus systems, including Flexray, BroadR-Reach Ethernet and CAN. With the help of a generic basic software, the functionality can easily be configured according to customer needs. An application examples is the integration of control units or sensors in a given architecture. The translation between different transfer protocols is assumed by the Gateway. Through the generic architecture and configurability, the Gateway can be used for prototypes in the short-term. However, it can also be assumed for the series. An extended application example is the function as Chassis Domain Controller. As central supervising and steering entity, it includes a multitude of software applications. The provision of such a hosting platform from safety-relevant applications to ASIL-D belongs to one of our core competencies. Simultaneously, we assume the component integration and deliver an integration framework for enabling an integration on the behalf of the customer. The increasing amount of driver assistance functions requires ever efficient processors and control units. Besides safety-relevant applications, CPU-intensive as well as image processing applications have to be integrated. For these applications, we are already working on the next generation hardware, combining both worlds. Together with our customers and respective to their demands, we choose a technology and supply customized as well as cost-efficient solutions.
