Mobile Automation

We automate mobile applications, future-proof, robust and scalable. Our systems are based on standards and a modular system. We have the special features of mobile app­li­cat­ions in mind and our systems are certified and tested accord­ingly. Our portfolio includes control units for mobile machines, extrem­ely robust developed and de­signed for 24/7 app­li­cat­ions. CAN, LIN and Ethernet are available as interfaces and in addition to acc­el­er­at­ion sensors the port­folio includes a large number of multifunctional IOs.


Our CAN-capable display solutions are enabling a control and monitoring of vehicle and diagnostic functions in mobile machines at any time. The auto­mation software is al­ways on-board and completes the systems. Pro­gram­ming can be done in C/C++, Qt, AUTOSAR-based or based on ODX data and OTX sequences. Finally, our portfolio also includes sensor solutions with CAN connec­tion for the acquisition and provision of data and information.
