Series vehicle control unit (VCU)

One control unit – lots of possible applications. The VCU was originally developed as a vehicle control unit for series production. Its architecture and concept, however, mean it is also suitable for other functions.

The VCU is a generic series vehicle control unit for light- and heavy-duty commercial vehicles. Its properties enable it to be used as a vehicle control unit (VCU) as well as for many other functions.

VCU components:

  • VCU Hardware
  • Basic software incl. low-level driver
  • Upon request: complete tool-chain (based on MATLAB/Simulink)
Generisches Seriensteuergerät (VCU)

1. Can be used as a VCU as well as for many other applications.

2. Enables the development of application functions up to ASIL B.

3. When combined with the available tool-chain, the customer can concentrate directly on the application functions.
