Vehicle Electronic Architecture (VEA)

Reduction of complexity in spite of rising demands

Increasing safety, comfort and environment related demands on commercial vehicles exposed the limitations of conventional electronic wiring systems. This new system architecture delivers intelligent modules communicating via CAN BUS downsizing the wiring system and increasing their productive efficiency.

Several modules share the control about different components and communicate in one single computer language. This concept is more flexible, efficient and significantly reliable.

Furthermore it opens up possibilities to embed more and more complex and intelligent interacting functionalities.
