Preh Car Connect shows solutions for networking utility vehicles







(2016/09/29)Dresden/Hanover. Preh Car Connect GmbH, a company of the Preh Group, presents the topic vehicle connectivity as the focus theme of its fair presentation at the IAA Commercial Vehicles 2016. In Hall 16 (Booth A40) the Preh Division from Dresden presents a Connec-tivity Box, which is conceived as the basis of vehicle-to-vehicle  and  vehicle-to-X communication. It permits both the data exchange of utility vehicles  and  cars among each other  and  the communication of trucks with traffic control systemsspecific traffic junctions. Further product innovations of Preh Car Connect on show in Hanover include a navigation demonstrator which pre-sents Connected Cloud Services, Hybrid Navigation  and  a 3D map presentation  and  is based on a series navigation device for the Volkswagen Group.

“That trucks driving behind each other can practicallytogethera train by data networking  and  then drive autonomously on our motorways is still a matter of the future. But technically we have already created the basis for vehicles to link up  and  communicate,” says Stefan Gottschlag, Managing Director  and  CTO of Preh Car Connect GmbH.

At Preh Car Connect – the former TechniSat Automotive – the devel-opment team has worked on preparing the communication between future vehicles. As the key result, Preh presents the “Connectivity Box” which is on show in Hanover  and  already permits communication vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-X  and  vehicle-to-infrastructure today. The product features include a Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), LTE  and  UMTS as well as WLAN 2.4 GHz / 5 GHz / 2.4 GHz MIMO  and  Bluetooth 4.1 Low Energy. Dynamic adjustment to changing traffic situations, spacing regulations, communication with traffic control systems  and  traffic lights as well as traffic jam  and  collision warnings can be implemented reliably in the Connectivity Box.

“In the near future the focus will be on assisted driving  and  the in-crease of driving safety  and  comfort in the utility vehicle cockpit”, says Stefan Gottschlag. Here, Preh Car Connect GmbH offers system solutions from a single provider together Preh GmbH in Bad Neustadt a.d. Saale which specializes in HMI solutions.
