  • Schaeffler presents its innovative XTRONIC Control Unit as a basis for autonomous driving
  • The Control Unit is not dependent on any specific platform, and it ensures a comprehensive range of safety, monitoring, operating, and comfort functions
  • The solution is in volume production for several global OEMs

Remote monitoring and control are especially important for autonomous vehicles. However, such functions have thus far only been available in isolated systems or else have been dependent on specific platforms. The XTRONIC Control Unit on the other hand combines safety, monitoring, operating, and comfort functions in a single system. The innovative system also makes a convincing case thanks to its wide range of interlinked, integrated components – from entertainment systems through to condition monitoring for vehicle components. The reliable interlinking of innovative driver assistance systems together with radar, lidar, ultrasound, and even artificial intelligence thus provides the technological basis for autonomous driving.

Integration across platforms

The XTRONIC Control Unit allows digital control and monitoring to be combined in a single application for smartphones, tablet PCs, and smartwatches. The most important data are thus always available in the cloud and can be accessed from anywhere via mobile device. It doesn’t matter what type of vehicle platform is used for the implementation of the connectivity tools based on the control unit. Applications include not only (partly) autonomous vehicles but also commercial vehicles and motorhomes. The control unit recently went into volume production for several global OEMs to use in these fields of application.

CampConnect – the digital control system for campervans

At the IAA, Schaeffler will be demonstrating the advantages of this system using a campervan as an example. “CampConnect” is based on the XTRONIC Control Unit and allows comfort and safety functions in campervans and caravans to be digitally controlled. For example, end customers can access the full range of control functions and carry out status checks via smartphone while they are on the move. The owner can thus check the fuel level and the temperature, for example. Condition monitoring and predictive maintenance of components ensure availability and provide the basis for intelligent maintenance planning for both vehicles and entire vehicle fleets. If a break-in attempt occurs, an alarm is also immediately sounded.
