Showcar OEM 2016 with Space Drive
Space Drive Inside - Mobilität der nächsten Generation
Paravan was able to contribute the fail-safe (fail operational) drive-by-wire system Space Drive II to the realisation of an autonomous or semi-autonomous show car for a large German automotive group. The computer unit (ECU) of the Space Drive technology - which fulfils the highest requirements according to the safety standards ISO 26262 ASIL D - ensures redundant control of the primary functions accelerator, brake and steering. The pioneering vehicle study, which was developed on the occasion of a company anniversary of the vehicle manufacturer, can find its way through road traffic completely autonomously controlled by sensors. However, if the driver wishes to actively drive himself, a futuristic steering wheel without a steering column folds out of the dashboard, via which the driver can enter the steering commands to the vehicle "per-wire".
