Urban Mobility - Field of Application for Space Drive
Mobility in Transition - New Challenges
With digitalisation, the mobility industry is facing the greatest upheaval of the last 100 years. It can only be compared to the change from the horse to the "motor carriage". E-mobility, autonomous driving and connectivity are the buzzwords of the day. Growing populations and overburdened infrastructures pose new challenges for mobility concepts.
A core topic of these new mobility concepts will be the digitalisation of steering and driving functions. Fail-safe and flexible steer-by-wire and drive-by-wire solutions will become the chauffeur in the digital age of mobility. With its Space Drive technology, Schaeffler Paravan is actively shaping this change and developing innovative and forward-looking mobility concepts together with project partners from all over the world.
Examples of realised projects
Where the joystick currently still takes over the control, the driving automation could also be realised via an interface in the Space Drive control unit. An important step towards the mobility of the future. Fail-safety is a key to autonomous driving.
Intelligent steering technology paired with chassis know-how
In addition to innovative steering technology, autonomous mover concepts for urban mobility require sophisticated chassis, drive and platform solutions. At Schaeffler Paravan, we bundle these competencies for holistic autonomous vehicle concepts.
A good example of this is the "Rolling Chassis" from Schaeffler Paravan. It offers an innovative vehicle platform for entirely new forms of autonomous mobility. The platform combines Schaeffler's expertise in highly integrated chassis solutions and electric drive technologies with the drive-by-wire know-how of Space Drive technology to create a groundbreaking innovation for autonomous mobility concepts in urban areas.
Future Platform Rolling Chassis
Adapted to the challenges of the time: The "Rolling Chassis" is a scalable platform that combines various technologies in different dimensions for locally emission-free mobility solutions.
