“On the road” around the world

With the experience of thousands of systems "on the road” around the world, the Space Drive II system has become a true revolution of drive-by-wire technology. Safe, reliable and high-performance. The perfect combination of fully developed and sophisticated hardware and functional and individually applicable software. What’s more, the system is multi-compatible thanks to an extremely wide range of interfaces (CAN, LIN, FlexRay) Made by PARAVAN!

The system key facts

The highlights of the Paravan drive-by-wire system
  • Active Redundancy: triple safety and full motor performance even of a control circuit fails
  • Variable interfaces (analog/digital) for connection of various input devices (CAN,LIN,FlexRay)
  • Blackbox in all systems of the controller (error memory)
  • Enough pedal distance and force in all vehicles, even if the vehicle control circuit fails
  • Permanent scanning of the component status
  • Speed-dependent steering facilitates the same driving performance as with power assisted steering at high speeds
  • Better braking at low speeds thanks to automatic adaptation to the pedal distance and force
  • Different throttle curves are available
  • Integrated Interface
  • Can switch between several language options = operation and fault description in the form of comprehensible fair copy and without encoding
  • Optimal and fl exible design to fi t all vehicles
  • Connection for driving school panel
  • The parameters cannot be modifi ed without authorisation
  • Innovative modular system of control elements to match your individuality
  • Ergonomy, operability, fl exibility and durability obtain a completely new perceived value
  • Individually adaptable software package
  • Made in Germany = fast spare parts delivery
  • The SPACE DRIVE technology conforms to all relevant standards and regulations in Europe
  • One-Klick-Support through our innovative completely new designed diagnostic tool
  • ISO-Certified and ECE-R-79 and ECE-R13 according ISO 26262 (ASIL D)*
  • Manufactured according to the highest quality level: IPC-A-600 class 3

* The probabilistic target values according to ASIL D requirements of the ISO 26262-5 chapter 8,9 (SPFM, LFM, PMHF) are achieved.
