The new generation door control units by Brose ensure quieter, safer ride
Mobility is undergoing a transformational change. Vehicle connectivity, along with the ever-increasing introduction of electronics in vehicles and autonomous driving are completely changing the way conventional mobility players operate. Brose's new set of control units aims to integrate all door functions from window regulator to collision protection among others. The company claims that the move will cut down on elements such as cost and weight involved as well as space, while introducing functions like noise cancelling and will go into series production by 2025. Brose will showcase its prowess at IAA show Frankfurt, to be held from September 12-22 under the banner ‘Enabling Future Mobility'.
Among the biggest challenges automotive stakeholders face as they progress towards future of mobility is electronic competence, wherein collecting and analysing data will be required in real time. Door control units by Brose manage all functions in door locally and also boast of innovative approach, including voice recognition and pre-processing of all received antenna signals. A single broadband line establishes a connection directly with central control units, thereby eliminating over 30 cables necessary across door interface.
A new radar sensor keeps scanning the vicinity to avoid collisions and monitors installed in doors clearly depict everything in the vicinity in real time. Simultaneously, a speaker control ensures a quieter ride enjoyed by customers, as it offers active noise cancelling and also steps up infotainment system sound.
