The VCU is used to control vehicle functions in complex vehicle wiring systems, or as a gateway between separate CAN buses.
It handles tasks such as analyzing and controlling the lighting system, or providing the required protection against theft. In addition, the VCU is equipped with Wi-Fi and GPS connections that can be used to upload collected data to the cloud, and to access that data, making it suitable for big-data applications. A simple real-world example: When used in e-scooter sharing, the VCU establishes the online connection required for users to rent the vehicle via an app.
The VCU was fully developed in-house, so it can be completely tailored to meet the customer’s wishes and requirements.
