PARAVAN Space Drive technology – mobility for people with disabilities
You always drive safely with the joystick driving system from PARAVAN
PARAVAN adaptive driving controls enable wheelchair users and people with other physical handicaps to steer and drive a vehicle again. Signals from the driver input devices are transmitted digitally in milliseconds to a servo motor that controls acceleration and braking, and to an additional servo motor for the steering system (drive-by-wire / steer-by-wire). We configure each module separately in accordance with the specific medical condition of the driver. The entire system is multi-redundant (triple redundancy), which means that three control circuits that are completely independent of one another constantly operate in parallel and also monitor each other, ensuring absolutely fail-safe operation. Powerful processors and newly developed servo motors guarantee easy and highly precise handling of the vehicle. If your medical condition changes, we adapt the hardware and software components for you accordingly.
Together with a Driver Rehabilitation Specialist, we choose the right driving controls that best suit your needs. Whether the steering is done with a joystick or a mini steering wheel, or you operate the gas and brake with another joystick or gas/brake lever - we make sure you can drive your vehicle safely and with ease.
Paravan drive-by-wire technology meets the most stringent requirements as defined in the ISO 26262 safety standard (ASIL D) and is also approved for road use in accordance with ECE-R-10, ECE-R-13 and ECE-R-79. In addition, our drive-by-wire control units are manufactured in accordance with IPC-A-600 class 3, which is the highest quality standard worldwide for such equipment.
It goes without saying that our entire company and all of its business processes are also certified in accordance with the DIN EN ISO 9001:2008 quality-management standard.
