Dresden/Frankfurt. The automotive supplier Preh Car Connect GmbH, a company of the Preh Group, is focusing on Augmented Reality and mirroring technologies as well as vehicle networking with the Connectivity Box at the 67th International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt am Main in Hall 5.1, Stand A26.
According to a recent industry study by McKinsey & Company, networked cars, autonomous driving and e-mobility are the trends that will determine and sustainably change the automotive industry in the near future. According to estimates, 50 million vehicles will be networked worldwide by 2025. Connectivity is becoming increasingly important.
"It is still a dream of the future that, for example, trucks driving one behind the other will link up like trains via data networking and drive autonomously along our motorways. Technically, we have already set the course for vehicles to link and communicate with each other," explains the management of Preh Car Connect GmbH.
At Preh Car Connect GmbH, developers are constantly working on making communication between vehicles fit for the future. As a central result, the "Connectivity Box" will be presented in Frankfurt this year, which already enables communication between vehicle-to-vehicle, vehicle-to-X and vehicle-to-infrastructure today. Product features include Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS), LTE and UMTS as well as WLAN 2. 4 GHz / 5 GHz / 2.4 GHz MIMO and Bluetooth 4.1 Low Energy. Dynamic adaptation to changing traffic situations, distance control, communication with traffic lights, traffic guidance systems and traffic jam and collision warnings can already be reliably implemented via the Connectivity Box.
The company will also be demonstrating the integration of Netrange and Android Auto as well as various mirroring technologies and augmented reality solutions in Frankfurt.
"In the future, the focus will be on assisted driving and increasing driving safety and comfort in the cockpit," says the management. In this subject area Preh Car Connect GmbH together with Preh GmbH from Bad Neustadt a. t. Saale, which specializes in HMI solutions, can offer system solutions from a single source.
