5 reasons why you need the MXsteerHiL for your steering development

For vehicle engineers, experiencing steering feel is essential for evaluation. Imagine being able to experience, evaluate and apply this steering feel much earlier in the development phase and without a vehicle. With the MXsteerHiL you experience the real steering feel at an early stage at your desk or in the lab and not – as usual – only in the prototype vehicle. The differences in steering feel can be measured and calibrated with the MXsteerHiL. Especially in automated driving, the MXsteerHiL allows you to enter development with a high degree of maturity. Sounds unimaginable? It isn’t. Because that is our…

Using the design thinking method to create the ideal head-up display

Test person designs his own head-up display

Kempten. The head-up display (HUD) is definitely a driver assistance system that triggers true enthusiasm among the majority of users. In addition to this euphoria, it contributes to greater safety on the road by projecting important information directly into the driver’s field of vision. This is because the car driver is not distracted by displays in the instrument cluster, the on-board computer or the navigation system display. However, an earlier subject study at Kempten University of Applied Sciences showed that the current HUD concept still has great potential for improvement from the customer’s point of view. Therefore, a study was…
