Knowing Your Application Areas, Developing Robust Solutions
„Special-purpose vehicles are safe, reliable and of robust construction. These are features you expect as a manufacturer from our software components as well. Therefore, we keep the entire range of applications for your vehicle in view right from the beginning.“
The wide variety of special-purpose vehicles is dominated by the use of CAN and the derivative protocol SAE J1939 – areas where we feel at home. And what about systems that are not compatible with each other? We support you with comprehensive system analysis and implement customized gateway solutions.
As a manufacturer, the diverse application scenarios and extreme environmental conditions of special-purpose vehicles must be considered in product development, while still maintaining a lean development process. This is best achieved by modeling the very complex systems. From the beginning ITK analyzes the various application scenarios and model use cases to lay out the system and software for it. Through model-based methods, we achieve early verification and validation of functions.
Because special-purpose vehicles operate under extreme and unpredictable conditions, functional safety is extremely important. Considering the overall system, we develop in conformance with IEC 62061 and ISO 13849 in order to avoid malfunctions and their consequences. You also benefit from the knowledge gained through our automotive and aviation experience.
