Brose | Integrating All Door Functions

A new generation of Brose door control units will integrate all the door functions from the window regulator to collision protection. This will cut costs, save space, and reduce weight and also allow for new functions. With a simple gesture, the side door will open automatically. A radar sensor will scan the environment to prevent collisions. While the car is on the move, monitors in the doors will show the image from the side cameras. At the same time, the interior of the car will be quieter because the speaker control unit will use active noise canceling to reduce road noise and enhance the sound of the infotainment system. The challenges involve the analysis of sensor data and the transmission of image signals, which push conventional electronics architectures to their limits, because large volumes of data need to be sent and processed without any noticeable delay. The new generation of door control units process all the functions locally...
