We develop systems and technologies that ensure mobility now and in the future

For a long time, principal vehicle functions – acceleration, braking and steering – have barely changed in mechanical terms. To date, they continue to dominate the “look and feel” of vehicle interiors and the way driving is perceived. We are in the process of changing that. Space Drive is “real and ready” for highly automated and fully automated driving via drive-by-wire technology and is already offering new levels of mobility to thousands of people whose mobility is restricted. With our PARAVAN Touch and PARAVAN Voice Control systems, we are also offering you new possibilities for operating secondary vehicle systems. We continue to develop and improve our wheelchairs in order to provide even more comfort and safety. We love to invent things – the continuous development of new innovations is part of our DNA. The following sections offer you a glimpse into our world of technology.

Billions of miles "on the road"

Thousands of people on the road

Every day, more than 8,500 people take to the road with our systems around the globe. The Space Drive drive-by-wire system was developed to enable mobility for the most severely disabled and for people with multiple disabilities. It’s also become one of the core technologies for future automated driving systems.

Shades of James Bond

IIn a legendary James Bond film, a vehicle is operated from the rear seat using a smartphone. We thought: Hey, we can do that too! Indeed, our intelligent PARAVAN Touch app can also be used to operate a vehicle remotely.
