Rheinmetall has entered into a global cooperation agreement with Paravan to advance autonomous driving technologies.

The companies will work to develop semi- and fully autonomous platforms for military and civilian emergency response applications.

With the goal of protecting, rescuing and keeping people safe in acute high-risk situations and disaster zones the project will draw on Paravan’s extensive experience in developing drive-by-wire control technologies. This technology is a prerequisite for future autonomous driving at the highest level (level 5), where no driver is necessary.

Paravan’s modular, fail-safe systems consist of software, actuators, interface management and integrated sensors, all of which can be integrated into Rheinmetall vehicle systems. Paravan’s special expertise lies in the redundant digital control of steering, accelerating and braking as well as supplying interfaces for digitisation, GPS, control computers, cameras, radar and sensors.

The company’s technology also eliminates the need for a steering column. The project will leverage this to rethink the design of vehicle interiors for entirely new future vehicle concepts.
