Autonomous Driving by Paravan

Space Drive offers fail safe, street legal, and million Km tested driving

The primary mechanical functions of throttle, brake and steering haven’t changed for a long time. They dominate so far the "look and feel" in the vehicle interior and the traditional driving. We are about to change that. Space Drive is "real and ready" for high and fully automated driving a drive-by-wire technology. Tested in the production vehicle, in prototype and in the driving simulator, TÜV-tested and approved for road use. The evolution of X-by-wire technology. With Space Drive, we are already on the road. Worldwide, we have collected more than 120 million kilometers of experience with the system in the last 10 years. Experience that we have collectively  in the development of our systems worldwide.  Our limited mobility customers now drive every day with our system to work, to therapy or the cinema with friends.  Not on a closed test track, but on normal city streets, and on the highway.
