Remote Vehicle Access & FileSync

"Faraway but efficient."

Remote Vehicle Access is a digital service that has been specifically designed for vehicle testing applications. It is a professional end-to-end system solution for enabling a full-access remote connection to a test vehicle that not only allows data to be read but also to be flashed to. The desktop content of the Car PC is sent to the office computer via the connectivity gateway and a 4G data connection. This gives the test engineers remote access to the application parameters of the respective vehicle function, enabling them to change the parameters as needed and directly view the effects on the measurement data regardless of where the vehicle is located.

In addition, file synchronization provides the option to synchronize the data between the Car PC and Calponia.

Remote Vehicle Access is especially valuable for complex diagnostics and calibration tasks that require the expertise from various experts in different areas.

Using RVA for calibration we can now see performance improvements in our cars in a matter of days that took us several months in the past.
