HELLA’s passive entry/go systems save you the need to look for you keys and enable hands-free unlocking of the vehicle. The company also offers conventional entry systems for active vehicle locking and unlocking using radio transmitter keys.
In the past, various functions were achieved by a large number of individual control units.
Since developing its first prototypes, HELLA has worked to achieve economical integration of a range of standard functions in comfort ECUs that are interlinked via a CAN network. At the highest level, these comfort ECUs also function as a receiver for the radio remote control.
The transmitters are also developed in-house at HELLA.
The comfort ECU’s advanced system characteristics, e.g. electric steering column lock (ESCL) and immobilizer (latest generation) integration, help to increase anti-theft protection.
While, in itself, active vehicle unlocking and locking by remote control significantly increases comfort and security, the use of the new passive entry/go access and driving authorization system takes this to a new level.
HELLA is also heavily involved in the research, design and development of future access and driving authorization systems, associated components and personalized authentication systems.
