System Overview

AEVIT 2.0® SYSTEM OVERVIEW

AEVIT 2.0® is the fourth generation to AEVIT® “Drive-by-Wire” driving control systems, featuring the latest technological enhancements to user convenience, reliability, versatility, serviceability and safety.

These “new” driving control systems are sold as totally “Integrated” units that contain both Primary and Secondary control options for virtually any motor vehicle with power assisted steering and brakes.

What’s the difference? …read below.

PRIMARY CONTROLS

 

…are the driver input devices necessary for controlling the Gas/Brake and Steering functions of a motor vehicle. The “plug and play” design of AEVIT 2.0® allows you to build your system with the input devices that fit your physical needs. If your needs should change in the future, simply plug in a different input device.

A brief explanation of how AEVIT 2.0® “drive-by-wire” Input Devices control your vehicle is given below:

  • “Drive-by-wire” means that the movements made by the driver with the steering Input Device (joystick, yoke, wheel, etc.), is not transmitted mechanically via the steering column, through to the steering rack, and then to the front wheels as in conventional control.
  • Instead, the driver’s physical movement on the steering Input Device, is sensed and converted into a digital electronic signal that is transmitted to intelligent Drive Modules that in turn command intelligent Electromechanical Servos to steer the front wheels. The same method of control is applied to the braking and acceleration of the vehicle.

SECONDARY CONTROLS

…are all other electro-mechanical functions of the motor vehicle such as lights, wipers, shift, etc.. The “compact flash upgrade” drive of AEVIT 2.0® allows you to load your system with the secondary switch inputs that fit your physical needs. If your needs should change in the future, simply plug in a different compact flash card to access additional secondary switch functions.

A brief explanation of AEVIT 2.0® Secondary Control capabilities in your vehicle is given below:

  • All vehicle functions other than steering, acceleration, and braking… are called secondary controls.
  • To fully realize the capability of AEVIT 2.0®, or “by-wire” control systems, many/all of these secondary controls such as ignition/start, wipers, turn signals, hi/lo beams, shifting, park brake, etc., must be operated in a more convenient manner.
  • This most probably is due to “range of motion” and/or required effort… or possibly you require multiple, alternative ways of accessing those vehicle functions.
