Motorsport as a development booster

NextG advances steer-by-wire technology

Steer-by-wire systems are considered the steering systems of the future. Motorsport plays a crucial role in developing these technologies, as it is essential for testing and further advancement. The extensive data collected over many races provides significant insights for the next generations of Safety-by-Wire technologies. Arnold NextG views the use of steer-by-wire in motorsport as a development accelerator.

Technology testing under extreme conditions

Drive-by-wire technology is at the forefront of Arnold NextG's innovations. "Motorsport serves as the ideal development environment for us to confirm the performance and reliability of the technology under extreme conditions," says Luca Arnold, Founder and Test Driver of Arnold NextG. The data gathered is essential for the next generation of by-wire technology with a focus on autonomous driving at Level 4/5.

Friction data at the core

At the heart of our development efforts are the friction data between the road and the wheel, which Arnold NextG's electronic steering and braking system continuously measures. These data can be transmitted via flexible interfaces to providers of autonomous driving systems and sensor manufacturers. Using appropriate algorithms, assistance and driving systems can safely calculate the driving dynamics of any vehicle. This represents a revolution in the vehicle and mobility industry. The data collected in motorsport also directly contributes to the further development of NX NextMotion, the multi-redundant central control unit.

NX NextMotion
One step ahead

Our flexible modular system enables the implementation of any drive, steer or brake-by-wire requirements, right through to revolutionary system-on-chip (SoC) solutions.
