NEW: MicroAutoBox III

Compact and robust in-vehicle prototyping system

The new MicroAutoBox III is the next generation of the established dSPACE MicroAutoBox, a real-time system for performing fast, in-vehicle function prototyping.

Application Areas

The powerful system can be added to or replace an electronic control unit (ECU), and lets you experience and test control functionalities in a real environment. MicroAutoBox III is ideal for many different rapid control prototyping (RCP) applications either as a single demonstrator or for equipping entire test fleets. Examples of application fields are:

  • E-mobility, electrification, and powertrain control
  • Assisted, highly automated, and autonomous driving
  • Chassis, body, and vehicle dynamics control
  • Supervisory and domain control
  • Bus/network gateway and monitoring
  • Noise, vibration, position, and motion control

Key Benefits

The MicroAutoBox III uniquely combines high performance, comprehensive automotive I/O including bus and network support, and an extremely compact and robust design – all for a favorable price. The comprehensive software environment lets you configure, program, and operate the system easily and with minimum effort.

Planned Hardware Variants for First Release

MicroAutoBox III will have the following variants:

  • MicroAutoBox III 1403/1511
  • MicroAutoBox III 1403/1513
  • MicroAutoBox III 1403/1511/1514
  • MicroAutoBox III 1403/1513/1514
