Vehicle Connectivity Gateway VCG

Our Vehicle Connectivity Gateway (VCG) proves to be a true all-rounder among the telematics units: Integrated in trailers as well as in agricultural machinery from various manufacturers and connected to different portals, the DSA VCG provides a wide range of diagnostic and telemetry information via mobile online connection to make the work of dispatchers, contractors and farmers more efficient and transparent. For this, the VCG comes with the following communication mechanisms:

  • GSM/UMTS Internet connection to the portal
  • GPS/GLONASS satellite position detection
  • WLAN for local diagnostics & additional functions
  • One-Wire, RS232, digital and analog input for communication with sensors/transmitters
  • CAN and Ethernet for ECU communication and diagnostics

The VCG is a full-featured VCI with ISOBUS-enabled D-PDU API interface (PRODIS.PDU) as well as PassThru functionality. Via RS232 and Ethernet, external devices can be connected and use the VCG as a telemetry unit. In addition, a connection to various portals, e.g. Microsoft Azure-based platforms, is possible. DSA provides trailer and machine manufacturers with a development environment which makes it possible to develop own applications for the VCG.
