Expanding its product portfolio of audio systems for off-highway vehicles, the technology company Continental has now launched radios with CAN bus connectivity,
Now the devices can be easily operated thanks to an external display already installed in the vehicle or by using steering wheel buttons. The radio can also be installed in not-so-accessible locations and this is a definite advantage, especially in the cabs of construction and agricultural machinery where space is at a premium.
According to the company CAN bus radios give manufacturers more freedom and flexibility when it comes to integrating radio functionality. And drivers also benefit, because all the information they want is clearly displayed.
The company is also offering a wide range of solutions for digital radio reception, even for retrofitting, so manufacturers and fleet owners will be perfectly prepared for the new European digital-terrestrial radio standard.
