Mobile Automation

Let us develop your product! From the moment your idea is born all the way to production!

embeX develops complete system solutions and products, including reliable and functionally safe electronic controls, drives and sensors as well as their firmware and software. For mobile applications, we take into account the customer-specific requirements and the relevant standards in the respective target markets.

At embeX, the Mobile Automation sector covers the following application areas:

  • Outdoor
    • Agricultural and forestry machinery
    • Construction machinery and mobile machines
    • Special vehicles and municipal vehicles
    • Small electric vehicles such as e-bikes
  • Indoor
    • Industrial trucks and transport systems for intralogistics
    • Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) and Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMR)

Wherever intelligent control, sensor and actuator solutions provide more safety and relief for the operator, e.g. through semi-autonomous or autonomous solutions, we are your competent and reliable partner. We develop efficiently, based on innovative and proven technologies:

  • Electrification and digitalisation of previously mechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic solutions.
  • Industry 4.0: IoT and networking of components in the system (e.g. precision farming, smart farming, M2M communication)
  • Communication interfaces such as ISOBUS
  • Predictive maintenance, remote services, condition monitoring

Engineering Services

As a development service provider, we offer everything from a single source within the scope of project implementation. From the holistic view through system engineering to individual components, we develop hardware, software and mechanical solutions. This includes the complete life cycle from specification to verification and life cycle management. Through our certification service for functional safety, embedded security, market-specific and radio approvals, we prove compliance with the requirements.

We design and develop systems and components independently or in partnership with our customers' development team.

Series Production and Life Cycle

  • Once the development has been completed, we expertly adjust your production - or that of an EMS - and support your product throughout its entire life cycle.
  • We take the pressure off your team by providing competent support for your successful brand-name products.
  • In the event of component discontinuations, we will help you updating your products.
