The hybrid vehicle unit is used for voice communication of the vehicle crew with the operators of the control centre, as well as the data communication between applications in the vehicle and those in the control centre.
The product was developed for the use in rescue vehicles and ambulances, but can also be used in other safety-relevant applications. The base is a fanless, robust vehicle computer based on Windows, which can be switched on via various interfaces at as many different communication networks as possible.
All functions of the hybrid vehicle are operated by means of a touch screen, installed close to the driver, via menus with several operating levels. A handset unit or another loudspeaker/microphone combination is available for voice operation. In addition to voice communication, especially data communication is in the foreground. The vehicle crew must be presented with the relevant data sets of the control centre so it is appealing and quick to understand, and they must also be able to send predefined messages and status messages using operations that are as straightforward and uncomplicated as possible.
