Valve Manifold integrating Soft- and Hardware

Autonomous vehicles make crucial driving decisions faster than the blink of an eye. The optical sensors in the vehicle must be clean to ensure safe autonomous driving. As vehicles are becoming increasingly “smarter”, clean sensors will be “mission critical”.

The intelligent valve manifold from KENDRION enables a safe driving experience by reliably cleaning all optical sensors.

Aided by our modular sensor cleaning system in cooperation with our Partner Kautex, LiDAR and cameras are cleaned by air and water and can be protected from contamination. Our product integrates hardware and software and enables functions such as position detection of the valves and communication via BUS.

Field of application

Autonomous driving

To make crucial decisions on the road that ensure passenger safety and comfort, autonomous vehicles heavily depend on sensors, actuators, and processors. These manage sub-systems, power consumption, fuel efficiency, thermal dissipation and more.

Kendrion offers many solutions that support the evolution of autonomous driving. Our smart valve block for sensor cleaning with integrated electronics is a great example. By distributing cleaning fluid to all relevant systems, it keeps the vehicle on the move, in all weather conditions.
