An Automotive-Born Solution

Built on automotive-grade hardware, our DBW kits can be customized for any vehicle type. Our team of ISO-certified engineers will develop a DBW kit that has been rigorously tested for safety, and matches the requirements of your motion planning system. Let us know what type of vehicle you’re working on and we’ll help you with a solution.

Inside Our DBW Kits

Need a turn key solution? New Eagle’s DBW kits are the easy autonomous control system solutions you need to transform your standard vehicle into a DBW vehicle. New Eagle will coordinate with you to purchase the vehicle and then install the kit in our Ann Arbor, MI facility. We’ll coordinate the shipping of your finished vehicle from Ann Arbor to your location, anywhere in the world.

Drive-By-Wire (DBW) kits give you plug-and-play control of throttle, brake, steering and shifting on a production vehicle using production hardware. You can interface your AI system with the DBW kit using a ROS interface over CAN.

All DBW Kits include:

  • Automotive-grade controller
  • Wiring harness
  • Server rack with mounting hardware
  • Power distribution block for controlling 8 relays through ROS to turn on/off sensors
  • USB to CAN interface
  • 500W pure sinewave inverter
  • Secondary 12V battery and charger
  • ROS nodes for communicating with the system (http://wiki.ros.org/pacifica_dbw)
  • License of Raptor-Cal used to flash software updates and adjust calibratable parameters
  • One year of software maintenance updates
  • 40 hours of technical support
