An automotive solution to saving time and money

While consumer car manufacturers have the benefit of scale on their side, specialty vehicle makers operate in a highly fragmented market. The requirements and capabilities of an ambulance are very different from those of a fire truck, a snow plow or a taxi cab. Traditionally, they needed a new hardware and/or software configuration for every new specialty vehicle model, resulting in higher design and production costs as well as a time to market of up to 18 months.  

Not anymore. The Smart Gateway Module and FlexConfig app from Flex replaces the need for the traditional custom gateway module altogether and offers a single, highly-configurable box that can be used across any new vehicle.

Find out how one automotive manufacturer is using this innovative solution to reduce production costs and time to market.
