Bosch Rexroth and Azura Engineering have entered into a full ‘System Integrator’ partnership, the first partnership of its kind for Bosch’s Mobile Electronics business.
The new partnership will give Azura access to the full range of Bosch Rexroth Mobile Electronic hardware, including controllers, displays, sensors, joysticks and software know-how, which will enable Azura to offer a comprehensive electronic control solution to customers.
Azura Engineering is one of the UK’s leading vehicle electronics development companies, specialising in telematics, data-logging, vehicle gateways and diagnostics solutions, for a wide range of vehicles from passenger cars, through to commercial vehicles and industrial mobile plan. Customers include Bentley, Aston Martin, Ford, JCB and Navistar.
The new partnership will enable Azura to expand its product range into the off-highway market which is already an area of expertise for Bosch Rexroth. The company’s mobile electronics equipment is already widely used in demanding on and off highway applications to monitor and control various vehicle systems, including hydraulic and associated body and chassis systems.
“Bosch Rexroth and Azura Engineering have worked together closely in the past on several projects requiring our mobile electronics hardware and their telematics systems,“ says Nick Mobbs, a mobile electronics specialist at Bosch Rexroth. “This new partnership, the first of its kind for Bosch Rexroth’s mobile electronics division, takes our relationship a step-further and allows Azura to access our full range of products, enabling them to provide comprehensive solutions to multiple industry sectors.“
Neil Lyon, Director at Azura Engineering, concludes: “We have developed our telematics products to interface with Bosch Rexroth hardware which provides us with a full remote diagnostics capability. This formal partnership will enable us to fully develop our vehicle solutions to provide a control system with all the assoicated mobile electronics and the added ability to provide an integrated telematics solution.“
