Hexagon Offers Autonomy Kit for Honda CR-V for Developers

HondaCRV Kit400x275

October 26, 2022

AutonomouStuff, a division of Hexagon, has announced an autonomy kit for the Honda CR-V that can enable autonomy for the mass-market vehicle. The Honda CR-V by-wire kit from Hexagon/AutonomouStuff is aimed at autonomous research and development groups, as well as universities looking to lower their development costs.

The by-wire kit includes the latest PACMod from AutonomouStuff – a control module built internally and used as an interface between the computing system and vehicle. The company said PACMod has been used in autonomous vehicles since 2017 and has continuously improved, making it more reliable and flexible as new hardware and software are integrated. The new Honda CR-V kit includes both right-hand and left-hand versions.

“Programs supporting automated driving research, software development, electrical engineering and more have often faced barriers to obtaining an autonomous platform,” said Kevin Fay, vehicle platforms portfolio manager at Hexagon’s autonomy and positioning division. “With access to a by-wire kit enabling autonomy on mass-market programs like a Honda CR-V, R&D programs can more easily ideate, test and validate their innovations in real-world scenarios.”
