Paravan - New CO-Sponsors Of The Gooix Mercedes AMG C-Coupe Driven By Pascal Wehrlein

After finishing his first DTM season last year, Wehrlein visited the PARAVAN mobility centre in Aichelau, where he posted a test lap of the PARAVAN circuit, using Paravan's new SPACE DRIVE 2 drive-by-wire system. PARAVAN will work closely within the framework of the partnership with Mercedes-Benz DTM partner HWA to share and develop technological innovations. Transfer of technology acquired through motor racing will form an essential part of this cooperation.

Since 1998, PARAVAN founder Roland Arnold has been developing innovative products to enable disabled people to get mobile, and the power of invention is what drives PARAVAN. Some 140 employees develop and produce a variety of products for the disabled, including cars adapted to their particular needs, electric mobility scooters, training equipment to aid mobility, plus the world's first drive-by-wire, road-legal car that utilises active servo motors to reduce effort on the part of the driver, a joystick steering system with many in-built safety features.

PARAVAN vehicle technology for the disabled has produced a fail-safe engine management and control system that can be flexibly implemented for a variety of safety-related industrial applications. This engine control unit forms the core technology behind automated driving in agriculture, in situations where disabled persons need aid and as a basis for the far-sighted aim of automating driving in traffic.

All products and services provided are designed to help disabled persons hold down a job and participate actively in community life without requiring outside help. Paravan GmbH is not only a global leader in this segment but also actively seeks to support disabled persons and those who lack mobility due to old age. The company's mission is to improve the quality of life of these people.

Pascal Wehrlein:
"I think what PARAVAN are doing is brilliant and I personally regard it as being extremely important that a company like PARAVAN are doing their bit to make the everyday lives of disabled persons easier. I drove a car with a joystick for the first time last year whilst visiting the Aichelau mobility centre and was very impressed by the technology. It took me just under four seconds more to cover the company test track using space-drive technology and joystick than it did in a car with a steering wheel, which is a fine testament to the fantastic work being done there."
