Dear Customers, Partners, and Followers,

As we approach the conclusion of 2023, we want to take a moment to reflect on the year that has passed and share our excitement for what lies ahead in the new year.

The past year has been one of recovery and adaptation. We’ve observed some easing in supply chain issues. While we are not yet back to pre-pandemic levels of supply reliability, the improvements we’ve seen give us hope and confidence as we move forward.

An exciting highlight of this past year has been our collaborative CAN security project with Hochschule Offenburg. Our collaboration with their experts has been a journey of shared knowledge and mutual learning. Their academic approach, combined with our practical industry experience, creates a synergy that helps us provide CAN security solutions at multiple levels.

This two-year endeavour has now received a grant, ensuring the resources required to take our products and services to the next level. This project focuses on enhancing the security of CAN and CAN FD systems as well as all protocols running on it, such as J1939 and CANopen. All results of this partnership will be published. Follow this blog or our LinkedIn page for more information.

One of the most notable changes this year has been our first steps of making use of artificial intelligence. For a small company like ours, the opportunities are very promising. Without dedicated departments for technical documentation, graphic design, or marketing, our engineers have been wearing multiple hats. The introduction of AI tools into these tasks has been transformative, allowing our talented engineers to refocus their expertise on what they do best – developing outstanding products.

If you are interested in learning more about how we utilize AI, see Olaf’s article on his LinkedIn page.

We are excited to step into the new year with a renewed focus on engineering excellence. We look forward to continuing our journey together, solving customers’ challenges, and seizing new opportunities.

Thank you for being a part of our story. Here’s to a prosperous and innovative new year!

Warm regards,

Andy, Chris, and Olaf
