A Complete

Drive-by-Wire Solution

The Dataspeed By-Wire Kit is a complete hardware and software system that allows seamless electronic control of a vehicle’s brake, throttle, steering, and shifting to enable testing for autonomous vehicle applications.

All kits are engineered and assembled in the United States to ensure thorough quality inspections. In addition, each module is constructed of proven, industrial-grade hardware.

The OEM vehicle controls are well understood, allowing the kit to seamlessly integrate into the vehicle’s CAN buses and other electrical interfaces.

All production-level safety features remain intact and fully functioning. 

Our plug-and-play kits can be installed within a day, allowing your engineers to get up and running quickly on their algorithm, sensor, or data research.
