Three demonstration projects from Kvaser, a couple of demos from RA Consulting, a warm welcome and full support from local Kvaser QSR, Opsoc, combined to make a success at 2018 Automotive World at Nagoya, Japan for all concerned.
Hiroshi Takahashi, founder and business manager of Opsoc, a specialized distributor of CAN solutions, commented: “This was a perfect example of how Kvaser’s network can work together to create mutual success. With 17,000 visitors in total to the show and a nearly-constant footfall on the Opsoc stand, there was a very respective number of leads and business generated, considering this was the first time Automotive World had visited Toyota’s hometown.”
Derek Sum, technical support lead for Kvaser China, supplied three demos for the show. The first used RA Consulting’s DiagRA X and Silver Scan-Tool diagnostics tool-box connected to an ECU via a Kvaser Ethercan Light. The Ethercan communicated with a pair of Kvaser Air Bridge Light units, which in turn were connected to a Kvaser Blackbird attached to a mobile phone. The latter ran an application that Derek implemented in Android. In the second demo, the Kvaser Memorator Pro 2xHS v2 ran a live t-program simulating ECU controls, whilst the third demo illustrated the difference between Classical CAN and CAN FD signals, highlighting the ability within Kvaser CANKing to switch quickly between different CAN signal types.
Commented Derek: “I think this is the first time in my long exhibition experience that I created and ran so many live demos simultaneously, but it proved very effective for the audience in question. Hiroshi provided top-class support for the show; it was a pleasure working with such a great ambassador for Kvaser.”
