Scania - Android tablet for HGV driver training

Scania has used an Android driver developed by TK Engineering (TKE) and CAN interfaces from Kvaser to develop a user-friendly tablet solution for HGV driver training.

Until the launch of the HGV driver training tablet, Scania’s driver trainers had to perch between the front seats in order to see the instrument panel and determine exactly how the driver was operating the pedals. Whilst being ergonomically awkward, the practice presented a safety risk. “We realised that in worst case our trainers could be injured in a harsh braking situation,” says Magnus Andersson, Product manager at Scania’s E-Business and New Media.
