When can a wireless ISObus system
like this be expected to work onsite?
According to Schlingmann,
development is ongoing with pace
and rst pilot installations to be
tested in the eld in 2020.
Concerning the critical choice of
wireless transfers, two technologies
will be used: WLAN for short
distances of up to 100m and, for
distances of up to 1,000 m, the
802.11P standard for V2X (vehicleto
ese standards will, of course, also
be tested during the pilot
installation, including encryption
and functional reliability.
