From Corrsys-Datron to Kistler Automotive
In 1982, when the world's first optical speed and distance sensor was introduced, few could have predicted the impact that this breakthrough technology would have on the discipline of
vehicle testing. Over the course of more than two decades, the Correvit sensor has become a standard for accuracy in the measurement of vehicle dynamics.
In the year 2000
two renowned instrumentation manufacturers - Corrsys Korrelatorsysteme and Datron Messtechnik - joined together to build
one company with the aim to best focus synergies and innovations: Corrsys-Datron.
Today's automotive environment rigorously demands a synergy of vehicle safety, performance and economy. The industry must respond to these standards by placing a stronger focus on the
research and development process of the vehicle. The refinements realized ultimately become the advancements that make vehicles safer and more reliable. Mounting pressure from governmental
organizations make it all the more necessary for vehicle control systems such as anti lock braking and electronic stability control to be implemented and effectively measured.
Correvit optical speed/slip angle sensors are used in the development and validation of these systems. Corrsys-Datron placed a special focus on providing turnkey application solutions
to our customers testing needs.
The Kistler Group acquired Corrsys-Datron Sensorsysteme GmbH as its sixth product center in an all-stock transaction on
April 30, 2009. This acquisition enabled Kistler to round off its range of measuring systems for vehicle dynamic testing in automobile development. The optical technology of Corrsys-Datron
is a further asset to the Kistler Group.
Since April 1, 2012 Corrsys-Datron operates under a new company name:
Kistler Automotive GmbH, Competence Center Wetzlar.
Our office, located in Wetzlar, Germany.
