A separate CIVD working group developed a BUS system specifically tailored to the requirements of the caravanning industry. This created the necessary prerequisites for setting up a common platform for creating, maintaining and servicing a uniform data bus system in the caravanning sector. The “Kooperationsvereinbarung CI-BUS” (CI-BUS Cooperation Agreement) sets out the necessary requirements.
The use of the caravanning industry BUS in more and more leisure vehicles corresponds to the current industry trend towards increasing digitalisation. Innovative helpers such as wireless control are increasingly finding their way into caravans and motor caravans. This means, for example, that heating or air conditioning can be operated quite simply via laptop, tablet or smartphone. This type of control contributes both to increased comfort and improved energy efficiency.
Innovations such as the CI-BUS contribute to the future viability of the caravanning industry and continue to offer enormous innovation potential.
In the meantime, 67 CIVD members on four continents have signed the CI-BUS cooperation agreement, clearly demonstrating the trend: the caravanning industry is becoming digital.
