Mobile automation

Advanced automation solutions for mobile machinery – More than just hardware


Automation technology for mobile equipment is currently in a state of transition. Faced with unrelenting demands for higher productivity, the agricultural and construction industries are turning to increasingly automated and networked machinery. B&R solutions allow automation concepts for construction equipment and municipal vehicles as well as for agriculture and forestry applications to be implemented easier than ever. Customers benefit from an easy-to-operate development environment, high-performance real-time operating system and ready-made software components.

Modular X90 control and I/O system


B&R continues to open up new possibilities in mobile automation with its innovative X90 product line for mastering mobile control and I/O tasks. The system’s comprehensive set of standardized components is perfect for implementing flexible automation concepts.


Develop software 3 times faster with mapp Technology


The ability to develop software 3 times faster with mapp Technology is revolutionizing application software for automation. These modular software blocks simplify the development of new programs and accelerate the development time for new machines and systems by a factor of 3.

How is that done? mapp handles these recurring programming tasks by providing preconfigured blocks – basic functions – that are easy to use and that have already been extensively tested. Programmers can then concentrate on their main task: Implementing automation processes in the application software.

A universal engineering tool for all tasks


Automation Studio is B&R's integrated software development environment with tools for all phases of a project. Controllers, drives, communication equipment and HMI devices can all be configured in one environment. That reduces both integration time and maintenance costs. Automation Studio allows PLC programming in all IEC 61131-3 languages, in CFC and C, as well as object-oriented programming in C++. This allows developers to work in the language they prefer.

Tests on real machines and commercial vehicles are costly in terms of both time and money. With machinery growing more complex by the day, the topic of simulation is rapidly gaining significance. B&R provides the appropriate tools with MATLAB/Simulink and MapleSim.

Diagnostics information available any time

B&R automation solutions offer numerous features for diagnostics and service. An integrated tool allows you to view diagnostics information about all B&R hardware on any device with a web browser or via a remote maintenance connection.


B&R’s Secure Remote Maintenance solution makes it easy to service machines and commercial vehicles anywhere in the world from your office or on the road. This remote solution makes it easy to quickly respond to unforeseen problems and accelerates commissioning. As a result, the capacity utilization rate of the system is maximized.

High speed for mobile equipment


Today's mobile equipment continues to push the limits of conventional bus technology, which fails to offer the performance or bandwidth that state-of-the-art automation solutions demand.


POWERLINK offers the required performance and bandwidth and is based on CANopen mechanisms. It is a real-time capable and hardware-independent open source protocol and provides a smooth transition for converting construction and agricultural equipment to an industrial Ethernet solution.

B&R – Global presence and solid partnership

B&R’s slogan is their mission. The pursuit of Perfection in Automation has inspired and guided B&R for over 35 years. For the company, this means developing lasting relationships with our customers, partners, employees and suppliers based on a foundation of mutual trust and measurable benefits as well as developing the best industrial automation solutions. B&R currently employs over 3000 workers and, with over 180 offices worldwide, is never far away.



Through its membership in organizations relevant for mobile automation, B&R actively participates in further developing technology and providing innovation for the industry.
