At DAF trucks, all applications (besides the powertrain) are run by the VECU. This controller does all the major calculations and then controls other, smaller controllers to run the applications.Nowadays and in the future, more applications will be added to the truck. In the future, they will need a more powerful controller/computer to perform all these calculations. As the algorithms on the device are becoming very complex.
