the products of the ZF group’s commercial vehicles, see, think, and act – and provide the key technologies for Autonomous driving functions, such as the company has announced. This becomes clear with the Innovation Truck, 2016. The concept car realized advanced driver assistance systems – including world’s first brake and back – up assistant for heavy-duty vehicles. For the expansion of your Expertise in the fields of sensor, control electronics and mechatronic systems, the Acquisition of the US company TRW in the year 2015 was an important milestone.
He is continuing currently in addition, the investments by investments and acquisitions. So, ZF of the Lidar specialists, Ibeo, and in addition, the Friedrichshafen-based Software company double slash has been involved.
