ZF TRW—a global leader in vehicle safety, powertrain systems and chassis controls—is active in all three megatrends driving personal mobility, says Manfred Meyer, vice president of Global Braking Engineering:

            • Efficiency. ZF TRW has introduced a regenerative braking system for electric cars that captures heat otherwise be wasted during braking. Meyer says the system increases the energy efficiency of braking to nearly 100%.

            • Safety. Automatic braking systems developed by ZF TRW can detect potential crashes, adjust the suspension and apply the brake faster and with maximum force to shorten safe stopping distances.

            • Autonomy. Meyer says automated braking, parking and steering systems will be deployed step by step to enable to eventually enable fully self-driving cars sometime after 2020.
