As Seen In AutoBeat
ZF: From Now on, Hybrid-Ready Transmission Development
This leading supplier of transmissions has decided that it will no longer develop units that can’t be deployed in hybrids. We find out why on “Autoline After Hours”
Yes, Hybrids Still Matter
Hybrids—mild, full and plug-in—are likely to continue to be important as the automotive industry makes the transition to full electrification. An examination in three parts.
Tech: NVIDIA’s Level 2 system; 3D sees the light; A Fish-like Camera
NVIDIA’s Level 2 system has Conti, ZF on board. A 3D solution that sees the light and could be nearly as fast. A camera that sees like the fishes. Toyota aims to smarten China’s car industry.
ZF and the Development of Tech for Autonomy
As executive vp with global operational responsibility for the Global Electronics business and Occupant Safety Systems businesses within the ZF Active and Passive Safety Technology division of the ZF Group, Christophe Marnat has his proverbial plate full, especially nowadays when there are burgeoning efforts on behalf of OEMs and suppliers like ZF to develop the technologies that are related to ADAS, all the way to the point of providing Level 4 or Level 5 technology.
The Evolution to Autonomy
According to Continental’s Karl Haupt, the move to automated driving is one that will come in increments, not sudden disruptions.
ZF: The Future is Now
This supplier is working hard to develop the digital, electrical and electronic technologies necessary to supplement the mechanical systems that it already provides in order to meet the needs of a rapidly transforming industry.
Bosch, ZF and NVIDIA
Although automotive suppliers Bosch Rexroth Corp. (bosch.com) and ZF Group (zf.com) are competitors, they have one thing in common: as both companies help drive automated driver assistance systems (ADAS) technologies forward, both companies are working with NVIDIA (nvidia.com), the manufacturer of graphics processors.
Driving Toward Vehicle Automation
The building blocks necessary for vehicle automation are falling into place, but will the transition be swift or steady?
Airbags on the Outside
Airbags are seemingly everywhere on the interior of vehicles. But what about on the outside? One day we could see them there, too.
Technical Developments out of Friedrichshafen & Beyond
ZF (zf.com) is working to develop technologies that will contribute to safer, more-efficient, and, yes, even automated driving. And we had the chance to literally take these for a drive.
Powertrain Technology: Acknowledging Advances
There is a lot going on in the powertrain arena, both in terms of new transmission technology that is being developed for not only the race tracks of the world, but for the street, as well as in the process and technology realm, where creating better performing product is paramount. Here’s a look at a slice of some of what’s been happening of late.
