As Seen In Automotive Design & Production

The ZF Vision Zero Vehicle. Based on a VW Sharan, it has an electric driveline and is equipped with sensors and systems that provide driver assistance and enhance overall safety.

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.

The proliferation of safety systems, both active and passive, have created the foundation for vehicle automation. However, unlike claims made via the hype surrounding this technology, it may take decades for its promise to be fully realized.

Driving Toward Vehicle Automation
The building blocks necessary for vehicle automation are falling into place, but will the transition be swift or steady?

ZF TRW has run studies showing that putting airbags on the outside of a vehicle can help reduce the energy not only being applied to the vehicle being hit, but the vehicle causing the collision, as well.

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.
