ZF says it is using the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas continuing this week, as a platform to highlight its position in environmental sensing technology.
Through its ZF TRW division, the company is showing how its developments are helping to enable safety and automated driving features across the full range of vehicle segments.
“Our next generation camera and radar systems offer affordable solutions designed to meet increasingly stringent regulatory requirements for active safety while supporting the evolution toward automated driving,” said ZF CEO, Stefan Sommer.
“Our philosophy is to equip our sensor technology across all vehicle segments – allowing associated safety benefits to be accessible for volume car buyers while we drive technology further in the high-end car segments.”
The S-Cam4 mono-camera features a new form factor and is capable of supporting a wider field of view than the company’s current production cameras, in order to address future market requirements such as Euro NCAP’s AEB tests for crossing bicycles and other vulnerable road users.
The TriCam features a telephoto lens for improved long distance sensing and a fish-eye lens for improved field of view at short range. The combination better supports automated driving functions such as Traffic Jam Assist and Highway Driving Assist.
Both are equipped with Mobileye’s EyeQ4 chipset – offering six times the processing power of the current EyeQ3.
