ZF/Cognata/OptimalPlus team for enhanced ADAS validation

By Simon Warburton | 8 November 2019

ZF is collaborating with Israeli technology companies, Cognata and OptimalPlus for plant operations management and enhanced efficiency of ADAS validation operations.

"We believe Israel is one of the hotbeds for tech innovations," said ZF Corporate R&D SVP, Dirk Walliser.

"At ZF, we seek to work jointly with this ecosystem to develop technologically advanced solutions that will shape future mobility and create value-added affiliations and market catalysts."

ZF's collaboration with Cognata is in the area of ADAS raw data management and transformation. ZF will be working with OptimalPlus to improve plant performance and jointly bring specialised software products in the future.

ZF has been tapping into Israel's tech ecosystem for many some time, working with Mobileye, an Intel Company for the supply of forward-facing intelligent cameras and underlying software in the Advanced Driver Assistance space.

The companies have worked together to develop both single lens cameras and the Tri-cam, the industry's only three lens intelligent camera.

ZF and Mobileye are also jointly developing advanced Level2+ automated driving systems for light vehicles.
