The Rise ofDigitalization

Digitalization is changing the world

  • Internet of Things
  • Automating processes and actions using algorithms
  • Connecting intelligent mechanical systems and digital services

Digitalization is all about integrating and interconnecting artificial intelligence into more and more products, and also endowing it with the capacity to learn. ZF is quickly becoming one of the trailblazers that is revolutionizing mobility.

One example of this is its supercomputer ZF ProAI for vehicles which is able to process enormous volumes of data in real time. But that's not all. Using its capacity for “deep learning,” it independently gathers experience. Abilities such as these are necessary for realizing autonomous driving in day-to-day life.

In addition, ZF is developing new applications such as X2Safe, an algorithm that warns road users of potential collisions before they happen. ZF will also share its increasingly requested digitalization expertise with companies outside the mobility industry.

Digital products

As diverse as the options are for tapping into ground-breaking hardware and software for the future, ZF insists that its own innovations offer clear added value for ZF’s customers and their end customers.

Examples of this include the control units which are critical for developing autonomous driving and also telematics. They make logistics, fleet management and driving more efficient, safer and easier. Other examples are control panels in the cockpit whose touchscreen fields feel like real switches. Added to that are apps that warn drivers, pedestrians and cyclists of the risk of collision long before humans can anticipate them.

Car eWallet

The blockchain-based payment system, Car eWallet, is designed to make "on-the-go charging" of electric cars easier and offers many more advantages as well.
