So what if, in the future, vehicles themselves were intelligent enough not only to compensate for human errors, but to anticipate and prevent them or even to navigate through traffic without causing any accidents? This goal is within reach. New, innovative software functions are designed to maximize the potential of the already digitally controllable chassis technology. At the same time, innovation leaps in data-based services and functions, artificial intelligence and connectivity will soon be in volume production.
"And ZF is developing the right technology for this vehicle of the future," says Dirk Walliser, Senior Vice President Research and Development, outlining what this means: "It is electric, software-defined, connected to the cloud and part of an entire mobility ecosystem." For ZF, the intelligent car is therefore an important component of "Next Generation Mobility." This means safe, sustainable and efficient mobility that people want and which the company is driving forward with its portfolio and systems expertise.
"Powerful hardware and an innovative approach to software are what make the automobile of the future a reality."
