Advanced sensor technology, smart control systems and modern connectivity solutions: For everything from automated to autonomous driving, complex technology is in demand. However, it is not just a question of automated vehicles being able to set themselves in motion. In the future, safety will continue to be the top priority, and passenger comfort will become even more important.
The trend toward automation is not limited to passenger cars. Companies like ZF have long been working on driver assistance systems for cars, but also on solutions for automated commercial vehicles and autonomous transport systems for local public transport.
Not everyone is enthusiastic about the opportunities that autonomous driving is promising to us. Some are afraid of losing the fun of driving, and others are warning against the threat of hackers or pointing out difficult legal and ethical issues.
Autonomous mobility, mobility as a service, software-defined vehicles: The mobility of the future will evolve rapidly in some areas, bringing to the market new players, but also new opportunities.
