The ZF Innovation Truck is impressive with its intelligent solutions for heavy-duty transport. Thanks to its TraXon transmission with hybrid module, it is able to drive electrically and locally with zero emissions. On inter-city routes, the Innovation Truck benefits from the TraXon transmission’s GPS module, which automatically selects the shift points that match the topography.
On long-haul journeys, Highway Driving Assist (HDA) ensures that the truck automatically stays in the center of the lane and at the correct distance from the vehicle ahead – which is a real benefit for the driver. Once it reaches its destination, the Innovation Truck can move autonomously in depots. Its 360-degree, real-time monitoring with Sensor Fusion, in conjunction with powerful actuators, guarantees maximum safety – for example when braking in the event that a pedestrian is detected. Autonomous connection and disconnection of the trailer saves time and money and allows the driver to rest for a longer period of time.
The condition of the cargo is already monitored continuously during the journey and is documented in the cloud. Fleet managers value the fact that the TraXon transmission is equipped with predictive maintenance functionality. This means that maintenance or repair work can be integrated into the fleet’s daily routine in advance, with minimal interruptions due to downtime.
