Highway Driving Assist is designed to allow you to drive on the highway while the vehicle controls the lane-keeping and speed/safe distance management.


  • The driver is required to monitor both surrounding traffic and system status and can override the system at anytime (SAE level 2 automation).
  • The longitudinal control can help manage vehicle speed and maintain safe distance to the leading vehicle; braking actuation is performed by ZF’s high performance electronic braking systems, or by integrated brake control in the case of vacuum-less braking systems.
  • The lateral control can help maintain vehicle position in the lane; actuation is performed by ZF’s well-established, high-bandwidth belt drive or column drive electric powered steering products
  • Addresses trends toward partially-automated driving functionality and collision avoidance
  • Helps relieve the driver from monotonous driving tasks on highways and rural roads, while keeping him involved in more demanding tasks, such as lane changes.
  • Helps to enhance vehicle and occupant safety
  • Provides collision mitigation or even collision avoidance to help improve road safety
  • May improve fuel economy by minimizing hard acceleration / deceleration
