Technologies for Sustainable Passenger Transport

Electric buses with drivelines from ZF have already completed millions of kilometers on the world's roads. As a one-stop shop for a variety of turnkey electric and hybrid driveline systems, ZF helps to reduce CO2 emissions across a wide field of possible applications, from buses for urban public transport to coaches for long-distance tours.

From automated manual transmissions to emission control systems, intelligent ZF technology can improve fuel efficiency, reduce carbon footprint and minimize maintenance downtime.

Innovative chassis and steering technology increase comfort, while advanced driver assistance systems, state-of-the-art braking and stability control systems make buses safer for passengers, pedestrians and other road users.

Highlight Products

Electric Portal Axle AxTrax AVE

The electric portal axle AxTrax AVE with integrated wheel hub drive is the solution for electric buses, hybrid buses and trolleybuses. It enables to solo buses as well as articulated buses full-electric and zero-emission driving. The ZF system with inverter and the EST 54 electronic control unit with proprietary ZF software provides vehicle manufacturers with a system package that is designed for cost-effectiveness and efficiency.

OnGuardACTIVE

This lean ‘radar-only’ active safety system assists truck and bus drivers in recognizing and responding to dangerous driving scenarios that could lead to a rear-end collision with a moving or stationary vehicle ahead - even in low visibility conditions.

Electric Central Drive CeTrax

Buses and trucks should be fast and effective as well as – today more than ever – clean and quiet! Logistics companies and transport operators demand low-cost, low-emission vehicles. Especially for conventional driveline arrangements, ZF offers its CeTrax electric central drive.

Collision Mitigation System for City Buses

The industry’s first OE-independent CMS solution specifically engineered for city buses operated in complex urban environments serves the increasing safety demands of the public transport sector. The system can actively respond to vehicles, bicyclists, and pedestrians in or entering the path of the vehicle to help avoid or mitigate impending collisions, while protecting unsecured bus passengers.

OnGuardACTIVE

This lean ‘radar-only’ active safety system assists truck and bus drivers in recognizing and responding to dangerous driving scenarios that could lead to a rear-end collision with a moving or stationary vehicle ahead - even in low visibility conditions. The system monitors the traffic situation ahead and warns the driver of imminent collisions. If the driver does not take corrective action, OnGuardACTIVE is able to autonomously apply up to full braking. ​

Electronic Braking System

This advanced brake control technology transfers the driver’s deceleration request electronically to all braking system components to shorten response time, balance brake forces and provide efficient brake management between service and endurance brakes.
