In brief: With sMOTION, ZF intends to add an active system to its damping solution portfolio. This system is ideal for meeting the most diverse customer needs. It ensures the highest possible driving comfort as well as the greatest possible driving safety and dynamics. sMOTION is an important contribution to highly automated and autonomous driving. When sMOTION goes into volume-production, ZF will offer not only standard shock absorbers with a fixed characteristic curve and its semi-active Continuous Damping Control (CDC) system, but also the new active sMOTION system. From a technological standpoint, the systems build on one another and the shock absorbers work according to the same basic principle.
