The forward-looking "Flying Carpet 2.0" chassis uses comprehensive sensors and smart algorithms to control damping, braking and steering systems. It thus decouples the vehicle body largely from road unevenness and influences of driving dynamics. In addition to comfort, dynamics and safety also increase. Particularly in the development of fully automated and autonomous driving, comfort is regarded as crucial in order to be able to use the driving time for activities such as reading or relaxing.
Its specific approach of letting vehicles “see, think, and act” makes ZF a provider of system solutions for automated driving. The manufacturer's complete systems include sensors and the ZF ProAI central computer in several performance variants. ZF solutions for different market segments are thus scalable, flexible, and adaptable. This enables car manufacturers to meet the basic requirements of Euro NCAP 2022. Or, as ZF coPILOT, allows automated driving functions at SAE level 2+. For people or cargo movers, the ProAI RoboThink is a variant that makes levels 4 and 5, i.e. driverless driving, possible.
