Automated Driving is a growing trend, driven by cost reduction targets, driver short- ages, and rising demand for transport services.
Knorr-Bremse’s modular Highly Automated Driving (HAD) portfolio ranges from Minimal Risk Manoeuvre through to Mission Complete products.
Knorr-Bremse is systematically pursuing the development of HAD systems. By preference, the company says HAD development projects take the form of partnerships with specialists.
Tried and tested expertise in vehicle dynamics (including driver assistance and high-availability braking and steering systems) puts Knorr-Bremse in an ideal position to support such projects.
Bernd Spies, member of the executive board of Knorr-Bremse AG and responsible for the
Commercial Vehicle Systems division, regards the Automated Driving industry trend as one of the top development priorities for OEMs.
“As a technology leader in driver assistance systems, including brake control and many others, Knorr-Bremse has an absolute understanding of the specific vehicle dynamics of commercial vehicles. This has resulted in a broad range of driver assistance solutions, right through to the systems that make Highly Automated Driving possible,” explained Spies.
“This focus on innovation is firmly embedded in our R&D roadmap, making us the ideal systems partner for Highly Automated Driving development programs.”
