Together with its many partners, ZF supplies camera and radar technology and advanced components for both the passenger car and commercial truck markets, the latter being especially suited for the move to more complex driver-assistance systems, according to Dan Williams, director of ADAS & Autonomy at ZF. “The business case in commercial vehicle for reduction in driver hours of service, fuel cost reduction and safety have strong economic incentives to adopt ADAS/automated driving technology. Additionally, the regulations placed on the industry will require our customers to utilize certain solutions,” he said.

ZF is working on both highly automated “revolutionary” systems and on “evolutionary” driver-assistance systems that are increasingly complex, he said, citing the supplier's OnTraX lane keep assist that will launch in 2020 with its first major OEM customer. Williams spoke with TOHE at the recent NACV Show in Atlanta, and he's scheduled to participate in a Commercial Vehicle Safety technical session at the SAE Government/Industry Meeting taking place January 22-24, 2020, in Washington, DC (www.sae.org/attend/government-industry/).
