UK debut for ZF’s ‘Concept Cockpit’ at Automechanika Birmingham


ZF Aftermarket’s stand at the forthcoming Automechanika Birmingham will encompass all aspects of its leading triad principle: ‘See. Think. Act.’

Making its UK debut at the show will be ZF’s ‘Concept Cockpit’ – an automated system which simulates the five levels of automated driving.

In addition, the UK market will get its first hands-on experience of TRW branded Electric Blue brake pads – specifically designed for Electric Vehicles along with reduced interior noise as well as brake dust.

The ‘See. Think. Act.’ triad is ZF’s leading principle. ZF applies comprehensive know-how in the design of intelligent systems; providing solutions for megatrends like mobility, safety, efficiency and autonomous driving. ZF expertise combines environmental sensors, such as camera and radar (see) with central electronic control units in the vehicle (think), intelligent mechatronics in the drive, chassis and steering system, then converts insights gained into actions (act).

This innovative driving simulation system will be available for stand visitors to fully immerse themselves in experiencing the five levels of automated driving. This will take ‘drivers’ through from the assisted driving and systems we have in our cars today, through to fully autonomous driving whereby you can sit in the back seat and hold a meeting or have coffee, and the vehicle will take over.
