Urbanization

The gradual increase in the proportion of people living in urban areas continues to drive the mass transportation of goods and people through public and commercial transportation systems, giving rise to the ‘digital smart city’ and e-mobility.Vision Zero – a world with zero accidents and zero emissions – will only become a reality when all vehicles are electric, autonomous and connected.

Vision Zero

On the road toward this reality, ZF’s all-electric Vision Zero Vehicle is reaching important milestones in the transition phase from assisted to autonomous driving. Innovative safety systems enable the vehicle to see, think and act – even if the driver is distracted. As part of these efforts, ZF has simultaneously addressed two decisive causes of accidents.

E-Mobility

Regulations that set targets for fuel effiency and emissions are strongly influencing automotive, from the way vehicles are manufactured to how they are managed and driven.

Hybrid or pure electric drives offer a number of functions which make driving more efficient. when driving at constant speed or slightly downhill, the combustion engine is switched off and the electric motor takes over vehicle propulsion if required.

  • Start/stop
    Switching off the combustion engine whenever it is not required reduces consumption. This is above all the case when the vehicle is at a standstill. Today start/stop systems are therefore even integrated in vehicles without hybrid drive.
  • Recuperation
    When the vehicle decelerates, the electric motor is used as a generator to convert the braking energy into electric energy and to charge the battery.
  • Boost mode
    When full power is required in the hybrid vehicle, the electric motor supports the combustion engine. Advan- tage: For this reason, the latter can already be designed to be smaller and more fuel-efficient in hybrid vehicles – keyword: downsizing.
  • Electric driving
    As soon as electric motors drive the passenger car independently, no more emissions are caused locally while driving – and hardly any noise is generated. These are huge advantages, not least in inner city areas where strict access restrictions for vehicles with conventional drives are becoming more and more common.
  • Sailing
    In driving situations requiring little power input, such as when driving at constant speed or slightly downhill, the combustion engine is switched off and the electric motor takes over vehicle propulsion if required.
