Dr. Christian Wiehen, Chief Technology Officer for WABCO, discusses ADAS, platooning and automated future for trucks.
Thanks to ZF's close-to-the-wheel electric drives, heavyweight vehicles can be operated with zero emissions in city traffic. The benefit: cleaner air and reduced noise levels. More than half of the world’s population lives in cities, making urbanization a global megatrend that is on the rise. Metropolitan cities have to bear the consequences. Air pollution caused by exhaust emissions has become such a problem in some areas that city administrators have to place limits on large diesel-powered vehicles. Even in smaller cities, residents are moaning about the heavy increase in commuter and truck traffic on the roads. They simply long for cleaner air and less noise. In addressing these issues, e-mobility is one of the buzzwords.
