MUNICH – How systematically is Knorr-Bremse, the global market leader for braking systems and other rail and commercial vehicle systems, pursuing the development of Highly Automated Driving (HAD) systems? The answer is: very.

By preference, 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.

To demonstrate these strategies and technologies, accompanied by virtual presentations, Knorr-Bremse is inviting visitors to the company’s exhibition booth at IAA TRANSPORTATION on September 20-25 in Hanover, Germany (Hall 12, Booth C21).

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. He is very familiar with Knorr-Bremse’s turnkey systems solutions, commenting: “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. This focus on innovation is firmly embedded in our R&D roadmap, making us the ideal systems partner for Highly Automated Driving development programs.”
