TRW To Highlight Safety Leadership On The Road To Semi-Autonomous Vehicle Functions At IAA Motor Show 2013

LIVONIA, Mich., July 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. (NYSE: TRW) is highlighting how its most advanced active, passive and integrated safety technologies are laying the foundation to enable semi-autonomous driving at this year's Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA), International Motorshow in Frankfurt, Germany.

Among the full suite of technologies to be displayed are driver assist systems including TRW's next generation S-CAM 3 video camera and AC1000 radar; intelligent controllers such as TRW's safety domain ECU which can integrate multiple chassis and driver assist functions; actuators including integrated brake control and electrically powered steering; and adaptive occupant safety technologies and improved rear seat safety solutions.

Peter Lake, executive vice president sales and business development for TRW Automotive, explained: "The automotive industry is entering a period of immense change as the market aims to significantly reduce the number of road related fatalities this decade and beyond. While advanced safety technologies have been offered on luxury vehicles for several years, their fitment is now being spurred across multiple vehicle segments by a combination of regulatory mandates, New Car Assessment Program ratings, insurance incentives and consumer demand.

"Technologies in production today are becoming increasingly sophisticated – in addition to warning drivers they are now actively intervening in critical situations and helping to prevent or mitigate accidents.  We have a technology roadmap to support the move towards semi-autonomous driving: from warning, through assist and up to auto-pilot style driving, with the driver in the loop and the systems able to take control of the vehicle in certain conditions."

TRW will highlight a number of new safety technologies:
  • Next generation S-CAM 3 video camera with six times the processing power of the current S-CAM camera to provide higher performance and a number of advanced new functions.
  • TRW's AC1000 next generation radar family will be suitable for front, rear and side sensing applications and will also be able to detect pedestrians.
  • Next generation Safety Domain ECU to gather, process and act on the increasing levels of data created for high level safety functions
  • Rear seat passive safety technologies

Lake concluded: "TRW has been developing the relevant technologies for many years in anticipation of this changing landscape and is well poised for the mass market adoption of advanced safety systems over the next several years. Work continues to ensure that our systems are affordable for all vehicle segments and in all markets – so that everyone may benefit."
