Vinfast will introduce several advanced driver assistance systems that will be used with the ZF. The Vietnamese automaker has confirmed that ZF will equip it with cameras, radar and LiDAR sensors, all working within ZF’s central control unit.
The system will allow VinFast and ZF to achieve Level 2+ autonomy before they can start developing more advanced features including Traffic Jam Pilot, Highway Driving Chauffeur and Automated Valet Parking.
VinFast’s global Chief Executive, Le Thi Thu Thuy said, “The future is electric and automated as we seek to help protect the environment while providing transportation that improves safety, convenience and efficiency.”
For your information, VinFast has developed its automated driving system with ZF in China, Germany and throughout North America and is expected to launch in mid-2022.
The ZF Automated Valet Parking System that will eventually be deployed will rely solely on assigned vehicle sensors and does not require a mapped and instrumented parking structure to operate.
“We look forward to working with VinFast to bring a higher level of autonomy to their light passenger vehicles,” added ZF board of management member Martin Fischer.
Martin ensures that the technology introduced at VinFast enhances the capabilities of all forms of mobility as intended. The design and development of advanced autonomous driving (AD) systems will help drivers around the world enjoy optimized levels of safety, comfort and intelligence.
“This is our vision when we talk about The Next Generation of Mobility and a testament to how we make it happen now,” concluded Martin.
