DEFINING THE FUTURE OF MOBILITY – TOGETHER
We can’t talk about our proprietary projects; but, we can tell you that we are relentlessly innovating within Nexteer and through joint development projects with:
– Automotive OEMs
– Industry disruptors
– Collaborative, industry peers
NEXTEER + CONTINENTAL: A MOTION CONTROL JOINT VENTURE
CNXMotion is a Joint Venture focused on R&D activities including rapid evaluation, design and prototyping. This collaboration integrates steering and braking for advanced motion control solutions and accelerates R&D and application for both parent companies. Together, we will:
· Benefit R&D activities at both Nexteer and Continental
· Analyze compatibility of advanced steering and braking technologies
· Accelerate advancements in automated motion control applications
· Achieve ideal vehicle dynamics and safety
· Enhance collaboration and breakthrough ideas
In 2020, CNXMotion launched Brake-to-Steer (BtS) – a technology that provides driver safety through an additional layer of directional control for highly automated and autonomous vehicles.
NEXTEER + TACTILE MOBILITY: SOFTWARE COLLABORATION FOR NEXT LEVEL “STEERING FEEL”
In 2021, Nexteer and Tactile Mobility announced their collaboration and Nexteer’s investment in Tactile Mobility.
This collaboration focuses on motion control software to enable advanced software offerings that maximize over-the-air updates and connectivity for even safer, more reliable driving.
In 2022, we announced a software solution to improve overall vehicle health management, safety and performance by detecting changing road surfaces (wet, dry, icy, etc.) and evolving tire conditions (tire stiffness, tread depth, etc.).
