Nexteer’s advanced motion control solutions enable built-in redundancies and higher durability to support autonomous people movers, last mile delivery vehicles and more.
The extra safety layers and durability are especially important in these applications without a human driver, or when the vehicle is running many more hours than typical run times.
Shared mobility is closely connected with other trends like Automated Driving, Connectivity and Electrification – such as with people movers and geo-fenced last mile delivery vehicles.
Here are some of our advanced technologies that support Shared Mobility:
· Automated Steering Actuator: Offers a single steering solution that solves challenges for shared, autonomous and electric people mover vehicles – including those without a steering wheel or driver. It enables higher vehicle speeds, higher steering loads and higher safety and durability requirements.
· Steer-by-Wire & High Availability EPS: Enable safety-critical steering redundancy in shared mobility applications. They do this through simultaneous, multi-path processing software AND dual hardware components.
· Advanced Halfshaft Technologies: Ideal for heavily driven, shared mobility vehicles because of their increased durability, efficiency and NVH performance. They provide a smooth ride, while limiting disturbances for drivers and passengers.
· CNXMotion Technologies: Through our CNXMotion JV with Continental, we’re working on shared mobility applications that integrate steering, braking and powertrain for advanced motion control solutions.
