TRW to Unveil Integrated Safety Strategy at Convention in Germany

August 01, 2007

LIVONIA, Mich. --- TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. announced plans to highlight its intelligent and integrated vehicle safety systems at this year's Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung (IAA) International Motorshow in Frankfurt, Germany, from Sept. 11-23. TRW said the company will demonstrate how such systems help prevent accidents and protect passengers. In addition, the company will showcase its range of fuel-efficient technologies, such as hybrid braking and electrically powered steering systems. "TRW has developed a suite of environmental sensors to gain a complete picture of the driving environment, which enables the most appropriate application of its broad range of active and passive safety technologies," said John Plant, TRW Automotive president and CEO. "Studies have shown that the potential value of safety and driver assist systems increase as higher proportions of the vehicle fleet feature these technologies," added Peter Lake, executive vice president of sales and business development for TRW. "To this end, for the mass market or 'C' segment typical family car, we've developed a series of mid range, lower cost sensors including radar for adaptive cruise control and a camera for lane departure warning systems. Other examples of such market positioning are the development of our latest generation electrically powered hydraulic steering, or Active Dynamic Control suspension technology, both of which are very competitive systems with advanced functionality."
