European media recently visited the Nexteer Automotive facility in Tychy, Poland to see how the company is leading the way when it comes to the development of ADAS technology and new steering systems.
The company, a global leader in intuitive motion control, also used the event to communicate the expansion of its global production capabilities with the announcement of a new facility in Morocco. The 18,000m2 facility will be the company’s first in Africa, with ground to be broken later this month.
While on site at the Tychy plant, media attendees from across Europe met with senior engineers and board members from Nexteer, who took the journalists through how the company is innovating when it comes to the next generation of vehicles. Key developments include the company’s Steer-by-Wire, Quiet Wheel and Steering-on-Demand systems, with full demonstrations of each provided on Nexteer’s dedicated on-site test track.
Previously announced at last year’s IAA International Motor Show in Frankfurt, Nexteer’s High-Availability Electric Power Steering (EPS) and advanced Steer-by-Wire systems enable advanced safety and functions for Level 2-5 automated driving.
