Leading role: Piloted driving
The Audi e-tron quattro concept is capable of both piloted parking at the charging plate and piloted driving. To do this, its radar sensors work together with a video camera, ultrasonic sensors and a laser scanner than provides highly precise data about objects up to 80 meters (262.5 ft) away.
The central driver assistance controller, or zFAS for short, is located in the luggage compartment. A wide range of sensor information comes together here. The zFAS uses this information to compute a complete model of the surroundings in real time and makes this information available to all systems involved. Its computing power corresponds to the entire electronics architecture of a well-equipped mid-size car. Thanks to the high degree of integration, the board is only the size of a tablet PC, however. The zFAS and environment sensor system are a concrete foretaste of technologies that will soon appear in Audi production vehicles.
