Leading role: the piloted driving
The Audi h-tron quattro concept is equipped with all functions for piloted driving and parking that Audi is developing for production use. The combination of radar, camera and surround sensors supplies a complete model of the car’s surroundings. A laser scanner monitors the area in front of the car up to 80 meters (262.5 ft) away. All the data is brought together in the driver assistance system (zFAS) in real time. The computing power of the zFAS is equivalent to the entire electronics architecture of a well-appointed midsize automobile – but the high level of integration means the board is merely the size of a tablet PC. The zFAS and the surround sensors provide a compelling foretaste of technologies that will soon be going into production at Audi.
The function for piloted driving in congestion currently being developed by Audi will in future reduce the driver’s workload in slow-moving traffic on express roads by taking care of the steering at speeds of between 0 and 60 km/h (37.3 mph). The system also accelerates and slows down on its own. With piloted parking from Audi, the driver will be able to control the car conveniently from outside, via the remote control key or a smartphone.
