TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. (NYSE: TRW) has been recognized by the Chrysler Group LLC’s Innovation group with a 2012 Innovation Award for User Experience and Driver Assistance in the development of Lane Centering Assist systems.
The award is in recognition of a 2012 “Decoupled Development” project and TRW was recognized as one of the top supplier partnership projects at Chrysler’s inaugural Supplier Innovation Awards Ceremony on March 1. The event was initiated to recognize those suppliers that have exhibited exceptional performance in their collaborative efforts toward innovation project results.
“TRW is honored to accept this award and particularly pleased to be one of only 13 supplier partners to be selected,” said Ken Kaiser, Vice President, TRW Global Electronics Engineering. “We will continue our focus on the development of affordable advanced safety systems to benefit the driving public and look forward to working with our Chrysler colleagues on further innovation collaborations in future.”
TRW’s Lane Centering Assist is an integrated system that utilizes a forward-facing camera and electrically powered steering system – the camera detects the lane markings, calculates the virtual lane center-line and sends torque commands continuously to the electric steering system to help keep the vehicle centered in the lane automatically.
