Auto Shanghai: TRW to launch automotive camera in China early 2016 TRW将于16年初发布S-Cam3全新摄像头技术

TRW Automotive announced at the Auto Shanghai motor show that its Global Electronics business unit is launching its next generation video camera sensor – the S-Cam 3 – in China for the first time in early 2016. The technology will launch with a major North American vehicle manufacturer on several vehicles in the Chinese market, and will be produced locally at TRW’s electronics manufacturing facility in Anting.

The S-Cam 3 offers six times the processing power of the current generation camera to provide a higher level of sensing performance and several advanced safety functions, including lane keeping assist and automatic emergency braking for pedestrians and other vehicles.

Peter Lake, executive vice president sales and business development for TRW, commented: “We expect that the auto industry in China will continue its rapid technology evolution over the next few years as the market swiftly follows the active safety trend evident in North America and Europe.

“China NCAP is also planning to upgrade its five star requirements to feature active safety and collision prevention beginning in 2018. This will mark a clear turning point in the Chinese industry and safety will become more important than ever before.”

The S-Cam 3 is one of the environmental sensors in TRW’s driver assist systems (DAS) portfolio which can help to support accident mitigation and prevention. It has the potential to assist drivers in many ways and when combined with braking systems, can enable adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking as a standalone sensor. When integrated with other environmental sensors, chassis controllers and actuators, this technology provides a strong base platform for partially-automated driving functions.

“We anticipate exponential growth in DAS sensors over the next decade – both in China and other regions of the world. TRW has broad experience in this area and is well positioned to support Chinese customers with their growth aspirations for active safety,” concluded Lake.

TRW has camera production sites in North America (Marshall, Illinois), Europe (Peterlee, UK) and soon in Anting, China to support its customers in all major regions worldwide.

美国TRW汽车控股公司在上海车展上宣布,其全球电子业务单元将于2016年早些时候在中国推出下一代摄像头传感器S-Cam3。新产品将搭载于一家北美车企旗下多款中国在售车型上。此外,S-Cam3将由位于上海安亭的TRW车身电子产品工厂生产。

S-Cam3的图像处理性能是当前产品的6倍,并可实现更多的先进安全功能,例如,车道保持辅助、以及检测到行人和其它车辆后的自动紧急刹车功能。

TRW销售及业务开发执行副总裁PeterLake说:“随着中国的汽车安全法规逐渐与欧美接轨,我们认为中国的汽车制造商在未来几年将持续进行技术革新,以减小与国外汽车制造商在这方面的差距。中国的C-NCAP标准即将升级,将主动安全和防碰撞系统列为获得五星成绩的必要条件,此项改动将在2018年起实施。这将是中国汽车业的一个转折点,车辆安全性将变得前所未有的重要。”

S-Cam3是TRW驾驶辅助系统产品线中的一款环境探测传感器,它可以防止车辆发生碰撞。当S-Cam3与车辆制动系统协同工作时,能够独自支持自适应巡航控制、自动紧急制动等功能;而当S-Cam3与其他环境探测传感器、底盘控制器和执行器共同作用时,则形成了一个可实现半自动驾驶功能的有力基础平台。

PeterLake预计,未来十年中,全球的驾驶辅助系统传感器市场都将呈现指数级增长。TRW在该领域有着丰富的经验,并且已在中国进行了大量的本土化工作,足以支持中国客户在主动安全产品方面的增长需求。

TRW在北美(美国伊利诺斯州马歇尔)、欧洲(英国彼得利)都有摄像头工厂;位于上海安亭的工厂也即将投产。公司能够为全球大部分地区的客户提供产品支持。
