ZF has acquired a 40% stake in Ibeo Automotive Systems, a Hamburg-based company founded in 2009, which is a market leader in the development of lidar technology and environmental recognition software, with a particular focus on applications for autonomous driving.

Stefan Sommer, ZF’s CEO, said, “Lidar gives us access to a core technology for environmental and object recognition. It expands our current sensor portfolio of radar and camera technologies, and moreover, Ibeo’s fusion of these three sensor technologies provides outstanding results in environmental awareness and forms the basis for autonomous driving.”
