Bosch APAS is the first collaborative robot to be certified as an assistance system by the German employers’ liability insurance association which allows direct collaboration with people without additional shielding.
It appears that in this day and age you can predict mathematically the performance of the car, the tyre, the aero and the vehicle handling characteristics.

Self-diagnostics highlight the onset of problems at an early stage so that they can be dealt with at the most opportune time.
The new S-Class has an approximately 7 percent lower steel content at 42.5 percent, while the proportion of light alloys is around 5 percent higher and the proportion of polymers 2 percent higher than in the predecessor model. The main constructional differences compared with the predecessor model are as follows:
• Increased use of aluminium in the body
(e.g. roof, frontend) and in the axles.
• Cockpit cross member of hybrid design
• Plastic fuel tank.
Plastic tank: –18.2 kg
HELLA micro actuator
HELLA supplies the new S class with rotatorical micro actuator for the fuel tank and the distance adjusting cruise control.
CCM applies a uniform, scratchproof, transparent coating to walnut or other wood veneers used as decor elements in luxury vehicles. A very thin layer of PU is flow moulded over the parts in the mould.
The clear coat molding (CCM) process, where wood parts are coated with transparent polyurethane (PU) to attain outstanding visual characteristics.
