LIVONIA, Mich., Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Safety and electronics innovations from TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. (NYSE: TRW) are featured on the new 2014 Jeep Cherokee models, including TRW's scalable video camera (S-Cam 2) – a forward-looking object recognition camera that provides lane keeping assist and high beam headlamp control, and helps assist in collision mitigation braking.
The all-new Cherokee is now available in Jeep dealerships and is one of the most technically advanced Sport Utility Vehicles ever offered. Already recognized as a Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the Cherokee boasts a full complement of TRW's safety and security systems.
These systems provide a range of comfort and safety features including Jeep's Passive Entry "Keyless Enter and Go" system which allows owners easy access to the vehicle without even needing to press the key fob button. The system is part of a highly efficient configuration in which the passive entry, remote keyless entry and tire pressure monitoring functions are all controlled by a single electronic control unit.
"Having our advanced technologies feature on vehicles that stand out for delivering top safety performance along with security and convenience is a testament to TRW's mission to provide market-leading, intelligent solutions to our customers," said Peter Lake, TRW executive vice president, sales and business development. "We are continually evolving our technologies to stay ahead of industry trends, exceed customer requirements and expectations, and deliver the safety that every driver and passenger on the road deserves."
TRW's S-Cam family of cameras can provide a range of safety functions including lane departure warning, forward collision warning, headlight control, traffic sign recognition and pedestrian detection. When integrated with vehicle chassis systems, the S-Cam camera can provide advanced active driver assist functions including lane keeping and lane centering (together with electric steering) and automatic emergency braking (together with radar and electronic stability control). TRW's S-Cam is also featured on the NCAP five-star and IIHS Top Safety Pick rated 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee.
According to 2011 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) data, 53 percent of road fatalities result from a roadway departure, and IIHS data estimates that lane departure warning and lane keeping assist systems could save more than 7,500 lives in the USA each year.
TRW announced earlier this year that it was further investing in its production sites – and in research and development – in both North America and Europe to support its growing camera business worldwide.
In addition to the camera and passive entry systems, TRW is supplying occupant safety equipment including seat belts and advanced safety electronics including its Generation 7 Airbag Control Unit with integrated inertial and rollover sensing coupled with side impact, crush zone and pressure sensors to detect crashes. It is also supplying its electric park brake system that sets the park brake with the touch of a button and offers many safety and convenience functions not available with a traditional parking brake.
With 2012 sales of $16.4 billion, TRW Automotive ranks among the world's leading automotive suppliers. Headquartered in Livonia, Michigan, USA, the Company, through its subsidiaries, operates in 25 countries and employs approximately 65,000 people worldwide. TRW Automotive products include integrated vehicle control and driver assist systems, braking systems, steering systems, suspension systems, occupant safety systems (seat belts and airbags), electronics, engine components, fastening systems and aftermarket replacement parts and services.

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, Chief Architect at CTS, will explore the synergy of Big Data and IoT. First he will take a closer look at the Internet of Things and Big Data individually, in terms of what, which, why, where, when, who, how and how much. Then he will explore the relationship between IoT and Big Data. Specifically, he will drill down to how the 4Vs aspects intersect with IoT: Volume, Variety, Velocity and Value. In turn, Tony will analyze how the key components of IoT ...

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

DevOps delivers remarkable results. But does it help all of IT? Can traditional ‘mode 1’ IT benefit as much as innovative ‘mode 2’? How about the rest of your business? Or have you just shifted your bottleneck? And if so, what can you do about it? Improving dev and ops is necessary, but not sufficient. It often just shifts the burden sideways (e.g., to PMs, SQA, InfoSec, DBAs, NOC, etc.), upstream (to the PMO, Controller, Business Liaison, etc.), or downstream (to TechPubs, Service Desk, Traini...

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text...

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated a...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”

Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud wit...
