TRW Expands Electronics Business To Meet Growing Demand For Automated Vehicles

TRWTRW Automotive Holdings Corp. is using its 2015 International CES exhibit stand as a platform to highlight the expansion of its electronics group – and in particular the growth of its dedicated Automated Vehicle team.

Tolga Oal, vice president, TRW Global Electronics commented, “Automated functions are at the top of the industry’s agenda. This requires an increase in the level of integration between sensors, controllers and actuators as well as redundancy strategies. We have aligned our business in several ways in order to more effectively partner with our customers in these areas.”

“For example, our Automated Vehicle engineering team is doubling in size in 2015 in order to meet the growing product development demand from our European, North American and Japanese customers. This is part of a wider effort in which the company is hiring engineers and technicians to also support the overall growth of our Driver Assist System product portfolio,” Oal added.

TRW also recently appointed a new vice president of its active safety portfolio, Brian Loh. Loh has business responsibility for all DAS sensors, central Safety Domain ECUs and the automated vehicle strategy and execution. In addition, TRW has appointed Dr. Hans-Gerd Krekels to the new position of director of active safety engineering, with technical responsibility for DAS sensors and the central Safety Domain ECU controllers and software required for automated driving.

TRW’s electronics business has accelerated rapidly over the past three years with the hiring of more than 650 engineers and technicians globally. The majority of these new hires work in the development of advanced radar and camera technologies at technical centers in North America and Europe.

TRW develops and manufactures its video camera sensors in Peterlee, in the U.K., and Marshall, Ill., in the U.S., supported by technical centers in Koblenz and Dusseldorf, Germany; Solihull, U.K.; and Farmington Hills, Mich. The company develops and manufactures its radar sensors in Brest, France, supported by technical centers in Koblenz and Solihull. Regional technical centers provide customer support across the globe.
