Control and driver assist systems

Systems for driving dynamics control have been greatly improved in recent years, with respect to both performance and comfort relevant characteristics. Different control tasks affecting the driving dynamics can be improved by additional sensor systems within the vehicle. These sensor systems work in connection with control algorithms and the relevant actuators.
