Cornering with more dynamism and agility, improved driving stability and safety at high speeds, as well as mastering parking and turning manoeuvres more easily: These are the benefits offered by the rear axle kinematics called Active Kinematics Control (AKC) from ZF. The system allows the rear axle of passenger cars to provide active steering assistance via electromechanic wheel alignment – and can be adapted in two variants for different axle designs in a modular manner.
