TRW Automotive Supplies Safety Components for 2006

Recommended Posts

LIVONIA, Mich., Aug. 16 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TRW Automotive Holdings Corp. , the global leader in automotive safety systems, today announced that various company subsidiaries will supply General Motors (GM) with advanced active and passive safety technology for the upcoming 2006 Cadillac DTS.

The DTS features numerous TRW Automotive safety and convenience systems, including anti-lock braking systems, traction control, StabiliTrak ™ (electronic stability control), advanced airbag systems, and rain sensing windshield wiper sensors.

The StabiliTrak system featured on the 2006 DTS is designed to assist drivers during difficult driving conditions by monitoring steering wheel angle, yaw rate and lateral acceleration. If a potential loss of vehicle control is sensed, StabiliTrak automatically adjusts brake pressure on individual wheels and cuts engine throttle to help bring the vehicle back in line with the driver's intended path.

In addition, TRW Automotive's Brake Assist is also available on the new DTS model, providing enhanced braking performance. Brake Assist monitors the driver's braking tendencies, sensing when emergency braking situations are imminent. When sensors determine that the driver wants to stop quickly, the system automatically applies full braking pressure, helping to bring the vehicle to a stop more rapidly.

The Cadillac DTS is also equipped with TRW's front, driver-side, and side curtain airbag systems. Utilizing TRW's cold gas inflator technology, the DTS's side curtain airbags provide full occupant coverage in both the front and rear seats offering crucial protection during side impact collisions or rollovers.

"We believe the 2006 Cadillac DTS is an exceptional vehicle," commented Peter Lake, executive vice president Sales and Business Development for TRW Automotive. "We are pleased to provide GM with advanced safety systems that will offer excellent performance for Cadillac customers."
