Delphi helps keep occupants safe in the new Land Rover Range Rover with systems such as it electronically scanning radar, which is linked to Land Rover’s emergency braking. This helps drivers avoid a collision if the traffic ahead slows quickly or another vehicle suddenly moves into the lane.

In addition, Delphi’s adaptive cruise control makes it possible for the emergency braking system to continue functioning at low speeds down to a complete stop. The radar uses a solid state array of radiating elements to eliminate many of the limitations of conventional scanning or multi-beam radar systems.

Delphi also supplies the Range Rover’s steering-wheel-mounted gear-shift paddles and passive occupant detection system.

Unveiled at the 2012 Paris auto show, the new Range Rover is built on the automaker’s D7 platform at Land Rover’s factory in Solihull, England.

Range Rover output is due to peak in 2014 at more than 50,000 units, according to IHS Automotive forecasts, which predicts the SUV’s global sales to peak at 44,000 next year.
