Eberhard Zeeb studied physics at the Technical University of Braunschweig and at the University of Würzburg with a focus on theoretical solid-state physics and was a member of the University of Ulm.
In 1995, Eberhard Zeeb began working for Daimler AG and initially worked on secure optical communications networks and data buses for commercial aircraft applications and motor vehicles. From 2002 to 2005 he was Head of the Department of Optoelectronic Systems with working centers in optical sensor technology, optical connection technology and lighting technology. He then moved to the Daimler Driving Simulation Center and was responsible for the operation and further development of the driving simulators. Since December 2012, he has been head of Daimler's Automotive Automation Department.
Systems with multiple sensors can practice sensor fusion to integrate the data from to improve safety and/or driving experience. GPS data can inform the system of geographic features such as a freeway offramp. A camera system could notice driver behavior such as brake lights and/or a turn signal. This could allow a following car to interpret a turn signal by an exit as not requiring the following car to slow down, as the leading car will exit.  Multi-sensor systems could also take note of traffic signs/signals and not, ., violate a red light while following a vehicle that crossed before the signal changed.
