Faurecia to explore cockpit of the future challenges & opportunities through interactive customer workshop during the 2017 Detroit Auto Show
The exclusive, invitation-only event is aimed at continuing the dialogue between Faurecia and its customers on new ideas for semi -and fully autonomous vehicle interiors. The event will be held at the Crowne Plaza Detroit Downtown Riverfront hotel, across from Cobo Center, from January 9-12, 2017.
As the world’s only Tier-1 supplier that offers expertise in both seating and complete interior systems, Faurecia is uniquely positioned to integrate today’s technologies with emerging innovations, which will enable new use cases within autonomous vehicles. The workshop’s plug-and-play methodology will allow customers greater flexibility to explore multiple layouts and challenges in real-time, creating a roadmap to the new, autonomous future. “The automotive industry is undergoing a technological revolution in terms of connectivity and autonomous driving that will require OEM s and suppliers to work closely together,” said M ark Stidham, president of Faurecia North America.
“Through this unique workshop experience, Faurecia experts will walk customers through a variety of scenarios and advance our ongoing dialogue with them to help make the concepts of today a reality that can be applied to vehicles consumers will see on the
road in the near- term.” Stidham added that the workshops exemplify Faurecia’s commitment to developing innovations ready to meet near-term challenges and prioritize elements critical to its customers’ success.
To this end, Faurecia will highlight three core areas of expertise: Comfort, Perceived Quality and Smart Surfaces. Additionally, several production-ready innovations will be available in an exhibit alongside the workshops, including Active Wellness™ 2.0, Smart Pebbles, Intuition or Natural Motion™.
