Faurecia showcases its Cockpit of the Future and Sustainable Mobility solutions at the Tokyo Motor Show
Amongst the key technologies showcased:
- Connected Premium Sound Technologies
Automatic understanding of the occupant’s position and optimization of their sound environment by combining digital technologies and acoustic solutions. The car, equipped with Full Digital Sound, recognizes individuals and automatically plays their favorite music and optimizes the acoustic tuning offering an exceptional sound quality.
- Autonomous pick-up solution
This technology developed by Faurecia Clarion Electronics and recently awarded with a “2019 Good Design” illustrates the group's high competence in Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and opens up unique perspectives into the world of autonomous cars. Using an app, a user remotely summons the car. The driverless vehicle uses a map (previously autonomously created while parking) to recalculate its route and uses fusion of cameras and sensors together with detection software to monitor the driving environment and avoid obstacles on its way to pick up the driver.
- Quad View HMI
A multi-view HMI interface that eliminates confusing menu structures and gives more flexibility over selecting and managing in-vehicle features. It allows users to bookmark and organize their most frequently used apps or services into an easy- to-access series of options on the top of the IVI display.
- Fuel cell electric vehicles
Faurecia will also showcase its fuel cell systems with a comprehensive range of hydrogen tank and fuel cell stacks for both light and commercial vehicles. Faurecia is investing significant resources as fuel-cell electric vehicles offer an attractive and complementary alternative to battery electric vehicles.
Faurecia Clarion Electronics, the fourth Business Group of Faurecia created following the acquisition of Clarion earlier this year has five product lines - ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems), Cockpit Domain Controller, Interior Monitoring Systems, Displays & HMI and Immersive Sound Systems. Faurecia Clarion Electronics is playing a key role in Faurecia’s strategy for the personalized, connected and versatile Cockpit of the Future.
