Faurecia to reveal its latest technologies for the ‘Cockpit of the Future’ at the Shanghai Auto Show
Faurecia, one of the world’s leading automotive technology companies, will demonstrate its latest innovations for the Cockpit of the Future and Sustainable Mobility during the 19th Auto Shanghai which will be held from April 19–28, 2021.
“Exploiting the Group’s full technology portfolio and integration expertise, Faurecia is revealing a complete cockpit interior to provide an immersive, personalized journey adapted to the needs of Chinese consumers,” a press release reads. “From smart surfaces, innovative HMI, occupant monitoring and wellness applications to full cabin infotainment with pillar to pillar displays, Faurecia is demonstrating its full range of ready-to-integrate seating, interior and electronic technologies to support OEMs in China. The demonstrator also showcases Faurecia’s unique LUMI innovation which embeds lighting features within the seating, enabling OEMs to create a differentiating interior styling.
This demonstrator highlights the maturity of Faurecia’s innovation ecosystem in China. Multimodal HMI solutions have been developed with innovation partner Horizon Robotics and LUMI, the innovative lighting thread material, has been developed for Faurecia’s exclusive use with a Shanghai-based university.”
Faurecia brings to Auto Shanghai a commercial vehicle hydrogen demonstrator that, for the first time, showcases how Faurecia and Symbio, a joint-venture with Michelin, can optimize the system architecture and integration of tanks and stack systems. Faurecia has developed a 7-tank hydrogen storage system designed to provide over 700km autonomy for long distance and high load commercial trucks. The demonstrator also integrates a fuel cell stack system developed by Symbio, designed to provide a compact and efficient solution delivering net power of 75kW for the needs of heavy-duty trucks. Through a smart integration, the hydrogen storage system and the fuel cell stack system will maximize the payload.
