Automated Driving Leads to New Requirements for the Vehicle Interior24. January 2018
With the progressive automation of vehicles and the development of fully autonomous driving, the cockpit and the vehicle control become less important for the driver. In the future car drivers will increasingly focus on non-driving areas such as integrated displays in the vehicle interior, high-quality surfaces and new possibilities for movement through rotating seats. The automotive interior parts are becoming more and more comfortable with new requirements and possibilities for interior suppliers.
Many automotive interior suppliers are developing new surface materials and processing technologies to increase the value of the products and to meet the increased focus of the drivers. These include, for example, thin foils for doors, consoles and other components, which are being developed as an alternative to injection molded parts in the interior. New colors, gradients and effects play an important role.
Visitors to the automobile trade fairs of recent months were already able to gain a first impression of the direction the development of vehicle interiors will take in the future. Especially for the China, who wants to take the lead by 2030 in the field of autonomous driving, high quality standards apply to Chinese customers of German premium manufacturers. Surface materials of the vehicle interior are to be tested for flammability during the CCC certification if they meet a certain minimum size and are made for the Chinese market.
