Partners Concoct Sensor Tech For Door And Seat Functions

(Brose, Vayyar)

When autopilot takes control of a vehicle, the steering wheel will disappear into the instrument panel and the vehicle user can decide how he or she wants to enjoy the ride. The vehicle interior is flexible: seats, screens and consoles slide and adapt to the desired use, e.g. for work or relaxation. Sensors recognize occupancy in the interior at all times to ensure the necessary level of safety in the interaction of mechanical and electronic systems. These sensors will also make it possible for side doors to open and close automatically and if other vehicles or obstacles are in the way, the movement ends before the door comes into contact with any object. Automotive supplier Brose is now working with sensor specialist Vayyar on the realization of this vision by integrating unique sensor systems in power adjustment systems and drives in interior and exterior applications.


Brose doors, equipped with Vayyar's sensors, enable a full protection of the door without compromising design and at a minimal footprint in a single location. Precise interior monitoring in 3D adds functions such as anti-theft protection, gesture control and recognition of vital signs such as breathing rates. Precise sensing of occupancy and the position of seats also makes it possible to eliminate previously required components. For more details, visit Brose and Vayyar.
