Development of holistic HMI seats
Rising luxury features have increased the comfort level of the customers, and consumers are demanding better features in terms of safety and comfort. As a result, the seat manufacturers are innovating new technologies in the automotive seating system market.
“Continental has developed an innovative seat comfort system, which will store the seat position through memory function, and the seating position can also be retrieved through a single push of a button. This development will allow the seat to adjust as per the drivers' preferred position automatically. The integration of the seats with vehicle lock can achieve this objective and will give active communication between seat and driver,” according to Amey.
Development of seats featuring wellness parameters and biometric sensing system
The automotive seats are seen as a key that can hold a lot of information about the driver’s safety, comfort, and health. Hence, modular seating equipped with biosensors and wellness parameters is being developed by seat manufacturers like Faurecia and Lear Corporation.
Active Wellness, a type of modular seating, can detect the driver’s heartbeat as well as breathing patterns and based on it, it will execute a specific massage pattern and seat ventilation to restore the driver anxiety. It can detect the mental as well as the physical status of an occupant and corresponding countermeasures to return to a healthy driving status.
Development of contactless sensors to deliver real-time monitoring
The seats have an important role to play in fulfilling the comfort expectations of the customers, and the requirement of customers to drive long distances in irregular timings is pushing demand for durable and functional efficient seats, which has led to the development of modular seating.
The development of these sensors did not change the comfort of the seat or visual design of the seat. Additionally, seats are able to accommodate noise and vibration from the moving vehicle without compromising its effectiveness. Technavio analyst expects that the focus on the development of seat sensors by the seat suppliers will have a positive influence on the automotive modular seating market.
The key vendors are as follows:
- Lear Corporation
