Ideal solutions for future mobility

Megatrends in the automotive industry are facing new challenges for the materials used, yet at the same time opening up new opportunities. Electromobility and autonomous driving are set to revolutionize cars and put established vehicle concepts to the test. At the K 2019 press conference, Thomas Bayerl, Segment Manager E/E & e-Mobility, talks about these trends and the impact on interior concepts.

The megatrends in the automotive industry are already described by the catchword "CASE". Connectivity, autonomous driving, shared services and last but not least electromobility will fundamentally change the automobile as we know it today. This poses new challenges to materials and at the same time offers opportunities for design and functionality. In addition to electromobility, automated driving will change the vehicle of  tomorrow. In a self-driving automobile, the interior will probably become an extended living room and increase the number of sensors significantly.
