Here are some of the Innovations outlined by Faurecia:

avst-960x400Advanced Versatile Seat Structure – Faurecia and ZF have developed an innovative frame concept called the Advanced Versatile Structure (AVS) that allows occupants to drive, relax and work in a safe and seamless way. Intelligently powered kinematics effortlessly recline, lift, adjust and swivel the seat, and then return it smoothly and quickly back to the upright driving position.

Faurecia and Parrot Automotive have been combining their expertise to accelerate solutions for the cockpit of the future integrating premium smart surfaces and decoration, HMI, infotainment and connectivity solutions.

natural-motion-960x400Natural Motion™ from Faurecia is a new simpler, more natural, way to move a seat and backrest to achieve the best body posture.  With Natural Motion, seat adjustment commands are at your finger tip, – no more bending forward to pull up a handle.
Natural Motion is entirely different from either of these approaches. It’s a flexible system that allows for one or more human-machine interfaces (HMI) to be placed on the steering wheel or next to the seat.
