Autoliv and Adient to collaborate on seats for autonomous driving vehicles


Automotive safety systems supplier Autoliv and automotive seating supplier Adient are collaborating to address vehicle seating challenges presented by designs for the future car and the incorporation of autonomous driving.

The interior of automated driving vehicles will play an important role in the car of the future, as drivers and passengers will spend more time on non-driving activities.

Once vehicles have the capability to be computer-driven, passengers will demand far more flexibility from a vehicle’s interior space than ever before, resulting in alternative seating positions to relax, work and socialise, the companies state.

At the same time, completely new safety and comfort challenges arise with these opportunities for future mobility. By looking beyond traditional forward-facing seats, Autoliv and Adient feel this development agreement will create optimal integrated products and solutions to address these challenges.
