Sustainability is rapidly pervading every corner of the automotive industry and market—and every corner of the traditionally plastic-laden interior. Every day brings new concepts and applications in sustainability, which has always been a focus of DVN Interior (and likely always will be). This week’s in-depth article looks at the incredible activity and diversity of sustainability innovation, and sustainability is one of the two discussion themes for the DVN Interior Think Tank Seminar on 29 November. We’re keen to get your ideas for related topics and issues to discuss, and for questions to be debated at the event, so please continue to send us your thoughts as we work to prepare the event..
This week’s news also looks at improving safety and user experience: an “energizing” seat and an infotainment tourguide from Mercedes; Plastic Omnium’s light projection technique; Emotion3D’s new type of DMS; the interior of a new Chevrolet EV, and BMW’s been trying out a pay-in-perpetuity subscription model for features like heated seats. Truly, auto interior innovation is zooming along at Warp 9…increasingly sustainably!
We’ll be taking a short summer break—we hope you will too. We’ll see you back here on 18 August. Enjoy your summer!
