Cover Story – Interior

Driving Simulator with VR Glasses for Evaluation of New Interior Concepts

Authors of the article: Volkswagen, Cruden, TU Berlin

Experience cars of tomorrow already today – this intention is the big challenge at the development of new interior concepts. Here, strategic and subjective decisions have to be made at times where real prototypes are still not available. Volkswagen developed a new dynamic driving simulator concept to evaluate variants of the passenger compartment in the early development phase. The characteristics are defined by the application of VR glasses, the so-called head mounted display, as well as the use of a flexible mock-up in combination with a motion system.

Cover Story – Interview

Interior concepts for autonomous driving

Han Hendriks and Tim Shih, YFAI Yanfeng Automotive Interiors

Authors of the article: Reichenbach

In the interview, the ATZ discusses the effects of automation level 5 on interior concepts such as the YFAI Experience in Motion 2020 (XiM20) project for autonomous ridesharing vehicles. Adapted to the future requirements and needs of passengers, the XiM20 offers a completely new travel experience.

Cover Story – Interior

Improved Comfort for the Future Vehicle Interior

Authors of the article: Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics

Autonomous and electric driving offer new opportunities for designing and arranging seats in the automotive interior. Only the complete elimination of unpleasant noise can keep passenger comfort consistently high, especially in cars with the quietest of propulsion drives. This can only be achieved through the right bearing design, which has to meet NVH specifications is important, as Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics explains in-depth here.

Development – Chassis

Predictive Chassis Concept for Passenger Cars

Authors of the article: ZF

The chassis has consistently played a key role in the future of the automobile. End customers want a dynamic driving experience without forgoing dependability. However, at the same time, automated functions increase demand for comfort, which car manufacturers and suppliers must in turn satisfy. Individual components can no longer satisfy these varied tasks alone. ZF therefore relies on the optimized combination of chassis systems.

Development – Body

Series Sensors for fiber-reinforced Bodies – Functional Lightweight Design and Damage Monitoring

Authors of the article: Bosch

Challenges for lightweight design with fiber-reinforced plastics are fast development times and high cost pressure. Furthermore, today’s sensor-based vehicle functions must also be implemented in future automobiles. As a solution approach, Bosch offers the direct integration of common automotive sensors such as acceleration sensors into fiber structures. This even enables a secondary function for damage monitoring.
