Valeo showcased its latest technological innovations shaping mobility, i.e the advent of autonomous vehicles, powertrain electrification and digital mobility at CES in Las Vegas.
Valeo develops new technologies to make this transformation a reality. One example that was seen and tested in the streets of Las Vegas during CES 2019 was Valeo Drive4U, the Group’s first autonomous car, which is unique in that it can perform all operations using only Valeo sensors that are already series-produced (ultrasound, cameras, lasers, radars and LiDARS) and artificial intelligence (AI). The vehicle is essentially equipped with a full-fledged digital brain that can process the inputs and learn from the scenarios it encounters in the city.
One of the key challenges in autonomous driving is safety. To achieve this result, Valeo presented two major innovations in Las Vegas: Valeo Drive4U Remote to operate autonomous vehicles remotely when assistance is required or even vital, and Valeo Voyage XR, which is able to simulate the virtual presence of a person – based in a fixed location – on board the autonomous vehicle during the journey. This means that the car can potentially be controlled externally by somebody who is aware of what is happening within the vehicle. Based on this innovation, Valeo has designed a new form of communication that allows a ‘stationary’ passenger wearing a virtual reality headset to teleport into a moving vehicle.
Valeo also introduced Valeo XtraVue Trailer, which causes a trailer or caravan to appear invisible in the rearview mirror of the vehicle towing it, making all manoeuvres easier and safer for the driver. Valeo PictureBeam Monolithic is a high definition lighting system developed in partnership with LED manufacturer CREE. The solution generates a high definition beam of light on the road without ever blinding other road users, and projects information and images onto the pavement.
At CES 2019, Valeo’s full and partial 48V powertrain electrification systems can now be applied to all kinds of vehicles, from robo-taxis to two and three-wheelers, and droids.
