Valeo & Safran present their leading edge technologies and innovative mindset – the former in the auto industry and the latter in the aerospace, defense and security markets – presented their latest technological innovations, last March 27th at the Hôtel des Invalides in Paris.
"Safran and Valeo teamed up because we were working on similar technologies and issues, each for our own markets", said Jean-Paul Herteman, Chairman and CEO of Safran. "Our research focused on areas such as automated vehicle and drone control in complex environments, vision under difficult conditions, 3D displays and augmented reality, biometrics and security features, and sensors (imaging, acoustics, radar, laser). After 18 months of very productive exchanges, we are delighted to be able to show the initial results of our collaboration today."
Jacques Aschenbroich, CEO of Valeo, added, "The signature of our partnership agreement in September 2013 marked the start of our joint teamwork. This work has been carried out with enthusiasm, based on concrete objectives that quickly generated results. Our teams are united, they work well together and respect each other. In other words, we are ONE team that shares the same values, and the same obsession with innovation and swift execution. This is only at the start of a long story, clearly reflecting our ability to develop a real French center of technological excellence."
