The Valeo research and development center in Prague was established in 2002. At that time it was entirely focused on development of air conditioning units and control panels.
A new activity of developing systems for autonomous driving, namely parking assistance and active safety systems, started in 2013. Lane keep assistants, autonomous emergency braking or detection of vehicles in the blind spot of rearview mirrors are just a few examples of such active safety systems.
Valeo is a worldwide leader in driving and parking assistance systems also thanks to the contribution of the colleagues in Prague. The center provides the full R&D process including customer requirements analysis, system architecture, software development, mechanical and hardware design, testing in laboratory, vehicles tests on the test track in Milovice and in real road traffic.
Between 2013 and 2023 the team has grown to 800 engineers. That is the reason why the R&D center has moved to new premises in Prague-Strašnice, counting already 4 buildings, including 14000 m² of office space, 3000 m² of laboratories and an additional track for vehicle tests.
