How will the drivers of tomorrow get around? As world populations and cities grow, people are looking for transportation solutions that make life easier. Solutions which reduce traffic congestion in our cities and respect the air we breathe. Connected vehicles that integrate seamlessly with our devices while improving safety on our roads. Economical choices that give us pleasure and freedom in driving. Through constant innovation and technological developments as well as a reputable aftermarket service, Valeo is committed to developing these solutions and shaping the future of mobility.
Valeo Intuitive Driving vision
Autonomous cars will bring down the risk of collision to one in a billion, whereas today 90% of accidents are caused by human error. In the same way, drivers will have to learn how to be driven. A whole learning process lies ahead.
Creating technology for tomorrow’s drivers
As populations grow and evolve, we will be faced with new mobility challenges. Urban areas are expanding and traffic congestion in them is growing. With more vehicles sharing the road, the need for driver and passenger safety is increasing. There’s a greater need to find ecological solutions for rising levels of air and sound pollution. At the same time, people are looking to optimize their transportation through on-demand solutions, vehicle sharing and low cost options.
Our vision for the car of the future
At Valeo, we are re-imagining what the car of tomorrow will look like. We innovate daily to design solutions that make future cars:
with less CO₂ emissions and more fuel-efficient
Enjoyable for the driver:
maintaining driving pleasure for the user
decreasing the number of accidents caused by human error
through driving assistance systems which offer the driver smart technologies like detection of obstacles and other vehicles, and fully automated parking; human-machine interfaces that meet and anticipate drivers’ needs by enhancing interaction between the vehicle, the driver and the surrounding environment
enabling cars to be in communication with their environment and the surrounding infrastructure, and enabling communication between cars through increased mobile connectivity and on-board telematics
technology that will give drivers the option to select automated driving and parking options when conditions allow (for instance, during traffic jams), which enable them to do other things than driving during their commute
freedom through car-sharing or car hiring
