October 2, 2018

TEL AVIV, Israel & PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct 2, 2018--Vayyar Imaging, the global leader in 3D imaging technology, today announced from the Paris Motor Show that Faurecia, one of the world’s leading automotive technology companies, has chosen Vayyar’s revolutionary radar sensors for their automotive “Cockpit of the Future.” By implementing Vayyar’s 3D imaging sensors with multi-transceiver radar capabilities, Faurecia’s cockpit solutions will now offer a fully-integrated connected car experience. Through this partnership, the companies will work together to optimize passenger comfort and vehicle safety with constant monitoring and automatic alert services.

After completing a successful proof of concept earlier this year, Vayyar and Faurecia will now work together to bring this enhanced passenger experience to mass production readiness.

Vayyar’s technology will assist by locating and measuring passengers’ movement and breathing, among other capabilities.

David Degrange, Vice President of the Cockpit of the Future division at Faurecia, said: “We are convinced that the consumers’ needs in future mobility require technologies to improve the user experience and to improve safety and well-being.

Their unique knowhow and innovative offer solution fit very well with Faurecia’s Cockpit of the Future strategy.”

Vayyar’s unique high-resolution sensor is powerful enough to cover the entire cabin even if concealed in various locations, without compromising on the design aesthetics. Unlike cameras or other automotive sensors, Vayyar’s highly advanced technology operates in any weather or light condition and do not collect optic data, so passengers can rest assured their privacy or personal information is not revealed.
