Unable to ignore the CES, Valeo made the trip to unveil its latest technological innovations with the presentation of autonomous emergency braking called 360AEB Nearshield, the XtraVue for the suppression of blind spots, a driving system Autonomous and electrical named eCruise4U and CStream.
The 360AEB Nearshield system is a self-contained braking system based on 4 cameras and ultrasonic sensors located on the front and rear bumpers. These sensors alert the driver of potential obstacles and can, if necessary, stop the vehicle if the driver ignores the warnings. The 360AEB Nearshield can even detect moving objects, an undeniable fact for SUV drivers unable to maneuver their livestock without threatening to flatten some pedestrians as they pass. Future dogs crushed from the various heading will also welcome this new technology with joy.
The XtraVue system is based on an antenna combined with a laser scanner and cameras to provide the driver with a complete view of the road beyond his / her field of vision by removing visual obstacles. Thanks to V2V and V2X technologies, it will even be possible to access the video stream of other vehicles and road infrastructures.
Valeo a également dévoilé le système eCruise4U qui permet de rouler en mode autonome et électrique à petite vitesse en reposant sur les caméras, les capteurs à ultrasons et au scanner laser du système 360AEB Nearshield. La propulsion électrique est assurée par deux petits moteurs à la puissance combinée de 30 ch qui permettent de réduire la consommation de carburant de 17 %.
Finally, the equipment manufacturer presented the CStream, a set of cameras that observe the passenger compartment in order to offer more comfort or safety for the passengers. For example, the system can adapt the airbag according to what it detects in place of the front passenger. CStream also offers a camera in place of the central mirror.
Valeo estimates that these combined technologies would increase the price of vehicles by around 5,000 euros.
