German lighting and electronics specialist Hella KGaA Hueck & Co. and French automotive supplier Faurecia SA have entered a strategic partnership to develop “innovative interior lighting solutions” for the cockpit of the future.
As part of the project, the two companies will jointly develop high-technology surface and dynamic lighting solutions for a more personalized cockpit.
The collaboration will see Faurecia contributing its expertise as a complete system integrator for vehicle interiors and Hella supplying innovative interior lighting products.
The strategic collaboration with Hella is the latest in a series of partnerships Faurecia has struck in recent months in a bid to advance the vehicle interior of the future.
The company announced a partnership with Mahle GmbH in October 2017 to improve interior thermal management of cars.
Also last year, Faurecia and ZF Friedrichshafen AG — both leading global systems suppliers for cars and trucks — announced a strategic partnership to develop “disruptive and differentiating interior and safety technologies” for autonomous driving.
