STOCKHOLM, Sept. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The global automotive technology company Veoneer, a leader in active safety and restraint control systems, has together with Lear Corporation (NYSE: LEA), a global automotive technology leader in Seating and E-Systems, co-developed the electronics supporting Lear's ConfigurE+ removable seat with zonal safety technology, which was honored as an Automotive News PACEpilot Innovation to Watch.
The safety solution is the first wireless and electronics-based system that identifies seat location and seat status – key to the adoption of reconfigurable seating in vehicles. The smart technology automatically activates safety features in the second and third rows of a vehicle based on the detected location and orientation of seats and occupant status.
Automotive News' PACEpilot enters its third year in 2022. PACEpilot judges reviewed the innovations of 23 finalists for the awards, which were presented at a ceremony on September 19 in Detroit.
"We are honored to be part of this award-winning seating innovation," said Robert Bisciotti, EVP Product Area RCS, Veoneer. "In the future, we expect an increased use of removable and reconfigurable seats in vehicles, and this technology will ensure occupant protection regardless of seating arrangement."
