“Seating Tomorrow” demonstrator
Recaro Commercial Vehicle Seating ideas for the occupants of tomorrow’s autonomously driven commercial vehicles and mobility concepts.
The Recaro demonstrator’s driver seat is capable of recording the driver’s vital signs with sensors measuring heartbeat and motion rate while seated.9/19/18
The driver activation programs and the monitoring of body functions can be activated when the seat is in Drive mode, and in Relax and Rest modes during vehicle downtimes.9/19/18
In Relax mode, the driver seat is turned 45 degrees toward the passenger’s side of the cabin, creating a comfortable work area to use a laptop or communicate with others for instance.9/19/18
In Rest mode, the driver seat is turned a further 90 degrees toward the passenger seat. In this position, the backrest can be tilted further down. By accordingly turning the passenger seat to provide a leg rest, the two seats can be combined to form a comfortable resting couch.9/19/18
Recaro’s “Seating tomorrow” demonstrator at IAA 2018 can be operated with a tablet computer, which simulates the seat’s possible integration into digitized cabin environments.9/19/18
