As Automotive Interiors World Expo Europe concludes its proceedings for 2023, we take a moment to examine the exhibited trends in materials, finishes and technologies. Watch these videos to see what exhibitors Grewus, Innofa, Prodrive and Datwyler displayed in terms of developments in sustainable knitted and woven materials, haptics and mechatronics.
Haptics are an ever-expanding area of development for automotive interiors, and displayed a variety of novel applications for the technology.
Fabric coverings are undergoing a resurgence in luxury automotive interiors. Dutch firm Innofa exhibited its striking range of knitted, rather than woven, materials.
Renowned for its high-performance automotive engineering capabilities, Prodrive showcased several beautifully engineered mechatronics solutions for interior applications.
Some of the most interesting products on display at Automotive Interiors Expo were Datwyler’s electroactive polymers, which huge potential for haptic feedback and device actuation in interior applications.
