The Future of Automotive Interiors
Torn between Economy, Ecology, Design and Legal Requirements
The perceived value of a car’s interior is increasingly informing consumers’ purchase decisions. Another contributory factor is waveguide and sensor functions directly incorporated into components. Thanks to new tailor-made materials as well as optimized processes, polymer engineering offers the sustainable concepts required.Beitrag auf Deutsch lesen
