LAS VEGAS -- Valeo showed a range of newÂ connected-car technologies at this year CES, as the French automotive supplier group worksÂ to grab a bigger share of the fast-growing market for autonomous-vehicle-related systems.
Jacques Aschenbroich, the company's CEO, said at a press event on the eve of the consumer electronics show that, while today's cars have only about 500 euros worth of autonomous-driving-related technology inside, highly automated cars will have as much as 5,000 euros worth on board.
At CES, the world's largest consumer electronics show, Valeo unveiled five innovations:
- eCruise4U, which facilitatesÂ automated driving in electric mode.
- XtraVue, a set of connected computer-vision cameras that show drivers what is happening on the road, even outside their line of sight.
- 360AEB Nearshield, a new autonomous emergency braking system
- C-Stream, aÂ new dome module that replaces the central rearview mirror and maps out the vehicle’s cabin.
- Valeo Cockpit, aÂ technology demonstrator that combines a range of products.
"Electrified, autonomous and shared are the paradigms of new mobility," said Jean-Francois Tarabbia, Valeo's head of R&D.
