Valeo Takes Part in the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show for the First Time
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2014
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --For the first time, Valeo is
participating in the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), an international trade
show dedicated to technological innovation held in Las Vegas January 7-10,
2014. Reflecting its ongoing research and development programs, which the
Valeo Group allocated €1billion in 2012, the company is unveiling new
technologies designed to make driving easier and safer, while saving drivers
To support its development in the years ahead, Valeo is presenting three major
technologies for a more intelligent mobility that is connected to the drivers
and their environment:
- The Automated Valet Parking. Demonstrated at CES in the Driverless Car
Experience in the Gold Lot (DC3), this innovation transforms vehicles into
their own automated, autonomous valet. The Automated Valet Parking allows
drivers to leave their car at the entrance of a parking lot or structure and
let the car find a suitable space to park itself. Drivers remotely activate
the fully automatic parking feature using their smartphone. Similarly, they
can use their smartphone to call their car to pick them up when they leave.
- Eye Control Systems. Valeo developed a driving assistance system controlled
by eye movement that will be demonstrated at the Valeo booth in the Central
Plaza (CP10). This eye control technology is based on interaction between the
vehicle's human machine interface (HMI) and the driver's eyes. Using a gaze
detection camera, the driver can change the radio station or get traffic
information, among other activities, simply by looking at a control button.
When combined with Valeo's heads-up display (HUD) technology which projects
dashboard controls onto the windshield, this system allows drivers to activate
a control without taking their eyes off the road.
- FullLED Lighting Systems. Valeo's FullLED lighting system will be introduced
on the new Cadillac Escalade in the United States in 2014. In addition to its
innovative design, LED technology makes it possible to develop headlamps that
outlast the operational life of the car.
When equipped with Valeo's PremiumLED system, headlights become intelligent;
those equipped with BeamAtic® PremiumLED provide maximum visibility, without
blinding oncoming or passing vehicles.
Valeo's participation at the 2014 CES aligns with the Group's innovation
strategy which aims to make driving more intuitive and more intelligent for
all vehicle categories. The Group's objective is to create systems that reduce
CO emissions and energy consumption, while at the same time enhance driving
