Top automotive companies have started spending a large chunk of money in the research and development of seats. Seating has successfully sought the attention of the customer. Child safety seat, lightweight seats were the first developments that started the revolution. Now, it has reached a whole new level. Some of the popular concepts in the seating industry are:
Sensor detection: The sensor detects the heart rate of the driver. Understanding whether he is feeling drowsy or not. The sensors act accordingly and apply massage to the body. This makes him feel relaxed and easy.
Memory: Memory is no longer limited to your mobile or PC. Even the seat can have memory now. Yes! The cars will have seats who record the behaviour of the user. The seating position, the height, the weight will be recorded by the seat and it’ll implement this according to the user. The seat will automatically adjust according to the driver’s height and posture.
360-degree Rotation: Now, you don’t have to sit tightly in your car in a single position. Your seat can rotate 360 degrees and you can move around easily. This also enables face to face communication with person seating behind.
Remote control: With new advancements, you can use a remote to adjust your seat. The sensor with a screen will accept the remote signal and will adjust the lumbar support, thigh support with respect to the occupant.
