  • Seat structure development
  • Seat upper body development (foam, covering, trim parts)
  • Integration of safety components
  • Virtual cover development, LECTRA
  • Seat construction for function test and crash test

Trends change the requirements for seat development

Trends in e-mobility and autonomous driving are leading to stronger differentiation in vehicle applications and concepts, with different requirements on the design and engineering of seats.

  • In vehicles for short distances, in inner cities for example, costs can be saved through the choice of materials and through a further reduction in weight.
  • For long trips, comfort-related functions gain even more significance.

In seat development, Bertrandt also takes new requirements on active and passive safety into account, and examines alternative material and engineering concepts.
