‘SENSE WHAT’S COMING’: MAGNETI MARELLI EXHIBITS THE LATEST IN AUTONOMOUS DRIVING, CONNECTIVITY AND HYBRID/ELECTRIC MOBILITY SOLUTIONS
Magneti Marelli is showcasing its market-ready technologies in electronics, automotive lighting, and alternative powertrain, with a focus on autonomous driving, advanced HMI, connectivity and hybrid/electric mobility.
“Our leadership in automotive technology helps OEMs bridge the gap as the industry evolves; we provide solutions for the vehicles of today and the car of tomorrow,” said Pietro Gorlier, CEO of Magneti Marelli. “Our ability to collaborate across business lines, and integrate multiple vehicle technologies to deliver a super user experience is a distinctive asset.”
Smart Corner™ helps light the way to autonomous driving
Building on its recent investment in solid-state LiDAR company LeddarTech, Magneti Marelli has integrated a camera, radar and LiDAR into advanced projector headlamps and tail lamps to produce the fully functional Smart Corner, which will be on display in a production vehicle. Smart Corner enables automotive designers to incorporate advanced lighting and sensor systems while enhancing styling aesthetics and world-class performance.
Advanced Human Machine Interface (HMI) Displays
Magneti Marelli is featuring a variety of displays, ranging from low-cost designs to a full door-to-door display with controlled content distribution. The company’s Portal Showcase provides content for everyone in the vehicle, incorporates AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) technology, and a thin 1.5mm thick display bonded to a curved surface.
Analog, hybrid and full digital instrument clusters can also be seen in the booth.
Vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication promotes safety
Visitors to the Magneti Marelli booth will see how the company seamlessly integrates V2X into the HMI of a current production cluster. V2X technology can prevent 80% of all accidents for unimpaired drivers, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation, by alerting them to dangers that conventional onboard equipment cannot detect. Magneti Marelli’s V2X solutions expertly integrate driver warnings within the HMI, displaying them in the instrument cluster or center stack.
Alternative powertrain solutions for mild hybrid and electric driving
One of the most innovative solutions on display at CES is a mild hybrid 48 volt belt starter generator (BSG), an electric motor with integrated electronics that replaces a standard alternator. The BSG recovers energy from braking, driving it back to power the internal combustion engine (ICE) and electrical systems. Coming in at 400 volts, Magneti Marelli’s power inverter module (PIM) supports medium range electric mode driving, up to 30 miles or more on a single charge. It is built to withstand harsh vehicle under-hood requirements, such as high temperatures and vibration.
