Jaguar Land Rover trials ‘morphable’ seat system
Research project is part of JLR’s commitment to enhance customer wellbeing through technological innovation
Jaguar Land Rover’s (JLR) Body Interiors Research division is conducting trials of ‘morphable seat system that continually adjusts to optimize occupants’ wellbeing on long journey, the automaker said in a press release last month. The shape-shifting seating system uses a series of actuators in the seat foam to create constant micro adjustment that makes a vehicle occupant’s (driver or passenger) brain think that they are walking. Each seat can be suited for different drivers, much like memory seats one finds currently in modern cars.
