Interior Comfort and Passive Safety

The Interior Comfort and Passive Safety Vehicle Domain targets technologies and materials enhancing vehicle comfort as well as enhancing occupant safety, for example airbags.

A vehicle’s interior is a combination of style, comfort, safety, and usability. The types and quality of material, the functionality, and the aesthetic together play a part in vehicle’s desirability and the consumer’s satisfaction.

Additionally, emission compliance continues to drive the use of lighter materials to reduce mass, and a focus on sustainability is driving the use of more natural materials.

The Comfort and Passive Safety Vehicle Domain provides insight, context, data, and analytics for the key systems making up a vehicle’s interior and shows how materials and functionality are changing to meet consumer demand and emission compliance.

Users can quickly access key insights from market developments, put context around events and technological trends, dive into deep data and forecasts, and seamlessly drive analytics to support their most challenging decisions.

Topics covered:

  • Passive safety systems and subsystems (e.g. airbag modules)
  • Decorative and interior finish (e.g. door trim panels, seat materials)
  • Sunroof, cockpit, and seat comfort functions 

Planners and strategists use the Vehicle Domain to:

  • Assess the evolution of materials used in a vehicle’s architecture
