The Soft & Firm Seat: How Innovation in Automotive Seating Can Improve the User’s Well Being 2001-01-0383

Comfort is more than ever one of the major factors of car performance. The seat, a central component of the vehicle interior, contributes heavily to this perception. The increasing partnership between car manufacturers and automotive system equipment manufacturers pushes Faurecia to propose not only standard components but also a complete seat, with its functional and safety criteria, as well as those including comfort. This last aspect is what we will treat here.
We are going to show you how the Soft & Firm Seat, a technical innovation developed by Faurecia, improves seat tactile and contact comfort behavior perceived by customers. This innovation has been designed according to Faurecia comfort methodology, using subjective assessment, objective measurements and simulation. Its validation concerns tactile and contact comfort, interactions with other comfort aspects and consequently the improvement of overall comfort.
