Company from Brabant, the Netherlands invents technology for luminous car interior
Amsterdam, the Netherlands – Waalwijk-based company Stahl launched a new application at the Geneva International Motor Show this week. The company is a major automotive interior supplier and market leader when it comes to the chemical processing of leather products and synthetic materials.
Thanks to technology developed by Stahl, the seats, steering wheel, dashboard and door panels light up in the dark. Stahl developed the invention for the Swiss mobility laboratory Rinspeed.
Rinspeed, founded by renowned car designer and inventor, Frank Rinderknecht, used the so-called glow-in-the-dark technology in the interior of its self-driving sports car Stos.
In addition to Stahl, the American company Harman, and the Dutch company NXP (Known for secured and wireless data exchanges between vehicles and traffic objects), developed technology for the Stos sports car.
The sports car, which is equipped with a built-in drone, is a real eye catcher. It can be viewed at the Geneva International Motor Show until 13 March. Huub van Beijeren, Stahl's CEO, is proud of the delivery: “The whole car industry will be seeing this because developments like the self-driving car are turning car interiors into living spaces. Comfort is becoming increasingly important.”
