imat's material platform in focus at “Asia Vehicle Interior Design and Technology Summit”
On September 3 and 4, 2018, the Asia Vehicle Interior Design and Technology Summit 2018 takes place in Shanghai. The conference is considered one of China's key industry gatherings for car manufacturers, designers as well as tier 1 and tier 2 suppliers. The presentations provide insights into design concepts, technological developments and the latest regulations in the field of automotive interior. This year, the conference will focus on technologies and interior concepts for autonomous driving.
On the first day of the conference, imat-uve CEO Hans Peter Schlegelmilch gave his lecture "imat-research - The Brain of Materials". imat-uve operates a materials database with services for OEMs, laboratories and suppliers to drive the development of automotive interior materials.
A major challenge for automobile manufacturers is finding innovative materials for the automotive interior. This is where the digital material database comes in. The goal is to offer manufacturers a way to retrieve extensive information about materials and to simulate properties on the component. The platform also enables materials suppliers to present their products there. imat-uve supports both sides and brings them together in the platform. The further development of material and surfaces for use in the vehicle is a central service of imat-uve.
