The correct seat position setting is one of the most important prerequisites for a safe and comfortable journey. With our Seat Comfort Systems we help drivers and passengers to achieve this quickly and simply at any time.
Manual Seat Adjustment
To provide the user with the full extent of comfort and safety, electric seat adjustment axes are a basic necessity. In addition to the usual fore-and-aft, seat height, backrest angle and headrest height adjustments, it is also possible to electrically adjust the seat angle, seat length, backrest width, upper backrest angle, and even the footrest. The seat is moved manually into the desired position by pressing the corresponding operating controls – either conventional switches or a modern human-machine interface.
Memory Seat Adjustment
With the aid of specially designed positioning logic, it is possible to save user-defined seat positions and to recall them again later. This logic can be implemented either electrically with corresponding sensors, or algorithmically as Sensorless Positioning (SLP). In addition to simple position saving, there is also the possibility of saving to key memory. Here the driver's seat position is saved and then automatically set when the vehicle is unlocked with the remote key or when the door is opened. For coupes with limited space in the interior, a special feature is available for easy vehicle entry and exit. The seat in front is temporarily moved into a position that gives the user more room. For this function, a high-speed motor for fore-and-aft adjustment is often installed. To ensure safety even with automatic seat adjustment, we offer an anti-pinch feature for the main adjustment axes, which stops automatically and reverses when it detects an obstacle.
