The current after-market automotive rear seat entertainment tablet headrest mounting solutions aren’t very aesthetically pleasing and they lack integrated inductive charging. The students on the Alps Alpine team will design and prototype an aesthetically pleasing solution that has wireless inductive charging integrated into it so the tablet will charge while connected to the headrest mount.
One of the challenges of validating radar sensors is testing them over a full range of environmental exposures. Students on the Aptiv team will design, build and test a temperature control environment to more accurately validate radars under a wide range of environmental conditions for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS).
In order for critical driver alert systems to be universally effective, they must be designed with the broad population in mind, including people with accessibility concerns. The students on the Arriver team will research and design a driver alert system that specifically targets drivers with accessibility issues such as deafness and color blindness.
