Future Door Panel
The FDPanel is an R&D project whose purpose is to develop concepts of auto door panels that are attractive, comfortable, interactive, practical and futuristic for drivers/users, capable of guaranteeing them distinctive experiences in the automotive interior. The development of these new door panels, which are intended to be highly innovative, aims to replace the panels currently in production at Simoldes Plásticos for several OEMs (namely for PSA), with a view to their adoption for investment decisions in 3 years and their respective serial production within 5 years.
In particular, the projects aims to develop a distinctive and differentiating concept for the automotive interior Door Panel, integrating strong innovative solutions in terms of intrinsic architecture (UX/UI design) decoration (IMD or IMI), comfort (coating with thermal management properties), lighting (LED integrated in only one end of the panel and materials that transmit uniform light), visual information / alert interfaces and connectivity (V2X) and sound (MEMS speakers).
