Autoliv Inc., a worldwide provider of automotive safety systems, announced that Veoneer has received two awards by CLEPA, the European Association of Automotive Suppliers.
On June 13, CLEPA organized the CLEPA Innovation Awards Gala for the third time in a row in The Hague, Netherlands.
The gala was a breakthrough for Veoneer’s LIV research platform, says the company. LIV demonstrates how the community can achieve greater safety benefits from automation, as the car and driver will work together to achieve the driver’s goals in a smooth and fast way. LIV is an artificial intelligence-equipped car with the capability to understand and respond to context. When driving with LIV, drivers will not shut systems off but instead continue to use them, thus increasing the safety benefits of all safety systems available.
LIV took second place in two separate categories: Safety and Connectivity & Automation – the only project to receive award in more than one category.
“This was a recognition that trust and human/system interaction will be a key to success in automation and autonomous driving,” said Jan Carlson, who will serve as chairman, president and CEO of Veoneer after the spin-off from Autoliv has been completed.
