Magneti Marelli’s Smart Corner, along with the company’s other high-tech solutions that increase communication and improve safety, will be showcased at CES Unveiled, Jan. 6, at Mandalay Bay, and at its exhibit at the Wynn Hotel, Latour Ballrooms 5-7, Jan. 8-10.

Smart Corner provides a flexible platform to incorporate sensing technology required by the OEM, and is designed to meet all sensor functions to enable Level 1-5 autonomous driving. Smart Corner minimizes the requirement for separate packaging, wire routing, connectors, and projections on the exterior of the vehicle, saving OEMs money and weight, according to the company.

“This prestigious recognition of Smart Corner is evidence of our ongoing innovation to support the future of mobility,” said Ermanno Ferrari, CEO of Magneti Marelli. “The possibilities with Smart Corner are very intriguing, as it promotes the development and seamless integration of additional autonomous functionality while improving communication and increasing safety.”
