Samvardhana Motherson Automotive Systems Group BV (SMRP BV), a Motherson company, and Valeo have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) which aims to create the automotive vehicle interior of the future through the integration of lighting systems with advanced surface finishes. Valeo’s innovative lighting systems will be integrated with Motherson’s new cabin interior modules and surfaces. Instrument panels, door panels, centre consoles and other interior trims will be completely redesigned using these new technologies.

This MOU sets the framework for this collaborative effort between Motherson and Valeo to create new solutions for interior lighting. By combining advanced interior surfaces and lighting solutions, the partnership will create new functionalities and give the materials new properties. The parties are joining forces to meet the future needs and demands of automakers who seek to deliver an enhanced illuminated and immersive interior experience.
