Hoana Partners with Auto Seat Maker Faurecia to Introduce Active Wellness at Auto Shanghai 2015
Utilizing Hoana’s state-of-art sensor technology and advanced proprietary algorithms, the Active Wellness™ seat is the first of its kind prototype, designed to better connect a vehicle to the driver. The seat invisibly monitors the driver’s physiological information and instantaneously translates these invisible “driver demands” to changes in the cockpit environment, culminating in a more comfortable experience. It is the world’s first vehicle seating system that not only detects the physical and mental status of occupants but also invokes countermeasures to restore travelers to a healthy driving condition.
