Some highlights include:

Valeo Predict4Range: Our software solution to range anxiety

Managing battery and motor temperature as well as maintaining optimal cabin conditions for passengers efficiently are key to maximizing range and battery life without compromising comfort. Valeo Predict4Range software predicts and drives the most efficient thermal management strategies of EVs for extended driving range (i.e. less charging stops with faster charging operations), and extended battery lifespan. The software integrates real-time data like outside temperature, wind speed, charging station maps, road elevation and electric vehicle parameters and offers up to 24% more range in real conditions compared to traditional thermal management control.

Valeo Predict4Range also takes into account daily vehicle usage and can use additional parameters, such as routes, driving behavior and habits to precisely calculate and optimize energy consumption.

Valeo smart immersive battery cooling system: Unlocking the full potential of EVs

Valeo's smart immersive battery cooling system combines an efficient dielectric fluid with a smart hydraulic architecture to improve overall performance of electric vehicles in terms of safety, efficiency, speed of charge , longevity and reduced environmental impact.

Valeo's smart immersive battery cooling system reduces charging time by 30% thanks to perfect cells’ cooling and preheating when needed in winter or reduces the average compressor consumption on a whole driving cycle of 5% to 8% compared to current best-in-class battery coolers for a given charging speed.

Also, the large structural modules that embed the fluid are made of Valeo OrganoSheet material, which provides robust mechanical crash protection and is as light as aluminum but 50% less carbon intensive.

Valeo has been awarded for an advanced development of this solution with a major European automaker in Q1 2023, accelerating the product maturity for the next EV application beginning in 2028.

Valeo ImagIn: Enjoy an immersive sound and light experience in your car!

Valeo and Sennheiser Mobility have combined their expertise to develop a unique multisensorial exploration where light meets an immersive sound audio system to create the illusion of a sound stage around each passenger, transforming every ride into a breathtaking soundscape.

The Valeo ImagIn interior lighting system is composed of projection modules, smart adaptable user-interfaces and software dedicated to projection and content management. Valeo ImagIn combines visual projected content with smart surfaces and sound for an immersive and intuitive experience for all passengers.

Zeekr x Valeo: A personalized lighting experience for premium EVs

The latest Zeekr car presented on Valeo’s booth integrates seamlessly modern technological elements while breaking from the traditional car segmented design thanks to its innovative front fascia equipped with Valeo Thinbilite 15 mm high bifunction lighting and two digital panels, made up of more than 1,700 LEDs, offering users a personalised and interactive lighting experience. Valeo is also delivering the interior ambient lighting for an exciting driving experience. Finally, the vehicle boasts an elevated brand identity thanks to a central illuminated logo seamlessly integrating an ADAS sensor.

Valeo and BMW teleoperation parking maneuvers: park cars safely from miles away

Using cameras already in series production and relying on Valeo’s V-Cloud secure platform, this solution developed with BMW gives a real-time live view of the surroundings and interior of the car, enabling teleoperation from a cockpit with high reliability. The ability to operate a vehicle safely and remotely has been developed for fleet management with use cases in automaker factories and for robotaxi companies.

Valeo PanoramaXR : share your journey experience with your loved ones

Mobility can be more than going from point A to point B. It can be a real journey or an experience we want to share with loved ones. With Valeo PanoramaXR, Valeo provides a remote solution that enables them to join you on their smartphone screen and enjoy a 360° view of your car driving environment as if it were filmed by a drone.

The Cocoon: The most extensive portfolio on the market for the Software Defined Vehicle

Valeo offers the market’s most complete portfolio of sensors (ultrasonic sensors, cameras, radars and LiDARs), complete with AI-based software, central compute units and zone controllers to host them.

Valeo x Teledyne FLIR Thermal camera: the world's smallest and most sensitive automotive grade night vision camera

Valeo has combined their expertise with Teledyne FLIR, the world leader in thermal cameras, to create the world's smallest and most sensitive Safety rated Night Vision camera. The thermal camera is a key enabler to extend the detection of vulnerable road users, animals, vehicles and road edges in all driving conditions. Fusion of the long wave infrared sensed detail with the visible light domain improves visualization for the driver and, coupled with other sensors such as LiDAR or Radar, provides enhanced feature detection capability in challenging scenarios and higher speeds.

Valeo INEEZTM Air charging: Never worry again about charge cables

Charging using cables, particularly in shared public spaces, can be a real headache. However, there is an alternative solution. The new Valeo IneezTM Air Charging system offers an efficient and lightweight solution to recharge a vehicle inductively, without any charge cables.

Valeo IneezTM Air Charging is the only wireless solution that uses an ultra low operating frequency, around 3kHz, offering a lighter, simpler and safer charging experience..

The Valeo IneezTM Air Charging is compatible with all wallboxes available on the market today and supports charging for autonomous vehicles that can just drive themselves onto an inductive charging area.

Valeo CycleeTM: Our mid-drive unit solution reaches new comfort of use

Adaptive and understanding of what riders want, Valeo CycleeTM boosts all rides, even the hardest ones, with its automatic seven-speed gear shifting and the highest gearbox torque level – 130NM – available on the market. Thanks to an improved reduction of around seven decibels of the noise of the complete electric propulsion solution, Valeo CycleeTM is now quieter than ever.

At CES 2024, Valeo CycleeTM will also launch its new HMI (Human-Machine Interface). Within a casing made of sustainable material, the new interface develops a unique aesthetic for better connectivity, adaptability, and ease of use by riders. We offer a scalable product and Valeo’s solution includes a 3 components system: a smart dock, a 2" touch display and a remote with a rotative throttle.

Valeo eXtended Reality Experience 2.0 : Enjoy unparalleled extended reality experiences

As cars become autonomous or as we wait EV charging, we want to use our time to work, relax or connect with friends

After presenting Valeo eXtended Reality Experience in a cockpit at CES 2023, Valeo is taking a step further at CES 2024 with a new experience using a VR/XR headset inside a vehicle. Using Valeo existing sensors and software, we create tailor-made solutions for gaming, relaxing or more global entertainment.

Leave the rush of CES for a moment and join us at the Piero’s to experience this technology in one of our demo cars!
