New Mobility Concept Debuts at CES

New Mobility Concept Debuts at CES

Here at Prospect Silicon Valley, we’re proud to support both clients and tenants as they develop innovative technologies. Together with Body Control Systems, our close partner fka (Forschungsgesellschaft Kraftfahrwesen mbH Aachen) debuted a mobility concept vehicle at CES in Las Vegas. The team at fka worked in collaboration with Body Control Systems to create this vehicle simulator. It was then finalized and assembled in the Simlab of its local US subsidiary fka SV Inc. in San José, CA, before being transported to the Consumer Electronics Show for demonstrations. The vehicle showcases autonomous driving features and new improvements to the driving mechanisms we’ve been accustomed to for so long (new side stick steering, rear view mirror placement, auto-pilot features). Take a look at the photos and information below and reach out to the fka SV team if you want to engage on a simulation project!
