Veoneer's LIV research platform bags CLEPA innovation award

by Autocar Pro News Desk , 19 Jun 2018


Autoliv, the global leader in automotive safety systems, has announced that Veoneer has received two awards by CLEPA, the European Association of Automotive Suppliers.

On June 13, CLEPA, the European Association of Automotive Suppliers, organized for the third time in a row the CLEPA Innovation Awards Gala, in The Hague, Netherlands.

Veoneer’s LIV research platform demonstrates how greater safety benefits can be achieved from automation, as the car and driver will work together to achieve the driver’s goals in a smooth and fast way. LIV is an artificial intelligence-equipped car with the capability to understand and respond to context. When driving with LIV, drivers will not shut systems off which often is the case in ordinary cars, but keep using them, thus increasing the safety benefits of all safety systems available.

LIV finished as second in two separate categories, Safety and Connectivity and Automation, the only project to receive award in more than one category.

“This was a recognition that trust and human/system interaction will be a key to success in automation and autonomous driving,” said Jan Carlson, chairman, president and CEO of Veoneer after the spin-off from Autoliv has been completed.
