The project endeavours to develop a smart electronics solution that could be widely applied in the automotive seat industry. The technology offers utilizing automatic regulation in order to achieve a gradual periodic pressure change. This periodic changes occurs seamlessly, without the notice of the passenger, and even may naturally help to circulate the blood pressure in the seated traveller’s legs.

This innovative solution in smart electronics is enabled by R&D collaboration among a Czech university (TUL) and electronics company (Elitronic), Turkish automotive seat manufacturer (Diniz Adient), Turkish end-user long-distance bus producer (MAN), and a Turkish R&D company that provides the most suitable seat material (FLOKSER).
