Today he is responsible for the strategy of the company, his collection of frequent traveler cards, and most of the commercial stuff. gestigon has been working closely with the automotive industry since more than 5 years and demand a number of behavior tracking solutions at different shows including CES, IAA and others. Moritz has been driving this strategy and the focus of gestigon to have an automotive DNA since day one. Early 2017 gestigon was acquired by Valeo and is now a center piece of Valeo’s Interior Cocoon strategy to further improve automotive safety and enable enhanced usability and user experience. Additionally to his job as CEO of ‘gestigon – a Valeo brand’ he is part of the technology and startup scouting team of Valeo/corporate. Moritz is married, has kids and loves – if he is not working or at home – outdoor activities.
Proposal Title: Interior Cocoon as prerequisite for a safe, autonomous mobility
Summary: Most discussion about autonomous mobility cover the navigation of the car. But how will the passengers be able to use the additional time in the car and how can todays safety standards be transformed into the new epoche of mobility. Understanding passenger behavior, recognizing objects and creating an Interior Cocoon can be (part of) the solution. gestigon (being part of the Valeo group) is global market leader for full body-, behavior- and object tracking in the car interior. At the CES2018 we showed the first fully integrated Interior Cocoon solution in a real car & on the road. In this talk I will high light a number of the challenges, solutions and methodologies to provide interior tracking functionalities.
