Valeo Wins Gold and Silver International "Grands Prix" Awards for Automotive Innovation at Equip'Auto
Paris (ots/PRNewswire) - At the Equip'Auto International Grands Prix awards ceremony held last night, Valeo (OTC:VLEEY) won the Gold Award for its e-Valve system in the "Engineering and Advanced Technology" category and the Silver award for the guideo driving assistance system in the "Aftermarket and Post-Equipment" category. The eXponentia(TM) technical training program of which Valeo is a partner, received a Gold Award in the "Services" category.
Valeo's e-Valve technology is based on a variable valve actuation system that replaces the conventional mechanical system for major fuel economy, improved engine performance and easier driving. It reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 20% while improving low end torque up to 20%. The e-Valve system is part of Valeo's Powertrain Efficiency Domain within which the Group develops micro-hybrid systems, thermal management and clutch systems which, when combined, can reduce overall fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 40%.
Guideo integrates several functions into one module: a lane keeping and lane departure warning system, a visual recording of the vehicle's trajectory in the event of abrupt acceleration or deceleration, and a warning for the driver when the vehicle in front moves forward, at a traffic light, for example. Guideo is part of an innovative post-equipment range of parking and driving assistance solutions proposed by Valeo, with each product contributing to a safer and more comfortable driving experience.
Valeo is an independent industrial group dedicated to the design, production and sale of components, integrated systems and modules for cars and trucks. It is one of the world's leading automotive suppliers. The Group has 133 production sites, 67 R&D centers, 9 distribution platforms, and employs 72,300 people in 29 countries.
