The proliferation of electronic controls into the automotive industry is evident through almost every vehicle system. With this trend comes the complexity of developing a mechanical design, controls software and hardware, plus system calibration.

In this case Faurecia wasn’t adding electronics to a different part of the vehicle, but taking a new approach to an electronic window regulator design.
