Amberg, August 27, 2019 – Following the great success of the first congress in 2017, Grammer AG is organizing the second International Comfort Congress in conjunction with the University of Salerno (Italy), Nottingham Trent University (United Kingdom) and the University of Technology of Amberg’s partner city Delft (Netherlands).

The 2019 International Comfort Congress (ICC) is being held on August 29 - 30 in Delft and will be providing a forum for research into product comfort. At the congress, representatives from the research community and industry will be able to discuss and share ideas on methods for evaluating and quantifying comfort. In two parallel series of over 50 presentations, a holistic approach will be taken to vehicle comfort and particularly human/product interaction.

The findings of the International Comfort Congress will be subsequently leveraged in the methodology development and process assessment of Grammer AG’s research and development activities.


First-time presentation of the “PURE: the freedom to move” project

During the ICC, the experts at Grammer AG will be unveiling the new interior concept known as “PURE: the freedom to move” for greater driving comfort in autonomous vehicles.

Grammer has launched the “PURE” project in order to stay ahead of the major megatrends such as autonomous driving, connectivity and digitalization. Working with an internationally renowned automobile design studio, Grammer is developing the products of the future.

The “PURE” project mainly concentrates on the core aspects of comfort, ergonomics and safety. In this connection, aspects such as motion sickness, the modularity of interior components, sustainable materials, new functions and the mobile workplace are being explored in detail to prepare for interior of the future in 2035.
