FRANKFURT -- Automobile providers are not just working to make for climate. Some also need clean hands.
At the Frankfurt autoshow, German parts manufacturer Brose showed off its latest inventions -- one of them, a back door which can be opened mechanically as well as a gas-tank door which can be opened using an easy gesture.
The back door uses electronic equipment similar to those discovered in automated liftgates, some thing the business makes, as well as mechanical and electric parts for seats and doors.
Brose sees a contact-free door as a relaxation attribute. When dropping-off the children at college, there is no more running around to ensure the door is shut securely.
Exactly the same thought inspired the gas-tank door, which slides open with only a wave of the hand. Brose sees it as an attribute for future electrified vehicles and luxurious cars."A just motion of the fingers will suffice later on to open the tank lid or engine hood contact-free," the firm said. "The edge: Your hands remain clean."
