THE FULL-LED TECHNOLOGY FOR AUTOMOTIVE LIGHTING - Magneti Marelli Automotive Lighting has developed in 2007 the world’s first mass-produced full-LED headlamp, featured by more than 20 innovative concepts. The first full-LED headlamp also traces the path for the future with regards to reduction in fuel consumption and emissions.
GASOLINE DIRECT INJECTION TECHNOLOGY (GDI) - An advanced injection system for gasoline engines that, combined with turbocharger, allow engine downsizing, improved performances, and significant reductions in fuel consumption and emissions.
AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) - A electro-hydraulic mechanism for automating manual transmission which derives from Formula 1 which combines comfort of use with a reduction in consumption. The AMT can be applied to any transmission, with production costs that are consequently lower compared to traditional automatic transmissions.
MULTIFUEL TECHNOLOGIES: FLEXFUEL SFS® E TETRAFUEL® - The TetraFuel® system enables a car’s engine to run on four different types of fuel. This allows consumers to choose whether to refuel with petrol, alcohol/petrol (a blend of petrol and 22% alcohol), pure alcohol or compressed natural gas.
SOLUTIONS FOR HYBRID/ELECTRIC DRIVE - Magneti Marelli maximized the experience acquired in Formula 1 with KERS (the Kinetic Energy Recovery System), and in systems and components aimed at mass-produced hybrid and electric engines.
KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) - Developed for some Formula 1 teams, the KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) it’s a system that turns mechanical energy under braking into electrical energy that can be stored into devoted batteries.This energy is made available to the pilot, who can decide to reuse it in specific situations – straight stretches, while overtaking other cars or at strategic points of the track.
INFOTAINMENT AND TELEMATICS - For many years now, one of Magneti Marelli’s specific area of expertise is the development and production of infotelematic systems, which are on board devices able to integrate entertainment (radio, music, etc.), navigation, telematics, phone, connectivity, and much more.
THE OPEN-SOURCE PLATFORM GENIVI COMPLIANT - Magneti Marelli presented the first open-source platform for in-vehicle infotainment devices. The platform complies with automotive requirements in terms of performances and durability, and, at the same time, is equipped with software developed and certified according to GENIVI Alliance compliance specification, consisting of over 150 companies located around the world.
TELEMATIC BOX - The “telematic box” is an electronic control unit that can, at the same time, detect vehicle position and operation data and send and receive information from outside the vehicle thanks to the GSM module. This device is able to fulfill different functions and applications related to infomobility, safety and to the services associated with intelligent mobility management.
INSTRUMENT CLUSTERS - The traditional business of this division, the instrument cluster provides drivers with information such as speed, revs, fuel level and water temperature. Magneti Marelli Electronic Systems develops and manufactures instrument panels with integrated monochromatic displays (dot matrix), or the increasingly common colour display. It also manufactures more complex, fully reconfigurable clusters which can perform gateway functions.
SYNAPTIC DAMPING CONTROL - An innovative oscillation damping system. By controlling the shock absorbers, the Synaptic Damping Control reduces oscillations of the vehicle body under all driving conditions, thus ensuring the highest levels of safety, comfort and handling.
