What’s In A Seat

As vehicles are becoming more advanced, we are finding technology where it never was before. Sometimes it is in plain sight, such as infotainment systems, GPS, and a head-up display. However, sometimes it is concealed in places one may not expect.

Automotive seats have gone from a simple place to comfortably sit, to a complex part of the vehicle. This makes it important to recognize these components, know where they are typically located, and understand how they work.
