Roof systems from Webasto open up new horizons

The rise of megatrends like electromobility and autonomous driving is changing the entire design language of vehicles. The trend is moving toward clean lines, large glass surfaces and high-tech features on the one hand and sensor integration and in-car entertainment on the other one. Webasto is leveraging this development to create innovative roof concepts that enhance comfort, design and the driving experience.

Autonomous driving

Sensor integration

For reliable 360-degree monitoring of the surroundings during autonomous driving, Webasto combines lidar and camera technologies in a fully functional manner in a slim panoramic roof. The compact Roof Sensor Module (RSM) can be seamlessly integrated into automakers’ production lines. Thermal management, de-icing and de-fogging functions, as well as a cleaning system, ensure that obstacles are detected in harsh weather conditions. 


Amazing features

Fascination high-tech glass

By day, panoramic roofs from Webasto offer generous views and an interior ambience that is bright and pleasant. At night, dynamic light effects create a real wow effect. The secret behind this is the almost invisible transparent print integrated into the glass. When the lights are switched on, the glass panel displays a wide variety of patterns – from geometric figures to a starry sky – in multiple colors.
