62 • RV PRO • January 2018 rv-pro.com O R I G I N A L E Q U I P M E N T OEMs will require a significant level of customization. Our goal with Furrion design is to help integrate these products. For example, parking sensors, pedestrian sensors and observation cameras can be designed into end caps. Or our digital electronics can be engineered to fit motorized dashes and create a better user experience for the driver." The Future is Now Fidler says that as technology changes, there needs to be more customization in the design of an RV – especially in the driver's area – in order to take advantage of that technology. Currently, more manufacturers are looking at technology such as driver-assist to keep a vehicle in its lane. Other upgrades include backup cameras and side cameras that require monitors in the dash area. And eventually, driverless technology could make its way into RVs. Fidler points to the automotive industry as an example of how Design and engineering, as well as integrating electronics into new products, are at the top of Furrion's priorities as the company moves forward, having established itself in the RV and marine industries. The inside of Furrion's concept motorhome shows some of the examples of the company's work of integrating electronics into RV design.
