PRAGUE R&D CENTER
The Valeo research and development center in Prague was established in 2002. At that time it was entirely focused on development of air conditioning units and control panels.
A new activity of developing systems for autonomous driving, namely parking assistance and active safety systems, started in 2013. Lane keep assistants, autonomous emergency braking or detection of vehicles in the blind spot of rearview mirrors are just a few examples of such active safety systems.
Valeo is a worldwide leader in driving and parking assistance systems also thanks to the contribution of the colleagues in Prague. The center provides the full R&D process including customer requirements analysis, system architecture, software development, mechanical and hardware design, testing in laboratory, vehicles tests on the test track in Milovice and in real road traffic.
Between 2013 and 2016 the team has grown to 500 engineers. That is the reason why the R&D center has moved to brand new premises in Prague-Strašnice including 5500 m² of office space, 3000 m² of laboratories and an additional track for vehicle tests.

Valeo Žebrák is a modern production factory established in 2001. It belongs to the Thermal Systems Business Group, contributing to greater driving comfort in the cabin (cold, warm). Valeo Žebrak is a manufacturer of evaporators, which are intended for installation in air conditioning systems for cars and trucks. The main customers are car manufacturers such as Škoda, Audi, VW, BMW, Nissan, Opel, Renault, TPCA, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, among others.
The evaporator is a key component of the air conditioning system in a car. It is located in the HVAC (heating, ventilation, air-conditioning) module behind the dashboard. The function of the evaporator is to cool down and dry the air that flows into the cabin. The cooling media of the air conditioning loop is injected into the evaporator through the expansion valve and its volume increases instantly. As a consequence of this pressure drop it cools down the surrounding air below the dew point and reduces humidity.
