Development & approval of the AirPod 1.0
The design and production of the AirPod 2.0 are the result of many years of work.
The development of the first generation of AirPod allowed us in particular:
- To validate our process of manufacture of bodies,
(This experience allows us today to design a pre-series AirPod 2.0 without going through the prototype phase.)
- To make emerge the compressed air in all the new European standards.
(MDI had an AirPod tricycle approved in 2010 and then its work with the European authorities resulted in the fact that all new automotive standards will mention compressed air, the first being that of quadricycles, see below)
