Visteon Corp. has introduced what it claims to be the industry’s first fully digital cluster displaying holographic objects on the all-new PEUGEOT 208. Part of PEUGEOT’s unique 3-D i-Cockpit, the instrument cluster represents the first real 3-D cluster in automotive production, Visteon says.

Partnering with Groupe PSA to develop a pioneering “3-D Blade” concept, Visteon’s digital cluster displays advanced reflections to create the impressions of 3-D graphics. The cluster is composed of a high-definition 10.25-inch “background’ thin-film transistor (TFT) and a 7-inch “foreground” TFT projected on a semi-reflective blade. The display creates a 3-D projection of approximately 15 mm between the front and rear images.

“Visteon’s first-to-market solution brings 3-D technology to an exciting vehicle segment with mass market appeal,” said Loick Griselain, vice president, Visteon customer groups. “With distracted driving continuing to pose a challenge, presenting critical information to the driver in intuitive ways will be the key to successful, next-generation human-machine interaction (HMI) development. The PEUGEOT 208 cluster exemplifies how all-digital clusters enable automakers’ HMI designers to give a perception of depth in displays to highlight critical information for the driver.”

The PEUGEOT 208 cluster’s projection offers styling teams the flexibility to create depth with rotating menus and shadow effects and also bring a distribution of key information to the driver – including priority information such as speed and alerts. The display also allows animations to pass dynamically from the foreground to the background in ADAS modes or as 3-D animations in a number of configurable colors and skins.

The PEUGEOT 208 3-D cluster is the first of several variants in the Groupe PSA brand line up to be launched over the coming years in a number of sizes. Sharing the same platform as the DS3 CROSSBACK instrument cluster, the PEUGEOT 208 3D cluster – with its two TFTs surrounded by tell-tale satellites – also provides high-quality graphical content with animations and 3-D content on both screens, in a complex and calibrated mechanical structure. This allows a true sense of depth to the driver, without distraction, according to Visteon.

The 3-D technology is available on high-end versions of the new PEUGEOT 208, while the entry-level model is fitted with an analog cluster – also provided by Visteon.
