Visteon Corp. announced it will showcase at CES 2020 a range of technology solutions designed to enhance safety and the driving experience by enabling the transformation of cockpits to all-digital environments.
Visteon will display innovative cockpit electronics technology platforms in four core areas:
• Driver Information – Industry-leading digital clusters and multi-display modules
• SmartCore – Industry-first cockpit domain controllers
• DriveCore – Enhanced safety domain controllers for Level 2-plus automated driving
• Infotainment – Scalable Android-based infotainment solutions
Digital displays are key enablers of the cockpit of the future, and as a highlight of its CES exhibit (Central Plaza, Pavilion 13), Visteon will debut a new digital display technology that delivers exceptional brightness and contrast with a rich color gamut. This patent-pending technology is designed to bridge the gap between LCD and OLED display technologies, keeping rigorous automotive requirements in mind. Visteon also will premiere a flexible rotating glass cockpit, which can bend around the driver in sport mode or bend back to flat mode to allow the front passenger to view the display.
In addition, Visteon will demonstrate the integration between its SmartCore cockpit domain controller and DriveCore ADAS/automated driving technologies. According to Visteon, these cockpit innovations establish a consistent human-machine interaction (HMI) experience between the driver and vehicle, enabling vehicles to seamlessly enable advanced automated safety functions, which will help smooth the transition from Level 2-plus to higher levels of autonomy.
“The cockpit is evolving to a fully digital environment with multiple curved, flexible displays that show information about the driving environment, vehicle dynamics and safety, as well as connected multimedia content,” said Sachin Lawande, Visteon president and CEO. “This transition requires the development of several new technologies to enhance the complete driving experience. As a global leader in multi-display modules and centralized computers, we will show our latest innovations that address this digital transformation at CES.”
CES 2020 will mark Visteon’s 21st year as an exhibitor, making it one of the longest-running show participants in the automotive industry.
