CES 2019: Visteon gives a glimpse to future of the digital automotive cockpit

08 January 2019

Visteon Corp. will showcase its next generation of Smart Core digital cockpit at CES 2019, taking place this week in Las Vegas.

The company will demonstrate how its Smart Core cockpit domain controller and its scalable Drive Core autonomous driving controller can create a seamless human-machine interface between the driver and the vehicle.

“While autonomous driving gets all the hype, what we see is automated driving becoming a reality first, a feature based system that does functions such as help with driving on a highway or parking valet operations without a driver,” Upton Bowden, director of advanced technology development at Visteon told Electronics360.

The cockpit of the future will include a domain controller that integrates the instrument cluster, infotainment and other functions into a single engine control unit (ECU) with advanced graphics, over-the-air software updates and cybersecurity.

Visteon believes the next-generation cockpit will feature a large, high-resolution curved display that enhances the driving experience without limiting the interior panel design. The cockpit of the future will include machine learning-based voice recognition and text-to-speech as well as in-cabin driver and passenger detection and identification technology.

In addition, Visteon will show off new display technologies for the cockpit based on LCD and OLED displays, including some with curved and non-rectangular shapes. Other demonstrations include a new VX display with integrated haptic feedback, proximity sensing and knob-on-glass features, and a vehicle-to-everything (V2X) module that works with dedicated short-range communication or cellular networks.
