LAS VEGAS, Jan. 3, 2014 — Visteon Corporation (NYSE:VC) presents its new connected cockpit electronics solution developed in collaboration with Renault at the 2014 International CES® at the Las Vegas Convention Center, (Central Plaza #20) from Jan. 7-10.
Unveiled at the LeWeb’13 Paris event in December, Visteon’s cockpit demonstrator offers an insight into ways drivers and passengers can interact with autonomous driving features for driver delegation.
As Renault’s chosen architect and system integrator, Visteon delivered the cockpit electronics user experience for the demonstrator. The many connected car functions are demonstrated via a multi-modal human-machine interface of voice, touch and advanced displays. The cockpit enables drivers and passengers to seamlessly continue their “digital lives” in the vehicle by offering access to features such as video calls while in autonomous driving mode.
“Building on many years of innovation and concept collaboration with Renault, the cockpit demonstrator showcases Visteon’s core strengths in delivering innovative user experiences,” said Martin T. Thall, president, Visteon Electronics. “Combining our flexible hardware and open software solutions, we are able to provide our customers with a powerful platform for innovation and advanced development projects.”
Working within an ecosystem of mainly non-automotive technology partners, Visteon used agile development methods to deliver the connected cockpit concept in a very short timeframe. Applying its proprietary user interface software framework, Visteon was able to integrate rapidly changing requirements throughout the development process.
