Visteon technology meets cockpit electronics trends at CES® 2019
Marking 20 years of participation at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES®) 2019, Visteon offered a glimpse into the smart, learning, digital cockpit of tomorrow with its next-generation technology in Las Vegas from Jan. 8-11 - featuring integrated domain controllers, large free-form displays and AI-enabled voice assistants primed for a digital, electrified and autonomous future.
Welcoming influential engineering and purchasing leaders from more than 30 different global vehicle manufacturers, a total in excess of 1,300 visitors spent time in Visteon’s booth during the four-day CES event – with Visteon’s market-ready products catering for an electrified and autonomous future landscape. Visteon also engaged with nearly 100 investors, 35 journalists and more than 30 suppliers and tech partners during the CES show week.
Across the four show days, Visteon showcased 28 new products and technologies across its entire cockpit electronics portfolio. The integrated solutions displayed at CES are aimed at improving safety on the road while enabling seamless access to information – from personal devices, the vehicle and the Cloud – using the latest innovations in technology.
Visteon featured several iterations of its SmartCore™ cockpit domain controller platform showcasing personalized, harmonized displays as well as the functionality of a situational-aware domain controller. Included was a SmartCore™ controller with integrated applications from leading Chinese internet provider Tencent to deliver artificial intelligence in the cockpit for the China market.
“CES 2019 was a truly great show for Visteon. One particular customer went so far as to say that they had never seen any company go so deep in technology as Visteon at the show. That gives me satisfaction, proves that we are on the right track and that there is lot of potential here. I am very excited and optimistic about the future as a result.”
The centerpiece of Visteon’s exhibit was an integrated cockpit experience display, which demonstrated the interplay between SmartCore™ and DriveCore™ – which combine to create a seamless HMI between the driver and vehicle. This interface manages the experience of drivers and passengers as the vehicle seamlessly takes control from the driver, or gives it back, during the transition from Level 2 to Level 3 autonomy.
The DriveCore™ autonomous driving platform, which Visteon introduced at last year’s CES, returned with a wider range of offerings, including enhancements to DriveCore Studio™ through software from Microsoft that maximizes the power and scalability of the Cloud. Visteon used CES to highlight its Highway Pilot and Traffic Jam Pilot applications, which enable autonomous driving on highways under certain conditions.
CES 2019 provided an excellent opportunity to remind customer, investors and the media about Visteon’s industry-leading cockpit electronics technology as well as the growth trajectory of the company, driven by robust new business wins over recent years. With the realization that the adoption of Level 4 automation will not be seen until at least 2025, Visteon is focused on developing solutions that make vehicles and roads safer, before the advent of fully automated driving becomes commonplace.
