Computer for the integrated digital cockpit of the future

The integrated digital cockpit of the future will consist of multiple displays powered by a single domain controller for instrument cluster, infotainment, connectivity, HUD and driver monitoring functions. The domain controller consolidates ECUs, offering higher CPU and GPU computing power for an improved user experience. It also lowers system cost and simplifies OTA software updates, while reducing weight and power consumption, which are increasingly important for electric vehicles. Visteon’s SmartCore™ was the industry’s first domain controller – launched with Mercedes Benz in March 2018.

Best-in-class digital experience for commercial vehicle

With the evolution of SmartCore™, Class 7 and above commercial vehicles can now offer the same digital cockpit electronics experience as well-equipped passenger vehicles. SmartCore™ drives large multiple digital displays, seamlessly blending vehicle information and infotainment features to enhance convenience, comfort and productivity. Dual Bluetooth™ technology enables concurrent connection of the driver’s business and personal phone to the infotainment system, reducing distraction. It takes the driver experience to the next level by supporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as well as allowing integration of third-party applications for navigation and fleet management.
