At the 2019 CES show in Las Vegas, Visteon displayed some of their latest driver enhancement tech. Their vision for the automotive future of tech includes more digital cockpits, artificial intelligence and even augmented reality integration. Visteon Corporation is a company that many of you have probably never heard of, but have very potentially interacted with at some point. They are one of the largest suppliers of instrument clusters, head-up displays, information displays, infotainment, audio systems in the industry.
Their products show up in everything from Range Rovers to Mustangs. Whether it is a heads-up display, or a digital cockpit, you have probably interacted with at least something that they produce. At this year’s CES show in Las Vegas, you will see even more of what they can do. Furthermore, what may show up in your new car in the near future.
Tech of the automotive future
One such technology is the integration of non-rectangular, curved displays for the cockpit. Visteon is taking advantage of advances in display technology to help design screens that better integrate with the cockpit of the future. Specifically, Visteon plans to do this by making screens that are curved, or have a non-rectangular shape.
We hear the term machine learning quite often these days. But, it will also play a big part in the way we interact with cars of the near future. Using artificial intelligence to interact with in-car commands or other vehicles on the road is another way that Visteon intends to help propel the auto industry into the future.
How far will heads-up displays go?
Visteon contributes to many company’s use of Heads-up displays (HUDs). However, they are working to take that one step further, by integrating augmented reality into our new vehicles. In stead of having just a small portion of the windshield to display information, Visteon could use the entire windscreen to inform the driver about what the car is seeing and doing on the road. Specifically, Visteon envisions this technology as a way for passengers to worry less about autonomous technology. If you can visualize what the car is ‘seeing’ you may be less stressed out as a passenger.
Visteon will have a lot of their upcoming tech on display at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. While we are not at the show, we will continue to provide coverage right here on TFLcar.com.
Stay tuned for the latest news, views & real-world reviews and even more cool new tech coming from CES 2019.
Speaking of cars with loads of new tech features, the 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE comes loaded with the exact sort of technology that Visteon is working on. Check out the video below to see what we mean:
