Visteon's Next-Generation Vehicle Controls Offer Functions Familiar To Mobile Device Users

Stocks in this article: VC

VAN BUREN TOWNSHIP, Mich. , Oct. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Global automotive supplier Visteon Corporation (NYSE: VC) is actively demonstrating to auto manufacturers its latest advancements for vehicle controls – including features and functionality to which consumers have grown accustomed in their handheld devices.

(Logo: )

Visteon's extensive consumer research, supported by secondary data, shows that car buyers desire in-vehicle interfaces similar to those on their mobile phones, tablets and music players. Meeting these desires can be challenging for automakers that want to maintain brand identity and deliver a driving experience that is functional and promotes safety. Combining its research findings with its expertise in design and human-machine interaction (HMI), Visteon now can deliver an interface that is reliable, accurate and highly responsive.

Visteon's Ideal Occupant Interface has three features that are designed for easy use and offer superior craftsmanship:

  • Hidden Touch Lens – When the vehicle is off, the display is invisible behind the seamless touch-sensitive surface, presenting a clean, sleek look. When the vehicle is powered on, the display is easy to see in all lighting conditions.
  • Smart Panel – This feature detects the presence of the user's finger, but does not activate until a small amount of pressure is applied. It is enhanced with visual and audible feedback and will be expanded to include tactile feedback.
  • Multi-Modal HMI – This feature enables standard touch mode and the next advancement in vehicle interfaces - spatial gesture control, which doesn't require the controls to be physically handled by the user.

"Advancements in the consumer electronics industry are pushing auto manufacturers to quickly assimilate their vehicle interfaces," said Christian Feltgen, Visteon global director of cockpit electronics. "It's an exciting area of technology development, and Visteon is leading this progression with the capabilities demonstrated in our Ideal Occupant Interface."
