Automotive electronics supplier debuts LightScape™ brand of premium instrument clusters at show

LAS VEGAS - Visteon Corporation (NYSE:VC) exhibits its industry-leading portfolio of advanced and production-ready automotive user interface solutions at the 2014 International CESŪ, Jan. 7-10.

Combining superior graphics display performance with touch, voice, sound and haptic technologies, Visteon's automotive solutions deliver a human-machine interaction (HMI) experience that consumers intuitively recognize from their mobile devices.

Making its debut at the show, Visteon's LightScape brand of premium instrument clusters features reconfigurable, high-resolution color displays offering clarity and graphics quality considered unmatched in the automotive market.

The range's advanced concept, the high-performance digital LightScape D3.0, incorporates complex 3D graphics, camera inputs and video features for driver awareness, presented through a superior quality 12.3-inch display.

A LightScape performance-level instrument cluster, featuring multiple high-resolution displays, is scheduled for launch with a premier European vehicle manufacturer in 2016.

"Visteon is delivering HD-quality displays that satisfy consumer preferences for fully reconfigurable automotive user interfaces with high-resolution graphics," said Martin T. Thall, president, Visteon Electronics. "We are providing highly relevant information to the driver, more intuitively, to successfully deliver a user-experience raising the bar for automotive applications."

Visteon is also exhibiting a range of advanced cockpit concepts exploring innovative approaches for drivers and passengers to safely interact with the vehicle's cockpit electronics system.

The HMeye cockpit concept features an innovative user interface which, enabled by camera technology, is controlled by the driver's eye gaze and head direction data, coupled with image attribute tracking. Selection controls are retained on the steering wheel to improve response time while allowing the driver to focus on the road ahead. Further input methods can be added to offer a wide range of features without compromising the interface's response time.

Visteon's Horizon Cockpit explores the application of emerging disruptive technologies related to HMI. Using 3D gesture recognition to interact with the HMI menu structure, an advanced camera system maps the driver's gestures through a full kinematic spatial hand which, in turn, replicates the motion as a virtual hand on the cockpit's display.

The Horizon Cockpit also features a unique dual-layered display offering two depths of view, enabling the user to virtually "push" through the graphics on the first pane to access the second. The cockpit also incorporates a further touch-sensitive pad, creating a virtual touch screen.

Visteon's exhibit is located in the Central Plaza #20, at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Visteon Electronics, a division of Visteon Corporation, is a leading supplier of automotive cockpit electronics that delivers innovative in-vehicle user experiences through solutions in user interfaces, connectivity and open architectures. Supported by a global network of 16 manufacturing facilities, four technical centers and 11 customer centers, Visteon Electronics employs approximately 5,000 people in its consolidated operations.
