Leading automotive electronics supplier launches applications for connectivity inside and outside the vehicle

LAS VEGAS - Visteon Corporation's (NYSE:VC) latest connectivity solutions will take center stage at its exhibit during the 2014 International CES® Jan. 7-10. These solutions inform and entertain through smartphone integration, wireless data connections, media access and reproduction technologies, and are designed to seamlessly receive and transmit information from the vehicle.

With more than 50 billion devices predicted to be connected to a multi-disciplinary ecosystem in 2020, intelligent connectivity turns the vehicle into a service provider that knows the needs of its occupants and can offer assistance.

Visteon's advanced connectivity solutions are designed for intuitive operation, significantly reducing driver workload and allowing the driver and passengers to benefit from connected vehicle features while mitigating distraction.

Premiering at the event is Visteon's OpenAir™ brand of connected premium audio and infotainment products based on open architecture, human-machine interaction (HMI) command and controls, and off-board wireless data connections. OpenAir delivers flexible multi-device connectivity and advanced infotainment solutions while managing content to deliver a rich user experience. The range's OpenAir I1.0 infotainment product offers superior performance and features for its segment. 

Visteon's OpenAir A1.0 connected audio solution was recently launched for a global vehicle manufacturer. Delivering Bluetooth®, voice control and integrated smartphone connection to Cloud applications, this tailored solution is being used across multiple, high-volume vehicle platforms.

The OpenAir connected vehicle demonstrator, developed in partnership with Compuware, delivers a ground-breaking connected vehicle software framework that produces an HMI experience anticipating a driver's need. Combining behavioral data and driver preferences with apps and environmental input, the HMI intelligently prioritizes data by displaying the most timely and relevant information.

"Industry forecasts predict more than 150 million connected cars on the road by 2020," said Martin T. Thall, president, Visteon Electronics. "Visteon is committed to delivering connected automotive technologies for drivers and passengers which extend their digital lifestyles on the road - simply and safely."

Also making its debut at the show, Visteon's OASIS concept - an acronym for optimized, adaptable, secure, intelligent and seamless connectivity - protects the vehicle communication network by ensuring  vehicle connectivity to the user and Cloud computing. A secure data pipe actively switches methods (modem, phone tether or Wi-Fi®) to maintain a seamless connected experience to the Cloud. The cockpit is adaptable through personalization options, off-board computing and over-the-air updates. Visteon collaborated with Cisco on this advanced development project.

For connectivity "outside" the automobile, vehicle-to-vehicle or vehicle-to-infrastructure communications - known as V2X - offer significant potential for increased vehicle safety by dynamically sharing relevant information with other similarly equipped vehicles.  Introducing an application-ready V2X platform, Visteon's solution is designed to maximize the communications range and more quickly notify drivers of possible issues nearby.

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