Automotive cockpit prepares for autonomous driving
Software provider, Luxoft Holding, announces its second generation automotive cockpit technology. AllView II is based on the company’s reference design platform and complies with GENIVI Alliance requirements.
It encompasses a range of new and evolving user experience (UX) and HMI (human machine interface) concepts such as multi-modal input with touch, gesture, eye-tracking and natural language voice systems as well as classic controllers. It also shows how the user interface changes when a vehicle enters the autonomous driving mode, Car2x workload-adaptive HMI systems and seamless nomadic device integration for the connected car and IoT.
The AllView II cockpit-level HMI software system focuses specifically on the digital cluster, infotainment, driver monitoring, consumer-style driver inputs, and connected services, all contained within an integrated HMI software architecture and framework. Within the demonstration, UX and HMI focus on such concepts as natural language understanding and text-to-speech, gesture recognition and control and driver monitoring through eye tracking. In-vehicle infotainment (IVI) focuses on social media access through a messaging co-pilot that provides the ability to safely react and respond while driving. It also delivers wireless device and cloud services integration, as well as improved navigation, telecommunications, and climate control capabilities.
The concept demonstrator helps automotive OEMs and Tier-1 suppliers specify, design, and develop complete HMI, infotainment, connectivity, and telematics, while cutting costs and time-to-market, says the company. It highlights how automotive trends and technologies can be combined into a vehicle cockpit, integrating multiple screens, such as car head units and mobile devices.
