Yanfeng Visteon Automotive Electronics (YFVE) is showcasing its Advanced Cockpit Electronics Interface (ACE-I) system at the Beijing Auto Show.

“ACE-I ensures consumers have an in-vehicle infotainment experience that is easy to use,” said Matthew Cole, general manager of YFVE general manager, Matthew Cole.

“By leveraging Visteon’s capabilities in system integration and human-machine interaction, we created an intuitive system.”

The application features driver interaction with vehicle controls including navigation, video, audio, climate and driver information. Drivers choose to interact with the vehicle by voice, buttons or touch-sensitive commands.

ACE-I features a 7-inch colour reconfigurable Thin Film Transistor (TFT) screen with touch-sensitive functionality.

Alternatively, users can control all functions through steering wheel-mounted buttons or through Mandarin Chinese voice commands. Additionally, the screen allows handwritten input for navigation.

Users can play music or video through their preferred personal devices including SD cards, USB keys, MP3 players or Apple’s iPod devices.

Yanfeng Visteon – a joint venture between Visteon Corporation and Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation’s automotive components group, Huayu Automotive Systems – is showing the development on its Q-e concept car in Beijing.
