CES – Visteon displays Smartcore domain controller

Visteon says it is preparing to launch what it describes as an "industry-first," automotive grade cockpit domain controller with an unnamed European automaker on a global vehicle programme next year.

Visteon says it is preparing to launch what it describes as an “industry-first,” automotive grade cockpit domain controller with an unnamed European automaker on a global vehicle programme next year.

Visteon is displaying its iSmartCore-connected domain controller at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

The US supplier says with the average number of ECUs in high-end vehicles more than doubling during the past decade, it is “essential” to manage more efficiently the increasing cost and complexity of in-vehicle electronics.

SmartCore combines previously separate instrument clusters, head-up displays (HUD) and advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) domains on a one-chip, multi-domain controller that can be accessed through an integrated human machine interaction (HMI).

“SmartCore is a game-changing technology that offers significant advantages over traditionally separated and non-connected infotainment systems, instrument clusters and ADAS controllers,” said Visteon president and CEO, Sachin Lawande.

“Different operating systems can run side-by-side on one core and several levels of information – from safety-critical vehicle data to personal information from the Cloud – are combined into one system for the first time.

“This significantly improves efficiency and security, while reducing the cost of ownership in the cockpit.”
