Visteon displays revolution in dashboard technology

Visteon displays revolution in dashboard technology

Visteon instruments

Automotive instrument panel maker Visteon, has just displayed its vision for future car interiors that offers a different view of the dashboard.

One of the most interesting ideas Visteon has developed is a gauge cluster that can be customised by the user. Like traditional gauges, Visteon’s Reconfigurable Cluster displays speed and RPMs using classic needles and numbers. Untraditionally, though, the new design simulates those gauges with LCD displays that can be modified to present the information in almost any way possible. End customers could potentially even upload their own designs as electronic skins to make their instrument panels their own unique design.

The clear plastic hood surrounding the cluster isn’t merely decorative. When a door is open, the hood glows red. When lights are on, it turns blue. Turn signal indicators light up the entire left or right side yellow. Only time will tell if manufacturers impliment Visteon’s ideas.
