Reconfigurable Tactile Control Displays 2004-21-0067
To facilitate driver effectiveness, in light of a barrage of features and functions, coupled with continuous price/performance pressures, a new approach is necessary. This objective is met with the development of the Reconfigurable Tactile Display.
The focus has been to improve the average driver’s ability to control the vehicle with minimum distraction through the application of tomorrow’s sensory, telematic and electronic capabilities. This breakthrough - an interior system blending Automotive and Consumer electronics - is elegantly simple yet dramatic, affordable and familiar to all. It employs reusable design and hardware, has novel customization possibilities, and appears to meet today’s FMVSS 101 regulations without change.
The paper will describe a center stack application and how it blends the simultaneous objectives of lower cost, improved reliability and reduced development time. A key feature is a display surface of over 100 square inches on which camera feeds, navigational maps, and telematic data are displayed.
