Visteon Presents New Cockpit Electronics System in Beijing

This year’s auto show in Beijing is not short on innovation, and a new product launched by Visteon’s Chinese division, Yanfeng, is a proof to that. The Advanced Cockpit Electronics Interface (ACE-I) system integrates a wide range of vehicle controls in a user-friendly, single-screen display.

Drivers choose to interact with the vehicle by voice, buttons or touch-sensitive commands. Each option enables complete functionality while allowing the driver to minimize personal distraction.

"ACE-I ensures consumers have a rich in-vehicle infotainment experience that is easy to use," said Matthew Cole, general manager of YFVE, Visteon Corporation's electronics affiliate in China. "By leveraging Visteon's capabilities in system integration and human-machine interaction, we created a highly flexible, intuitive system."

Visteon’s new cockpit electronics system features a 7-inch full-color reconfigurable Thin Film Transistor (TFT) screen with touch-sensitive functionality. However, drivers can also 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 is also showing this latest advancement on its Q-e concept car, which will be on display at the Beijing Auto Show 2010. An eco-friendly electric vehicle, "Q-e's unique styling transforms the vehicle into a personal mobile space for 'green' urban users, creating harmony between the city landscape and personal lifestyle. Addressing the needs of young car owners in cities, Q-e is an extension of the home, where multimedia, gaming functions and the Internet can be enjoyed.”
