Driving isn’t just about getting from point A to B anymore. Car buyers expect a total driving experience – and with good reason. They now have more features to choose from thanks to the emergence of innovative AV technologies, wireless networks, and mobile apps. Consumers weigh options like premium sound quality, advanced graphical displays, and device connectivity alongside comfort, convenience, fuel-efficiency, and safety.
Delivering this total driving experience poses new challenges for car manufactures. They need to provide the in-vehicle interactivity, connectivity and entertainment features that consumers demand. They also need to ensure optimal driver control and vehicle safety.
The ideal in-vehicle “infotainment” system must therefore seamlessly combine interactive entertainment with easy-to-use heads-up-displays (HUDs) and consoles. Our relentless ambition at Socionext is helping automakers do just that.
The Socionext "All-in-One" Automotive HMI Solution
The Socionext "All-in-One" automotive HMI solution, powered by the latest version of our market-leading CGI Studio suite, makes it easy for automakers to create an in-vehicle experience that is intuitive, graphical and easily customizable. This next-generation automotive platform offers seamless interaction between the cluster and IVI (In-Vehicle Infotainment) system.
The Socionext All-In-One automotive HMI is a multi-architecture solution supporting multiple full HD displays running at 60 fps – all controlled by a single device. System engineers can seamlessly integrate multiple screens and surfaces.
Underlying our All-in-One automotive HMI design is the concept of convergence – ensuring that all component controls and interfaces are cohesive and simple. For example, content can be moved from one display to another with simple touch- or voice-enabled controls.
CGI Studio is both hardware and operating system agnostic and therefore very powerful and flexible. It supports all available rendering technologies (OpenVG, OpenGL 1.1/2.0/3.0) and gives the freedom of choosing a variety of target systems. The suite includes a control library where designers can select from pre-existing controls, animations, materials, shapes, and design templates. CGI Studio supports both 2D and 3D HMIs.
The Socionext All-In-One automotive HMI is ideal for next-generation automotive HMIs, Cluster and IVI Rear-seat entertainment systems. Applications include modular car computers and domain computing architectures, as well as HVAC units and climate control systems. Contact us if you have further needs.
