SmartCore, launched earlier this year with an unidentified European OEM, is a cockpit domain controller technology platform. The product offers an integrated cockpit computer solution that integrates instrument cluster, infotainment and other emerging technologies for the cockpit on a single system-on-chip (SOC).
Geely’s new pure-electric modular vehicle platform will play an important role in the Group’s new-energy strategy, which includes introduction of various levels of products, across several vehicle types and two brands – Geely and Lynk & Co. Data on this new platform is free and open, helping reduce research and development investment, save procurement costs and shorten cycle times. The SmartCore-based cockpit controller is the first integrated domain controller solution that Geely has adopted for its vehicles.
Drivers and passengers of Geely pure-electric vehicles will benefit from an enhanced instrument cluster, GKUI intelligent travel ecosystem and infotainment experience, boosted by a single seamless human machine interface, offering access to multiple levels of information.
According to Visteon, SmartCore offers a cost-effective, space-saving cockpit electronics solution that is fully scalable and can be updated over-the-air. Its innovative human-machine interaction (HMI) approach has laid the foundation for the evolution to autonomous driving.
