The new model of Peugeot’s 208 subcompact family comes with a digital instrument cluster that can display holographics objects. The cluster is a product of Visteon Corporation. Also Hyundai is testing 3D displays in the vehicle cockpit.
imagine a future virtual cockpit. The focus of the development work is the intuitive operation of all essential functions, the company says. The Hyundai developers are using touch displays with haptic feedback in the steering wheel and center console to reduce the number of conventional controls. For this purpose, the instrument cluster display has been changed to a multilayer display. This enables a natural way of reproducing information. The multilayer display consists of two displays mounted one behind the other at intervals of several millimeters. The spatial distance between the two displays enables visual 3D effects. The information given on the steering wheel displays changes depending on the settings of the instrument cluster. In addition, the driver can change the layout and the "key combinations" displayed on the steering wheel for entering specific applications.
