Hyundai Virtual Cockpit Concept features touchscreen for safe driving

Hyundai Virtual Cockpit Concept features touchscreen for safe driving

Hyundai has integrated some of its latest and upcoming technologies in the i30 test car. The Korean automaker has also released details of its latest study on the future of virtual cockpit in cars. The i30 test car featured a touchscreen display instead of buttons or trackpad. The touchscreen will allow the driver to control the music system, menu, mode change and more. 

The new steering wheel is offered with wide bridges that connect to either sides to house two vertical displays. The display claims to offer easy configuration and provide consistent haptic feedback. The centre screen, on the other hand, provides one-touch access to climate control, music settings and more. The instrument cluster will get a multi-layer display, which creates a 3D effect by using two displays which are stacked behind each other at a distance of 6mm.     

Hyundai along with Wurzburg Institute for Traffic Science (WIVW) has conducted a study to determine if the new virtual cockpit can eliminate some of the distractions when the driver is behind the wheel. The new display design was able to meet all of the requirements put forth by vehicle safety associations including the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.  

More details about the technology will be known at a later date.
