Hyundai Mobis is entering the market for digital clusters, a field which is on the rise as a driving information display solution for autonomous cars. For this, Hyundai Mobis produced a cluster equipped with a 7″ display and applied it to Hyundai Kona EV. The company is also aiming to induce the development of a next-generation cockpit optimized for the era of autonomous driving.
A cluster is a dashboard that displays driving information items such as speed, mileage and alerts. It is an essential part of the cockpit designed to connect the driver with the vehicle. In the era of autonomous driving and connectivity, a cluster is getting increasingly important in step with the sharp increase in driving and traffic data to be provided to drivers. On that note, analog clusters are being replaced quickly by digital clusters which can effectively display large amounts of data.
By entering the market, it is striving to actively respond to future car technologies such as autonomous driving and connectivity and enable them to become new growth drivers while focusing on developing infotainment and ICT parts.
Hyundai Mobis has worked on developing a cluster, which is a core part of the cockpit to secure competitiveness in Level 4 autonomous driving. By starting mass production of the cluster, following (1) head-up display (HUD), (2) surround view monitoring (SVM) and (3) audio/video/navigation (AVN), Hyundai Mobis has now come to secure all of the four core infotainment technologies. It is known that there are only a few global automotive suppliers who have acquired all of the four core infotainment technologies.
With this, Hyundai Mobis has laid the foundation for situating itself in a more competitive position for developing next-generation cockpits optimized for autonomous driving and connectivity. The next-generation cockpit delivers a set of various infotainment features in a single large cluster screen by integrating HUD, SVM and AVN with the digital cluster.
At this year’s CES, Hyundai Mobis had presented various future car displays applied to a next-generation cockpit, which reflects user experience. More specifically, it showcased a total of four displays placed respectively on the cluster, steering wheel, room mirror and console box.
