Faurecia, one of the world’s leading automotive technology companies and Japan Display Inc. (JDI), a leader in automotive displays, today announced a partnership to enhance the digital user experience in vehicles.
Faurecia and JDI will cooperate on the development and integration of large displays into automotive interiors. The two companies will leverage their know-how and expertise so that the functionalities and design of large displays will be a key element of cockpit attractiveness.
During CES 2019, Faurecia and JDI revealed a first illustration of their capabilities by showcasing a world premiere 32.1inches 6K display integrated into an instrument panel. Drawing on advanced mechatronics, kinematics, materials and design to offer an optimized user experience, the instrument panel surface smoothly adapts its shape and the display moves according to the driving or autonomous mode. During driving mode, the display can be used as a driving cluster giving information and safety signals as well as offer a central screen for navigation and media. In autonomous mode, the display transforms into a large format entertainment screen. This combined with front seats that can swivel inwards, creates a new shared ‘onboard cinema’ experience to share with all the family.
