Driver attitudes are changing when it comes to applying technology in the vehicle.

Well, everybody knows that... including suppliers, or rather, especially suppliers. For behind most carmakers innovations, there are suppliers who leave most of the glamour for the various brands, car brands, not theirs.

Today, not only drivers want information to assist them behind the wheel, but they also prefer their vehicles with unique appearances reflecting their personal style.

Based on these trends, Visteon Corporation leverages a variety of consumer research with its engineering expertise to understand changing consumer preferences, develop and then deliver technology for automakers that meets those demands.

And what can be more direct, in constant communication with the driver, than the instrument cluster?

Visteon’s instrument clusters provide vehicle information to the driver while delivering style enhancements to the vehicle for brand differentiation and customization, so that automakers can choose from various cluster technologies to find the one that delivers the desired look and feel of the vehicle’s interior and brand image.

Consumers can choose a more personalized, functional interior that suits their style. “Visteon has redefined vehicle information displays to meet the driver’s need for a clean, personalized, functional design and the automaker’s demand for customizable interiors,“ said John Kill, senior vice president and president, North America customer group.

Reconfigurable Cluster, which allows software-based customization.

Visteon cluster designs utilize common components within the instrument cluster architecture to offer automakers the ability to reduce manufacturing complexity and development time.

Integration capability for compasses, remote keyless entry, tire pressure and other driver information indicators allow automakers to reduce overall system complexity and cost.

Visteon instrument cluster designs feature advanced lighting technologies that use light emitting diode (LED) or electroluminescent lamps to improve gauge readability, provide brand differentiation to automakers and offer personalization opportunities through multi-color options.
