Η Mitsubishi Electric παρουσίασε το FLEXConnect σύστημα ψυχαγωγίας και ενημέρωσης σε μία πρωτότυπη Cadillac.

Το σύστημα που είναι βασισμένο Android, περιγράφεται ως διαισθητικό αλλά ταυτόχρονα οικονομικό. Διαθέτει μία οθόνη 12.1 ιντσών που επιτρέπει στον εκάστοτε χρήστη να αποκτήσει πρόσβαση σε διάφορες λειτουργίες ταυτόχρονα χάρη στον τρόπο που “χωρίζεται” σε 2 ή ακόμα και σε 3 κομμάτια ενώ και ο πίνακας οργάνων έχει αντικατασταθεί από μία οθόνη 12.3 ιντσών και ένα head-up display με ανάλυση 480×240. Επίσης, η Mitsubishi Electric αναφέρει ότι η πλοήγηση, τα πολυμέσα και ο κλιματισμός, μπορούν να μοιραστούν στις δύο οθόνες.

Mitsubishi Electric’s New FLEXConnect.IVI Improves Functionality, User Experience of In-Vehicle Infotainment Systems

NORTHVILLE, Mich.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mitsubishi Electric announces its new generation of FLEXConnect™ In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) systems. FLEXConnect.IVI provides a cost effective, yet intuitive, three-screen user interface. By combining swipe and touchscreen technology, the user can easily and safely interact with the heads-up display and instrument cluster on the center panel.

Built on an Android™ platform, the center touchscreen allows easy sharing of navigation, media and climate functionality with the instrument panel and heads-up display. Easy touchscreen access also lets users operate these functions with minimal distraction. Unlike most infotainment systems, FLEXConnect.IVI features a large 12.1-inch portrait mode display that allows users the flexibility to access one to three features simultaneously. With full-screen, half-screen and one-third screen displays, users can access navigation only, navigation and media player, or navigation, media player and climate controls.

While FLEXConnect.IVI provides the convenience of three displays, it is powered by a single Texas Instruments Jacinto 6 automotive processor. This provides the ability to share content from one display to the next in a sleek, time-efficient, and easy-to-understand manner. “Similar systems using multi-processor architectures would struggle to achieve a similar cohesive user experience,” said Gareth Williams, manager, Strategic Technologies, Audio, Video & Communications, Mitsubishi Electric Automotive America. “FLEXConnect.IVI builds on flexible, extensible architecture allowing users to easily share content between passenger entertainment systems and outside devices such as tablets or phones.”
