Visteon Corporation has introduced the industry’s first fully digital instrument cluster, displaying holographic objectos on the all-new Peugeot 208. This comes as part of the brand’s unique 3D i-cockpit, the instrument cluster represents the first real 3D cluster in automotive production.
The company has partnered with Groupe PSA to develop a pioneering 3D Blade concept, the cluster displats advanced reflections to create impressions of 3D graphics. Built using a high-definition 10.25 inch background TFT (thin-film transistor) and a 7-inch foreground TFT projected on a semi-reflective blade. This new display creates a 3D projection of 15 mm between the front and rear images.
The new cluster also helps the company to create depth with rotating menus and shadow effects. The diplay also shows priority information such as speed and alerts. The display allows animations to pass in a dynamic manner from the front to the background in ADAS modes or as 3D animations in a number of configurable colours and skins.
The 3D cluster is the first of several variants in the Groupe PSA brand lineup that will be launched in the coming years in different sizes. It shares the same platform as the DS3 Crossback instrument cluster. The Peugeot 208 3D cluster, with its two TFTs surrouned with tell-tale satellites provide high-quality graphical content with animations and 3D content on both screens.
