Interactive experiences: Get an immersive view of an automotive eCockpit

In Part 3 of this series, I shared a video of “living” paintings that interact and morph as you move. It was one of many showcases featuring i.MX applications processors that we filmed in 360 degrees at NXP FTF 2016. The showcases take different interactive, digital world experiences and make them real.

Enjoy this immersive 360 degree experience with a headset/viewer or even straight from your phone or laptop by moving side-to-side and up-and-down.

Here is Part 4 of the series …

eCockpit

What it is:

This showcase demonstrates the use of multiple display systems controlled by a single applications processor in a secure and safe manner, experienced through an automotive cockpit with infotainment head unit, digital cluster, heads up display, and rear seat entertainment display.

How it works:

The i.MX applications processor runs a dashboard containing 3 LCDs for cluster, infotainment and rear seat entertainment displays operating in a simulated driving experience. The driving is show on a 65 inch curved 4K TV with enabled HUD. A failover button can be pressed to simulate a failure in the cluster which automatically recovers with an integrated advanced display control system.

Technology demonstrated:

i.MX applications processor drives multi-domain OS, hardware separation for safety and security, advanced failover display capability, advanced graphics meeting real world use case requirements.

Relevant applications:

eCockpit, multi-domain medical devices, specialty tablets, industrial automation, robotics

Stay tuned for Part 5, the last part in our series!
