F-Pace has double vision with Visteon technology

Dual view display in reconfigurable cluster

Jaguar has introduced an advanced HMI screen that offers dual screen possibilities for occupants in its first SUV.

Developed by Tier One supplier, Visteon, the 12.3-inch fully reconfigurable infotainment cluster includes an 8-inch single view and 10-inch single and dual view display.

Visteon president and CEO Sachin Lawande, said: “The optional dual view display incorporates significant improvements in display clarity, offering the highest resolution automotive display of its kind. By splitting light into left and right components, dual view displays can show different content – such as navigation for the driver and video for the passenger – that is only visible in the user’s viewing angle.

“The dual view technology simultaneously presents two crystal-clear, high-quality images – with no interference – in one display. Split into two 1280x542 (135 dpi) views, this 10-inch display is the highest resolution dual view display on the market – offering the same high resolution as single view displays and ensuring that dual view customers no longer need to accept an inferior user experience.”

The firm has a longstanding relationship with the OEM having provided previous generations of its reconfigurable cluster for the XJ and Range Rover models, but this latest version includes improved software and graphics performance to also provide 3-D rendering capabilities.

The F-Pace is Jaguar’s first SUV and uses the same aluminium-intensive architecture as applied to the XE model.
