Visteon Corporation, a supplier in growing cockpit domain controller segment, has launched  SmartCore cockpit domain controller powering the infotainment system and digital and hybrid instrument cluster variants on the recently launched TATA Harrier sport utility vehicle (SUV).

Based on TATA’s IMPACT 2.0 design philosophy, the automaker’s new flagship SUV promises a new user experience based on an intelligently designed interior and future-ready connectivity and infotainment, incorporating high-resolution displays, voice recognition and driver alerts.

Visteon’s SmartCore drives the infotainment and instrument cluster domains on one system-on-chip (SoC), offering large thin-film transistor (TFT) displays for enhanced user experience with seamless human-machine interaction (HMI) – a unique feature of Visteon’s first-to-market domain controller.

The SmartCore solution incorporates the silver box, a tablet-style infotainment display with button panel and a reconfigurable instrument cluster on premium models. The infotainment system variants offer display configurations ranging from 7-inch to 8.8-inch TFTs, while the instrument cluster options include a 4-inch LCD and a 7-inch color TFT – the first in the India market – and an intuitive user interface.
The main infotainment features include easy device convergence through Android Auto and CarPlay, voice recognition, Bluetooth and text-to-speech (TTS). The system also supports smartphone-based navigation and connected apps.
