This 2014 edition of the Automotive Cockpits and Dashboards Report is the latest in the series of reports by Supplier Business looking at trends and developments in the vehicle cockpit space. Over time we have seen many changes in terms of the design and structure of the main modules and components that go to make up the dashboard and cockpit element of the vehicle’s interior. In particular the increasing level of in-vehicle connectivity has caused interior designers to rethink the layout and content of the dashboard and centre console. In this report the main trends and developments are highlighted, with particular reference to examples of the way in which the industry has responded to the challenge.
The strongest influence on the vehicle’s cockpit and dashboard continues to be the requirement for in-vehicle connectivity. Consumer demand for seamless connectivity between home, office and vehicle dominates the cockpit’s interior design and structure. The technology required to provide the level of connectivity demanded by users is increasingly complex and, by necessity, has to embrace advanced driver active safety systems (ADAS) and the anticipated development of semi-autonomous and ultimately, fully autonomous vehicles. A major concern in this regard is cognitive overload and how to ensure that this is managed in such as way as to minimise driver distraction. It is in this area that significant research has been undertaken into user-friendly Human Machine Interface (HMI) and the results are being seen in the way in which HMI is incorporated in the cockpit area.
This report also includes an extract from the SupplierBusiness WhoSuppliesWhom database. This highlights some of the current and recently awarded contracts for the main components in the cockpit area together with information on new suppliers of both modules and components.
The keynote interview for this report is with Dr Hassan Moussa, Product Line Engineering Manager, Clusters and Displays Applications – Europe.
