VAN BUREN TWP. — Auto supplier Visteon Corp. (NYSE:VC) and the Finland-based user interaction design software developer Rightware say their collaboration has expanded to delivering superior UI and graphics systems for the automotive industry.
Visteon and Rightware say they will now provide vehicle manufacturers with industry-leading human machine interaction products and services using high-definition three-dimensional graphic rendering technologies, capable of delivering photorealistic
graphics in various configurations inside the vehicle.
The partners recently launched the first reconfigurable cluster program incorporating the Kanzi UI system with a North American vehicle manufacturer, and further programs are under development for key European manufacturers.
“The partnership with Rightware supports Visteon’s goal of gaining a strategic advantage in user interface and graphics technology,” said Visteon’s Christian Feltgen, vice president technology office, electronics. “Visteon is investing in solutions that enable a
seamless user experience across the cockpit ecosystem, which offers flexibility throughout the life of the product.”
Jonas Geust, CEO of Rightware, added: “Visteon and Rightware share a common vision for the future of the automotive market, HMI development and the positive impact this can have on consumers’ life onboard the vehicle. This partnership demonstrates a joint
commitment to bring an exciting in-car experience to life.”
Rightware’s Kanzi enables design and engineering teams to rapidly create and deploy advanced user interfaces for automotive applications. Kanzi also offers high-definition, real-time 2D and 3D graphics rendering which – combined with Visteon’s high-fidelity,
real-time graphical user interfaces – delivers superior graphical performance for cockpit electronics technologies.
Visteon’s LightScape, a digital and reconfigurable instrument cluster platform, and OpenAir digital in-vehicle-infotainment products were developed using Kanzi.
