Delphi presents MyFi Connecting with Safety concept car at IAA Frankfurt show
10 September 2013
Delphi Automotive PLC presented its MyFi Connecting with Safety concept car at the IAA Frankfurt show. Delphi’s MyFi system connects the world of infotainment with the world of active safety. By locating important information in the driver’s forward view, MyFi uses voice recognition, text-to-speech, large touch screens, reconfigurable displays and workload management technologies to tailor information to the driver depending on the driving environment.
When linked with data from vehicle’s safety sensors, MyFi can provide alerts to redirect the driver’s attention to the road when unsafe conditions are detected, such as heavy construction, extreme weather or traffic. Studies show that an extra half-second of warning can reduce automobile crashes by 60%.
Delphi’s HMI design puts all key vehicle information directly in the driver’s line of sight. A high mount transparent display makes it easy to see vehicle information and critical alerts without compromising the driver’s attention to the road. A reconfigurable cluster allows for personalization, creating a unique look and theme based upon each driver’s individual taste.
Features of the concept car include:
Integrated RaCam unit (radar and camera). Through the fusion of radar and camera sensing in a single box solution, information is collected and used to sense collision risk due to high traffic, construction, or other difficult driving scenarios. This data also feeds into the work load management software to dynamically adjust the HMI to ensure that the driver remains focused on the driving conditions.
Natural voice recognition with Cloud connectivity. Using natural voice recognition with cloud connectivity allows the driver to speak naturally rather than remember specific commands for vehicle functions. By connecting to the cloud, Delphi provides a personalized search based on individual preferences established by the driver along with the driver’s search history. To improve the overall accuracy of understanding commands, the next generation of microphone acoustics is integrated supporting a full range of operation; even in noisy environments.
Work load manager and driver state sensor. Delphi’s proprietary workload manager software, along with the driver state sensor, provides the driver realtime feedback and intelligently minimizes activities when the driver is too distracted. Delphi’s latest generation software has the capability to seamlessly function even when the driver is wearing sunglasses.
In-vehicle Wireless Network. This creates a vehicle-specific network to allow all the passengers to share data and content throughout the vehicle. With any WiFi-enabled smart device, passengers can control the radio functions from anywhere in the vehicle or even input navigation destinations without ever having to disturb the driver. The system also allows for video content to be displayed wirelessly on the rear video screens. Coupled with Delphi’s natural voice recognition system, the driver can even play different movies on each of the rear screens through a voice command.
