Acura used to the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show to present the new high-tech interior, called Acura Precision Cockpit, for their future vehicles. Honda was the very first Japanese automaker to launch a separate luxury brand (Acura) and has always valued solid-state advances for their brand. This graphic-centric dashboard will display all of the information separate gages use to display among other items.
What type of imagery? One item that stands out is the Acura Precision Cockpit’s autonomous system that gives you a graphic representation of the vehicles around you. This gives the driver a sense of comfort and relief as the rider is driven.
“The Acura Precision Cockpit unlocks the benefits of connectivity and semi-automated driving technology, while enhancing the driving experience. For example, when automated systems are engaged, the digital meter in the driver’s display utilizes a real-time 3D engine to support a dynamic layout that displays other cars and road objects recognized by the vehicle’s advanced sensors, leveraging vehicle-to-vehicle communications to visually distinguish cars operating autonomously. An advanced vision mode leverages sensors to display cars, pedestrians, cyclists and other objects – even those obscured from vision – using artificial intelligence to predict future pathways. This mode builds human confidence in the car’s automated driving systems.” – Acura Media
