Self Study Program 628 – Audi virtual cockpit
VAG SSP 628. The instrument cluster of the future. Everything is in full view of the driver: Audi virtual cockpit combines the functions of a central MMI monitor and a conventional instrument cluster in a unique TFT display. All functions and services are represented by brilliant 3D-like graphics and detailled effects. The driver can choose between two display views – classic view and progressive view.
The mode of representation depends on the view selected. Whereas in the classic view the gauges (speedometer and rev counter) dominate, in the progressive view additional functions such as Navigation, Telephone, Audi connect or Media feature prominently. The displays for ambient temperature, time and mileage (km) as well as warning and information symbols are firmly embedded at the bottom edge of the cockpit in both modes.
Fast, secure and fully digital
To enable content to be displayed quickly and in a valid format, Audi is the first car maker to use the quadcore Tegra 30 chip from the Nvidia Tegra 3 series. The graphics processor generates 60 frames per second and, thus, ensures that the needle of the speedometer and rev counter is rendered with absolute precision.
The Audi virtual cockpit is able to display a wide variety of information – from the graphics of the assistance systems and the images of the reversing camera system to dynamic vehicle animations.
The joy of use: intuitive and intelligent operation
As regards operation, “joy of use” plays an important role for Audi: the Audi virtual cockpit therefore comes onto the market with a new, intelligent MMI operating concept.
On the one hand, the driver can operate the Audi virtual cockpit using the advanced MMI; on the other, he/she can issue commands using the multifunction steering wheel.
