Unveiling AllView II, its second generation automotive cockpit technology is Luxoft Holding. AllView II is designed to showcase the look-and-feel of Luxoft’s vision of the future for in-vehicle user interaction concepts and driving experiences in the emerging era of autonomous driving, the connected car, and the automotive Internet of Things (IoT).
Based on Luxoft’s reference design platform and compliant with GENIVI Alliance requirements, AllView II encompasses a range new and evolving User Experience (UX) and human machine interface (HMI) concepts such as multi-modal input with touch, gesture, eye-tracking and natural language voice systems as well as classic controllers.
It also shows how the User Interface (UI) changes when a vehicle enters the autonomous driving mode, Car2x workload-adaptive HMI systems and seamless nomadic device integration for the connected car and IoT to meet a modern, social media-based lifestyle and dedicated automotive service offerings.
Vasily Suvorov, Luxoft’s Vice President for Technology Strategy commented: “The digital transformation of the automotive industry is continually shaping the future for in-vehicle and driving experiences. However, it is difficult to envision how to implement the required features and innovations within the upcoming automotive cockpit environment.”
Suvorov added: “Building on Luxoft’s award-winning AllView – our first generation automotive cockpit technology demonstrator – AllView II is designed to showcase our vision for how automotive cockpit environments need to evolve with the advent of new technologies and concepts. It also highlights the ways in which Luxoft’s development services can help achieve this.”
The AllView II cockpit-level HMI software system focuses specifically on the digital cluster, infotainment, driver monitoring, consumer-style driver inputs, and connected services, all contained within an integrated HMI software architecture and framework.
Within the demonstration, UX and HMI focus on such concepts as natural language understanding and text-to-speech, gesture recognition and control and driver monitoring through eye tracking. In-Vehicle Infotainment (IVI) focuses on social media access through an agile messaging co-pilot that provides the ability to safely react and respond while driving. It also delivers wireless device and cloud services integration, as well as improved navigation, telecommunication, and climate control capabilities.
“We help automotive OEMs and Tier 1 suppliers specify, design, and develop complete HMI, infotainment, connectivity, and telematics solutions while cutting costs and more importantly, time-to-market,” said Georg Doll, Luxoft’s Managing Director of Automotive. “Our AllView II concept demonstrator highlights how automotive trends and technologies can be combined into a state-of-the-art, holistic vehicle cockpit concept that integrates multiple screens. This includes car head units and mobile devices, and also enables situation-aware human machine interaction where passengers help to reduce a driver’s workload."
