Visteon Awarded First SmartCore™ Cockpit Domain Controller Program in China by Dongfeng Motor Co. Ltd.

- Visteon to provide SmartCore™ for variant of 2018 domestic Chinese light-vehicle platform

SHANGHAI, April 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- China's second largest vehicle manufacturer, Dongfeng Motor Co., Ltd., has selected SmartCore™ cockpit domain controller technology from Visteon Corporation (NYSE: VC) for a future domestic Chinese light vehicle program. This will be Visteon's first SmartCore™ application in China, the company's largest market and the world's biggest automotive market.    

Visteon will supply the SmartCore™ domain controller, with an integrated center information display and thin-film transistor (TFT) instrument cluster display, for a high-line variant of a high-volume Dongfeng light vehicle scheduled for production starting in 2018.

Visteon also will supply a reconfigurable instrument cluster and infotainment system for other variants of the vehicle.

Visteon is the first supplier offering an automotive-grade, integrated domain controller approach that can independently operate the infotainment system, instrument cluster and potentially other features on one System on Chip (SoC).

This is Visteon's third new business award for SmartCore™. Visteon is scheduled to launch the first SmartCore™-based solution in 2018, for a European vehicle manufacturer. Earlier this year, Visteon announced a second SmartCore™ program, also with a European automaker, offering instrument cluster and infotainment features and expanding the platform to high-end applications with a 3-D display and augmented reality head-up display capabilities.

"This latest business win with the second largest vehicle manufacturer in China further validates SmartCore™ as a viable solution to manage the increasing cost and complexity of in-vehicle electronics," said Sachin Lawande, Visteon president and CEO. "Visteon is well-positioned to lead the consolidation of electronic control units in the cockpit space, and we are in active dialogue with several more automakers in China and elsewhere around the world to adopt this technology in their vehicles."

Visteon, a global leader in cockpit electronics, will showcase SmartCore™ at its exhibit (2A15) at the 2017 International Automobile Industry Exhibition in Shanghai, April 19-23.

The SmartCore™ architecture is fully scalable and cyber-secured through virtualization of the different cores and controlled firewalls. This enables independent functional domains with different levels of ASIL requirements – initially driver information and infotainment – while future domains can be added to operate separately and securely.

"For the automaker, SmartCore™ offers a cost-effective, space-saving cockpit electronics solution that is fully scalable and can be updated over-the-air," Lawande continued. "Drivers and passengers benefit from an enhanced instrument cluster and infotainment experience, boosted by a single seamless human machine interface, offering access to multiple levels of information."

SmartCore™ is designed to integrate infotainment, instrument clusters, information displays, head-up displays, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and connectivity – providing a foundation for the evolution to autonomous driving.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
