Samsung Electronics introduced its latest offering, the improved ‘Digital Cockpit (Digitalized Car Control Space) 2021’, which first came to light at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018. The Samsung Electronics Digital Cockpit has continued to evolve by installing innovations yearly since 2018.
Samsung aims to enhance people’s lives by integrating Samsung Electronics’ ICT (information and communication technology) with Harman’s electric field technology. The Digital Cockpit offers a safe environment where people could communicate and enjoy pleasant experiences daily in a car.
The Digital Cockpit 2021 boasts a 49-inch QLED display and sound system that allows users to enjoy immersive content. Users could enjoy a 5G network’s benefits through entertainment content while communicating with others without interruption outside.
Samsung included interiors that enable flexible work and customized hardware for various situations to maximize the user’s productivity. The Digital Cockpit 2021 offers video conferencing for remote work and video production activities such as shooting and editing.
The “future car” provides the Samsung Health Service currently used in smartphones and TVs, which offers check-ups and assessments of a user’s well-being. The health service could adjust settings to suit an individual’s needs and alleviate the user’s stress level.
The control display located on the rear seat’s center armrest allows control of environments through simple touch commands. Additionally, the controlled display automatically deactivates when not in use and enhances the car’s interior design and modernity.
The digital cockpit 2021 extends the living space from the home to the car and allows users to enjoy entertainment content anytime.
The digital cockpit also offers a Panoramic front Display exposed halfway to prevent obstruction to the driver’s view while driving—the 49-inch widescreen switches to full screen when the vehicle is parked or not moving.
The steering wheel’s control panel includes an 8.8-inch LCD touch display doubles as a controller for playing entertainment content. Users could adjust the headrest speaker’s position and worn as a headset to control the car’s music volume.
Furthermore, a rear out-cabin screen enables users to enjoy content and comes in handy in different outdoor activities such as camping. Video shooting and editing become possible by using the In-cabin camera located at the top of each seat.
Users could immediately upload the video output or shared it with the rear seat display.
The car offers a 360 Vision Monitoring System with four cameras and deep learning technology to recognize potential dangers while driving. A floating window located in the windshield center shows driving information like traffic signals, signs, and weather.
Under unstable road conditions, the vehicle warns pedestrians and other drivers through an audiovisual display in front of the vehicle. The vehicle also includes a ‘directional speaker’ to help in communication with pedestrians. The speaker reduces noise pollution by delivering notifications with a soft sound and directed only to specific pedestrians.
Samsung Electronics aims to continually develop innovations for the digital cockpit to satisfy a rapidly changing environment.
