After consultation with OEMs as well as extensive primary user research, Faurecia has concluded that there are 3 key technology areas required to deliver the Cockpit of the Future.

Faurecia uses CloudMade’s Predictive Learning System to enable adaptive interfaces, powered by machine learnt inferences.  Some examples include:

  1. Pre-conditioning the cabin to the occupants’ desired temperature based on their learnt departure time.
  2. Learning the occupants’ cabin settings such as seating position, mirror positions and steering position and then predictively applying these settings.
  3. Anticipating a driver’s safety level and adjusting interactions such as cockpit displays and autonomous hand overs accordingly.
  4. Anticipating a driver’s comfort level and adjusting seating settings like massages, lumbar supports and air bladders.

This short video gives an overview of CloudMade’s vision of the Intelligent Vehicle of the future.
