Delphi at 2013 International CES Features Technologies to Keep Drivers Informed, Connected and Wirelessly Charged Without Compromising Safety

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Delphi Automotive (NYSE: DLPH) today announced a range of powerful connectivity, infotainment, safety and wireless-device charging technologies, which it will showcase at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this week in the Las Vegas Convention Center North Hall, Booth #730. These Delphi technologies are designed to help keep the driver's focus on driving while connecting in new ways for communication and fun.

Delphi enables this driving experience through several advancements:

  • Smart, active safety that places all critical information in the driver's forward view through a high-mount display, controlled at the steering wheel or by voice
  • Maximizing and extensively integrating in-vehicle computing power for easy and flawless entertainment and navigation capabilities through a Connected Navigation Radio
  • Allowing a driver to track, locate, access, secure and diagnose their vehicle anywhere at any time with a smart device or browser
  • Wireless, automatic charging for smartphones, tablets and portable navigation devices that fully charge each of these with the flexibility of placement within the vehicle

These technologies reflect Delphi's passion about driver safety while enhancing the consumer experience, as well as its dedication to enabling the connected digital lifestyle in and out of the vehicle. In these new approaches, Delphi's expertise in integration and connectivity allows drivers and passengers to seamlessly share content with one another inside the vehicle.

"Delphi believes driver safety and connectivity are achieved through eyes on the road, hands on the wheel and mind on the mission," said Jeffrey J. Owens, Delphi chief technology officer. "By enabling drivers to keep their hands on the wheel while viewing the information they need, commanding entertainment and navigation systems, and supporting their handheld devices, we are helping to furnish new ways to make the driving experience safe and fun for everyone in the car."

Delphi's latest contributions to automotive safety, connectivity and power are embodied in the technologies demonstrated at CES, including MyFi® Connecting with Safety, MyFi® Maximum Computing Power, Delphi's Connected Car, the magnetic-resonance-based wireless charging system and a portfolio of products that offer fast and comprehensive connectivity.

MyFi® Connecting with Safety

Reflecting Delphi's continuous commitment to mitigating distractions by enabling drivers to keep their eyes on the road, Delphi's MyFi® Active Safety human-machine interface (HMI) controls place all important information in the driver's field of view, with the ability to control all major functions by the touch of a button on the steering wheel or by voice recognition. Helping the driver keep "eyes forward" is a high-mount, transparent display with reconfigurable clusters that keeps critical data in the driver's line of view at all times. Delphi's driver state sensor and workload manager deliver information in a safe manner, while actively conditioning the driver to focus and passively minimizing distraction. The technology proactively adjusts features based on real-time conditions. For example, MyFi® monitors traffic conditions and the driver's incoming text messages; but if traffic is heavy and the driver needs to focus, Active Safety will not read the messages aloud.

MyFi® Maximum Computing Power

Delphi has developed a Connected Navigation Radio, a highly integrated infotainment platform designed to offer increased connectivity and navigation features to the consumer. The Delphi Connected Navigation Radio is an embedded system that is rich in features, offering vehicle manufacturers the opportunity to differentiate their cars and trucks with the flexibility of individualized entertainment, information and communication. The radio's features include:

  • The ability to sync with nomadic devices of drivers and passengers
  • Full-color map navigation
  • Flexible entertainment options, such as AM/FM, digital and high-definition radio

Delphi's media module consumer ports now have AUX, USB, SD and HDMI connectivity, with custom solutions to fit any interior style. In the future, Delphi's media module could include Bluetooth capabilities that can support in-vehicle communications. The Connected Navigation Radio is the latest example of how Delphi harnesses the power of dozens of in-vehicle computers to make simple, reliable systems.

Connected Car

Delphi announced at CES 2013 the release of its innovative cloud-based automotive connectivity system. Delphi developed a device that provides a groundbreaking car-to-cloud/cloud-to-car connectivity service, allowing a driver to track, locate, access, secure and monitor his or her family's vehicles anywhere at any time with a smartphone or browser. The first-in-its-class device works in nearly every vehicle sold in the U.S. from 1996 onward.

The Delphi car connectivity system enables drivers to carry out any of the following features remotely:

  • Monitor overall vehicle status
  • Highlight vehicle fault codes
  • Locate and access a family's cars anywhere and anytime
  • Receive alerts for driving and vehicle performance
  • Set up geo-fences, and receive alerts for entry and exit
  • Live tracking
  • Trip logs
  • Fast, cloud-connected response to key fob commands
  • Direct Smartphone connect to vehicle via Bluetooth

Wireless Charging for Consumer Devices

Traveling with chargers, cords and adapters? Delphi is developing technology to eliminate clutter and take the consumer into a truly wireless experience. Delphi's Wireless Charging for consumer devices will automatically transfer power to mobile electronic devices without any need for cords, plugs or adapters, providing a safe and convenient way to charge devices. Wireless-charging technology transfers electric power over short distances without physical contact. Delphi's Wireless Charging requires no cables or pads and charges multiple devices at a rate comparable to that of most residential plug-in chargers. The hands-free system will activate the moment a device is within range and is engineered to provide a safe, robust and fast charge.

Data Connectivity Kiosk

To meet the increasing consumer demand for more entertainment and data exchange capability in cars and trucks, Delphi has developed an expanding portfolio of cables, connectors and consumer ports that allow communication of audio, video and navigation data within the vehicle.

Cloud Expo Breaking News
More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
Web conferencing in a public cloud has the same risks as any other cloud service. If you have ever had concerns over the types of data being shared in your employees’ web conferences, such as IP, financials or customer data, then it’s time to look at web conferencing in a private cloud. In her session at 14th Cloud Expo, Courtney Behrens, Senior Marketing Manager at Brother International, will discuss how issues that had previously been out of your control, like performance, advanced administration and compliance, can now be put back behind your firewall.
Next-Gen Cloud. Whatever you call it, there’s a higher calling for cloud computing that requires providers to change their spots and move from a commodity mindset to a premium one. Businesses can no longer maintain the status quo that today’s service providers offer. Yes, the continuity, speed, mobility, data access and connectivity are staples of the cloud and always will be. But cloud providers that plan to not only exist tomorrow – but to lead – know that security must be the top priority for the cloud and are delivering it now. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Kurt Hagerman, Chief Information Security Officer at FireHost, will detail why and how you can have both infrastructure performance and enterprise-grade security – and what tomorrow's cloud provider will look like.
The social media expansion has shown just how people are eager to share their experiences with the rest of the world. Cloud technology is the perfect platform to satisfy this need given its great flexibility and readiness. At Cynny, we aim to revolutionize how people share and organize their digital life through a brand new cloud service, starting from infrastructure to the users’ interface. A revolution that began from inventing and designing our very own infrastructure: we have created the first server network powered solely by ARM CPU. The microservers have “organism-like” features, differentiating them from any of the current technologies. Benefits include low consumption of energy, making Cynny the ecologically friendly alternative for storage as well as cheaper infrastructure, lower running costs, etc.
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.
