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.
