Visteon Corporation introduced a product that it says will improve a driver’s experience. The company’s image processing algorithm preserves and improves the cockpit display image quality across the full range of ambient light conditions. The company says its TrueColor Image Enhancement enables automotive displays to achieve the image quality expectations of the tech-savvy consumer.
Harsh sunlight conditions in an automotive environment can make it difficult for drivers and passengers to see what is being displayed in the cockpit. Visteon says its TrueColor effectively overcomes brightness and glare to maintain the legibility of safety information. TrueColor Image Enhancement is a self-contained, hardware/software-based solution for vehicle displays.
The ISO15008 standard sets minimum legibility requirements for characters, fonts and symbols shown on vehicle displays. Screen legibility often deteriorates in bright ambient sunlight conditions with harsh reflections. TrueColor promotes compliance to this standard, according to Visteon. This improves the user experience and improves the visibility of contents.
Visteon’s TrueColor is a dynamic algorithm solution that improves the legibility of the entire display, a proprietary integration of hardware and software components.
“Keeping the cockpit display content legible in bright sunlight conditions is a particular challenge,” said Jim Carpenter, senior director of displays engineering. “Drivers increasingly expect the consistent high image-quality of their mobile phones and digital devices. Our TrueColor solution maintains display readability in bright sunlight conditions.”
