Samsung showed 5G-console for cars of the futureJanuary 9, 2020
At CES 2020, Samsung demonstrated its own vision of what the car console of cars of the future might look like. Digital Cockpit 2020 is equipped with a powerful specialized Samsung Exynos Auto V9 processor and runs on Android 10. The peculiarity of the device is that it is synchronized immediately with eight cameras and displays in the car.
To interact with the outside world, Digital Cockpit 2020 captures readings from eight cameras and eight displays. At the same time, the use of 5G networks is actively involved, which can provide a sufficient data transfer rate. All information, according to the idea of Samsung, should be sent from the car to a special hub located in the office or home of the owner.
Of course, the company did not forget about the integration of its own voice assistant Bixby. In addition to the main large widescreen display, the Digital Cockpit 2020 is complemented by a touchscreen display in the gearbox selector and passenger seats. Another 53.7-inch screen is installed in the back of the body, thanks to which the owner of the concept car can warn the following drivers from behind by sending a message.
In the conceptual system, displays are ubiquitous: from the dashboard to the temperature control knobs and the air conditioning system. Each chair is equipped with acoustic speakers, and Samsung has worked with industry gurus HARMAN on the multimedia capabilities of the Digital Cockpit 2020 ecosystem.
The 5G Telematics Control Unit (TCU) technology was also introduced, which allows the driver to receive the necessary information about the traffic situation in real time, view high-resolution HD-cards and see the risk of an unsafe situation on the road, as well as monitor “dead” zones. Finally, Samsung demonstrated a new type of antenna, which allows to make interaction with the telematic control unit more efficient and abandon the traditional “shark fin”, which has become an integral element of the exterior of most modern cars.
