Human Machine Interface
Deep Orange 2
Introducing Deep Orange 2
The second-generation Deep Orange prototype vehicle was designed and engineered by students at the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) in partnership with the School of computing. Students and faculty unveiled a breakthrough Human Machine Interface (HMI) and center stack design demonstrating personalized driver interaction through a configurable dashboard. The new technology means the sleek dashboard can be personalized to interact between the driver and vehicle through virtualized onboard computers.
The Human Machine Interface can be configured for â€œinfotainment,â€ climate control and personalized information for specific drivers.
In 2012, the concept was showcased at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV surrounded by some of the worldâ€™s most innovative products of the time.
Open Source In-Vehicle Infotainment System
Incorporating a pre-engineered GENIVI-compliant OS distribution running on the Intel Atom E6xx series processor and reference board, students were able to focus on the user interaction elements of a next-generation infotainment design while reusing all of the underlying Linux software that was created by others. This approach, when applied to commercial products, reduces time to market, reduces costs and enables designers to more quickly add innovation and features. Intel Corp. provided the hardware for this infotainment platform.
Electronic Vehicle Access Key: cKey App
An Android-based application was developed to replicate and enhance the functionalities of a physical car key. The cellular telephone-integrated digital key not only unlocks the car door, but also is the key to a cloud server, where it can access personal profiles with vehicle cockpit themes, favorite radio stations, climate control and other settings. Dell Services Engineering Solutions provided the know-how for realizing the cKey App and communication protocol with the vehicle and cloud server.
Customization Portal and Cloud Storage Concept
Allows individual vehicle users to personalize the human-machine interface at the dealership â€” as an initial configuration â€” or at home. Drivers can store personal profiles and preferences on a cloud server, and configure the vehicleâ€™s user interface and preferences anywhere, any time using a web-based portal.
Deep Orange 2: From Concept to Creation
Deep Orange is a vehicle prototype program that immerses graduate automotive engineering students into the world of an OEM. The Deep Orange 2 project was unveiled at Michelin on Main, making a big splash in the Upstate of South Carolina.
