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 “infotainment,” 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 world’s most innovative products of the time.


A project made possible through collaboration
