CES: Audi to get digital cockpits courtesy of NVIDIA
At CES, NVIDIA unveiled that they are teaming up with Audi to develop a virtual cockpit, which will make its first appearance in the 2015 Audi TT sports coupe.
According to NVIDIA, the digital cluster will be powered by Tegra 3 and will give drivers plenty of information on the 12.3-inch HD display.
The virtual cockpit will giver drivers detailed digital gauges, 3D maps and the ability to customize the controls on the dashboard.
“The cockpit of the future is about creating an appealing and useful experience while minimizing distraction,” said Robert Kolar, leader of Instrument Cluster Systems at Audi. “NVIDIA enables us to easily achieve this goal.”
This may mark the eventual decline of the analog gauges and needles, so we’ll keep our eyes out on this one over the next few months.
