Automotive clusters: Where safety meets innovation | Altia HMI Development SoftwareCheck out our new article on Embedded Computing Design.

“The instrument cluster is experiencing a radical reinvention.

Screens are taking over the cluster because the cost of both the screens and the silicon to drive displays is going down. In some cases, the cluster is a combination of physical gauges and a screen; in others, all cluster information is presented on a large thin-film transistor (TFT) displays. In either implementation, the cluster is prime, driver-critical real estate, making its deployment no typical human-machine interface (HMI) challenge. All features and functionality must be easy to understand. Additionally, the entire embedded cluster system must be extremely safety-focused, performant, and fault tolerant.”
