Gentex shows off Connected Car and Digital Vision Systems at CES 2019

News

At CES 2019, Gentex Corporation demonstrated the latest connected car features and digital vision technologies ready for automaker implementation.

Gentex supplies nearly every major automaker with connected-car technologies and advanced electronic features that optimise driver vision and enhance driving safety.

“As our capabilities continue to expand, our focus is to develop scalable technology paths through automotive features that are ready for immediate automaker implementation, yet are based on technology platforms that can grow, advance and adapt, especially as new mobility models and the autonomous age emerge,” said Gentex President & CEO Steve Downing.

Gentex is a long-time supplier of features for the connected car. One example is HomeLink, the industry's most widely used and trusted car-to-home automation system. More than 80 million HomeLink-equipped vehicles are on the road today around the world.

HomeLink consists of vehicle-integrated programmable buttons that can operate virtually any type of home automation device. It utilises two transmission modes: radio frequency (RF) to activate entry-critical appliances such as garage doors and security gates, and cloud-based wireless transmission to operate home lighting, thermostats, smart outlets, security systems, and other IOT devices.

At CES, Gentex demonstrated HomeLink Connect, its new home automation app that pairs with the vehicle and allows drivers to operate home automation devices from the vehicle's touch screen or Bluetooth-enabled rearview mirror.

“HomeLink's dual transmission makes it the industry standard for comprehensive and reliable vehicle-to-home automation,” said Downing. “Plus, we're continually working to ensure that HomeLink is compatible with the latest smart-home devices, which makes it a robust, worry-free connectivity solution for automakers.”

At CES, Gentex also demonstrated Integrated Toll Module (ITM), a nationwide toll collection technology for factory integration into new vehicles. The system uses a mirror-integrated multi-protocol toll tag that provides motorists with access to toll roads throughout the US. It allows automakers to offer yet another connected-car feature to their customers and benefit from an ideal, high-performance transponder location. Motorists benefit by convenient, unfettered access to the country's toll roads while eliminating toll-tag windscreen clutter and the need to manage multiple toll accounts.

To enhance the security of connected car features, Gentex demoed an in-vehicle biometrics system that authenticates the driver with an iris scan to deliver customised security, comfort and convenience features. The system consists of a mirror-integrated display, near-infrared emitters, an iris-scanning camera, and system-level intelligence.

Upon entering the vehicle, a glance to the mirror by an authorised user would allow the vehicle to operate, personalise the cabin (adjust seat position, HVAC controls, music favorites, etc.) and sanction safe, secure access to a host of cloud-based, connected-vehicle services, like home automation control, tolling, and in-vehicle payments.

Gentex's CES booth also showcased the company's next-generation Full Display Mirror (FDM), an intelligent rear-vision system that uses a custom camera and mirror-integrated video display to optimise a vehicle's rearward view. The system captures video from a rearward-facing camera and streams it to a unique mirror-integrated LCD that provides the driver with an unobstructed, panoramic view behind the vehicle.

The mirror offers bi-modal functionality. In mirror mode, the product functions as a standard rearview mirror, but with the flip of a lever, the mirror enters display mode, and a clear, bright, LCD display appears through the mirror's reflective surface, providing a wide, unobstructed rearward view.

The Gentex FDM is also central to the Company's camera monitoring system (CMS), which uses three cameras to provide comprehensive views of the sides and rear of the vehicle. The side-view cameras are discretely housed in reduced-sized, exterior mirrors. Their video feeds are combined with that of a roof-mounted camera and stitched together into multiple composite views that are streamed to the driver in the Full Display Mirror.
