Jan 07, 2015, 12:30 ET from Visteon Corporation

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Visteon Corporation (NYSE: VC) is demonstrating its latest vehicle connectivity solution, providing a secure and reliable gateway to advance the connected driving experience for drivers and automakers, at the 2015 International CES® from Jan. 6-9. 

A robust vehicle communication gateway is essential to ensure reliable connectivity that can keep pace with advances in 4G LTE, Wi-Fi, and vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure (collectively V2X) developments. Visteon is exhibiting its latest solutions addressing personal and vehicle security, increased data complexity and vehicle architecture challenges in Central Plaza #20 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

"With the increased complexity of connected services and applications, today's challenge is not about providing a platform with extensive features, but creating a future-ready vehicle gateway that has the flexibility to adapt and accommodate evolving network technologies," said Christian Feltgen, vice president, Visteon technology office.

Visteon's Wireless Gateway is a 4G-compatible connectivity module that manages a complex network of cellular, Wi-Fi, Global Positioning Systems (GPS) and Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) inside and outside of the vehicle to provide seamless connectivity when mobile. The gateway incorporates a high level of security to protect multiple owners over a vehicle's lifetime and is capable of handling future data bandwidth, wireless communication and security needs.

Visteon's V2X platform provides short- to medium-range wireless communications between similarly equipped nearby vehicles that permit very low latency data transfer, which is critical in communications-based active safety applications. The platform is designed to maximize communication range and provide the greatest amount of warning or notification time to the driver.

Addressing the connected vehicle architecture, Visteon's SmartCore™ integrated solution is an industry first – integrating traditional driver information, infotainment and connectivity through one seamless human machine interaction (HMI). Multiple domains can run side-by-side on scalable hardware through different operating systems, greatly reducing complexity. The system actively prioritizes critical information for the driver on a situational basis and enhances driver information management on the road to autonomous driving.
