Bosch supplies ‘virtual cockpit’ for latest Audi TT
In the new Audi TT, instrument, navigation and multimedia information is bundled in the driver's field of vision. The concept, called the 'Virtual Cockpit', has been supplied by Bosch.
The 12.3in high contrast TFT display – which has cropped corners – has a resolution of 1440 x 540 pixels and a colour depth of 24bit. Two basic modes are available. In the traditional mode, large, digitally produced round gauges are displayed. In the second mode, the smaller speedometer and tachometer are moved to the lower corners of the display, leaving room for other information to be shown.
The display's graphics module can also support three dimensional display of objects. For example, round gauges feature shadows that make them appear to be 'real'.
The instrument cluster is connected to car electronics via CAN and MOST buses.
