Delphi Highlights Technology at 2006 Mid-America Show


March 13, 2006, TROY, Mich. - Delphi Corp. will display innovative commercial vehicle products and a suite of safety technologies at next week’s 2006 Mid-America Trucking Show at the Kentucky Fair & Exposition Center in Louisville, Ky.

“Mid-America is a great opportunity to talk with truck drivers about their future vehicle needs,” said Steve Hartwig, Delphi director of North America Commercial Vehicles. “This year Delphi is displaying technologies that help keep the driver safe along with products that make the long-haul easier.”

The products to be shown at Delphi’s Mid-America exhibit (booth #2123) include:

Windshield Cleaning System
Improving driver visibility and safety, Delphi’s windshield cleaning system helps remove snow and ice from the vehicle’s windshield and blades by heating washer fluid to 140’F. Mounted under the hood, the system heats the fluid in less than 10 seconds.

Forewarn™ Safety Technologies
Delphi technologies help keep CV drivers aware of the road by effectively wrapping the commercial vehicle in a virtual cocoon of safety.’ Delphi will demonstrate several current and future Forewarn™ brand active safety products including Pre-crash Sensing, Forward Collision Warning, Smart Cruise Control with Headway Alert, Lane Departure Warning, Active Night Vision, Radar Side Alert, Turn Assist, Back-up Aid, Drowsy Driver Alert and Driver Distraction Alert. Delphi will also demonstrate the Delphi Resettable Seat Belt Retractor.

Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC)
Delphi’s Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC) auxiliary power unit is a high-efficiency, environmentally friendly device that will convert the chemical energy in conventional vehicle fuels -- such as diesel fuel and gasoline -- directly into useful electrical power by an electrochemical process. The SOFC technology serves as an auxiliary power unit (APU) that not only eliminates the need for commercial vehicle drivers to operate their primary engines during idling periods, but also enables them to operate electrical devices without plugging into “Shore Power” rest stop sites.

Premium CD/MP3 radio
This all-in-one system,’ which includes iPOD connectivity and an integrated satellite radio receiver, offers digital-quality audio in a compact package at a competitive price. Designed specifically with the commercial vehicle driver in mind, this industry first’ product is capable of managing all of a driver’s audio needs.

Delphi’s MyFi -- the first personal, portable satellite radio application -- makes a great companion for the road because it offers the unique feature of being able to store up to five hours of prerecorded satellite radio programming. In addition to portability, the MyFi comes equipped with two kits that give drivers the flexibility to enjoy XM satellite radio both at home and in their vehicle.

Weighing just 2.3 ounces, the RoadyXT is the smallest, thinnest satellite radio available. It comes with a robust built-in wireless FM adaptor, which will wirelessly transmit to any one of 100 FM radio frequencies. The RoadyXT is vehicle ready, thus allowing for clean installation into any commercial vehicle environment.

SKYFi2 is completely portable and incorporates the most advanced user features of any satellite radio on the market. Features include: superior user interface with 20 channel presets, 30-minute pause and replay features, direct channel entry, scrolling sports scores, and the ability to preview and search XM channels by artists and song titles. This reasonably priced satellite radio product is capable of interfacing with the commercial vehicle’s current audio system and comes equipped with a built-in wireless FM adaptor.
