Delphi Showcases Its Broad Range of Controls & Security Products at IAA
TROY, Mich., — Delphi Corporation’s (PINKSHEETS: DPHIQ) security systems, body computer modules, electronic displays, and mechatronics products are being displayed at this year’s IAA (Internationale Automobil-Ausstellung) in Frankfurt, Germany, from September 11 through 23 in Hall 5.1, Stand No. A04.
A critical interface between the driver and the vehicle, these controls and security products offer consumers information, convenience and protection.
Delphi’s Controls & Security product business unit provides OEMs with product differentiation that enhances cockpit aesthetics and provides added conveniences, vital information and added security that can influence consumers’ buying habits.
“Delphi has nearly 90 years of experience in designing, engineering and integrating information displays into vehicles,” said Jugal Vijayvargiya, lead executive for Delphi’s Controls & Security product business unit. “Over the decades we have taken instrumentation from monochromic, analog, mechanical devices to full-color, electronic reconfigurable displays and cockpits that the driver can adjust to his/her individual driver preferences. Our products actually touch and connect the driver to the vehicle. We are extremely proud that we have been instrumental in making driving more informative, convenient, secure and more enjoyable for millions of motorists through the years.”
Delphi will showcase many products that address the needs of the OEMs and the consumer that include:
Column Integrated Modules
Delphi’s controls and security portfolio includes column integrated systems that start from simple stalk switch applications and go to the sophisticated designs that include electronic interface. Delphi’s systems already include electronic gateways with vehicle multiplex network, gear shift control and steering angle sensors. Delphi is preparing the next generation of column integrated modules to be X-by-wire-ready and include applications offering the integration of steering angle sensors that could possibly interface with flex-ray bus.
Vehicle Access Systems
Delphi provides vehicle access systems that provide added convenience and improve vehicle protection. These solutions start from simple key fob systems and go to full keyless entry applications where Delphi provides OEMs with complete system support to achieve final vehicle level performance and robustness.
Delphi’s latest offering is a bi-directional key fob that provides car-to-user and user-to-car communication to inform the user on the status of various functions in the car. Deep expertise in vehicle wireless communication enables Delphi to propose optimum range performance to the OEM. Delphi’s bi-directional key fob system also provides long range possibilities on the car to user communication and a controlled range on the user-to-car communication.
Instrument clusters provide key, critical information to the driver in a user-friendly manner. Delphi offers a complete range of these products with innovative solutions and many styling cues. Delphi’s instrumentation can provide color reconfigurable lighting that offers the driver the ability to personalize the car’s interior environment.
Integrated Center Panel
First introduced on the Jaguar XK, Delphi’s one-piece Integrated Center Panel helps OEMs lower cost and simplify designs. This Delphi innovation replaces separate HVAC, radio, entertainment, communications, accessory and other functional switches with a single mechatronic module. The one-piece design offers significant cost savings when compared with the cost of individually installed components. It reduces wiring harness cost and mass, while providing a uniform look in the interior.
“Finding ways to help our customers has become a part of our business mantra,” said Vijayvargiya. “Our Integrated Center Panel is a great example of how we are focusing on innovation and up-integration to help our customers be more competitive.”
Delphi’s Integrated Center Panel is available with touch screen and traditional switching interfaces. Delphi can integrate switch functions for a centrally mounted touch screen that allows for intuitive selection of climate, audio, navigation, telephone and vehicle personalization settings.
Delphi’s roof modules are integrated seamlessly into the vehicle and offer more convenience to consumers. The products integrate functionality such as switches, interior lighting, intrusion detection and cameras in the roof environment.
The Delphi seat module combines the latest electronic control technology to provide added convenience to the driver when adjusting seats to add to ergonomic comfort in the cockpit.
Delphi’s complete product portfolio includes a wide range of products from standalone switching configurations to solutions integrating full electronic control and multiplex interface. With considerable knowledge in vehicle architecture, Delphi provides the expertise to help optimize configuration of seat control switches to offer excellent performance at a low cost, including consideration of the percentage of vehicles that will use a particular seating arrangement.
Theft Protection Systems
The Delphi theft protection product family includes immobilizer solutions, intrusion detection, and inclination sensing and alert siren with applications that fully comply with existing and future planned regulations to help provide drivers peace of mind. Delphi offers OEM solutions which are integrated into the vehicle’s electrical architecture taking into consideration performance, cost and space.
Delphi is a world leader in body computer technology, leveraging its expertise in vehicle architecture and managing information and data flow throughout the vehicle.
Engineered for flexibility, Delphi’s body computers integrate functionality such as tire pressure monitoring, rear camera monitoring and vehicle access systems. Engineers at Delphi help define the most suitable electronic architecture to match the vehicle requirements and optimize system cost. The company also provides vehicle system integration service with the right level of support during vehicle development and validation to help ensure that all electronic modules interface correctly under all circumstances.
Delphi’s solutions in body computers are compliant with the latest standards of vehicle software development (AutoSAR). The company uses internally developed tools which provide more robustness in the design and facilitate the re-use of building blocks by creating standard sub-functions, a key factor in reducing development cycle time and cost.
To help protect the vehicle from battery drain, the Delphi body computer family includes systems that improve the vehicle electrical energy consumption. These products consist of reversible battery disconnects that allow for better management of battery current consumption while the vehicle is not in use.
