Audi during 2015 CES

Posted on 07. Jan, 2015 by in Audi Canada

Even today, many business perspective their automobile as some-more than usually a automobile – it is a “mobile device”. Audi drives brazen networking of a models both inside and outward a car. At CES, Audi presents a far-reaching operation of innovations in a record fields of controls and displays, infotainment, connectivity and lighting technology, in motorist assistance systems and in piloted driving.

Audi’s new hardware and module solutions are stretchable and intelligent, and they yield total handling comfort. Take a new Audi TT* and a new Audi Q7*: here, all a motorist needs to do is to emanate a voice authority “take me to a nearest Italian restaurant” and a navigation element immediately will arrangement a analogous route. This large SUV’s new all‑in‑touch MMI will let a motorist corkscrew and wizz as on a smartphone. Every opening will trigger a haptic feedback.

Audi connect, a abounding portfolio of networked applications, also offers new solutions. In a new Audi Q7, a motorist can use a smartphone to couple adult with a module sourroundings of Apple Car Play and Android Auto. The element also provides a motorist with opening to Napster’s and Aupeo!’s song worlds and to online updates of maritime maps. A virtual cockpit shows all of a car’s displays in a Audi TT (standard) and a Audi Q7 (optional). This fascinating digital instrument multiple boasts elaborate 3D graphics and animations as good as good operation for customization.

Driver assistance systems is another area where Audi opens a new section in a new Audi Q7. Solutions such as a Predictive Efficiency Assistant and adaptive tour control including overload partner indicate a proceed towards arriving piloted pushing technology. The code recently showed how many romantic interest this can have when a driverless Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept raced around Hockenheim speedway, a Grand Prix circuit in Germany, during a tip speed of 240 km/h (149.1 mph) creation it a sportiest piloted automobile in a world.

To symbol 2015 CES, an Audi A7 piloted driving concept will engine from Stanford in Silicon Valley to Las Vegas. The car’s zFAS motorist assistance controller will upload information collected during a tour to a Cloud where it will be processed, afterwards transmitted behind to a car, enabling a automobile to henceforth enhance a information repository and creation it an intelligent and adaptive vehicle.

Four fantastic cars turn off Audi’s participation in Las Vegas. They are a customary TT Roadster, RS 7 Sportback* and R8 LMX as good as a Audi prologue piloted driving showcar, that was purpose-built for CES.


Audi during 2015 CES
“Next chapter” is a sign for Audi’s participation during a Consumer Electronics Show (CES), that will be hold in Las Vegas, Nevada, from January 6th by 9th, 2015. At this many critical wiring satisfactory in a world, Audi, a code with a four rings, will benefaction a accessible record and a projects for tomorrow.

Audi’s CES participation is centered on a car’s communication with a surroundings. Focus topics embody piloted driving, new Audi bond solutions, new infotainment modules, control and arrangement concepts and new developments in lighting technology. Among a highlights of Audi’s CES participation are a hybrid-powered Audi voluntary piloted pushing showcar and a interior indication of a new Audi Q7, itself debuting during a Detroit automobile uncover

“Digitalization and networking in all areas are a megatrends of a present,” says Prof. Dr. Ulrich Hackenberg, house member for technical growth during AUDI AG. “The automobile is apropos a mobile device on 4 wheels. Connectivity is a pivotal to a destiny and a essential area of a growth work. We have invariably pioneered a use of electronic technologies for years now.”

Extremely convenient: motorist assistance element and piloted driving
Driver assistance systems make pushing some-more pleasant, safer and some-more efficient. They are accessible in roughly all of Audi’s indication lines. Debuting in a Audi Q7, to be launched in 2015, are groundbreaking solutions such as a Predictive Efficiency Assistant, a Trailer Assistant and adaptive tour control including a overload assistant.

For a company’s subsequent large step, Audi will deliver a new technologies for piloted pushing before a finish of this decade. These can take over pushing in certain situations if a motorist wishes them to do so. Audi has been behaving pioneering work in this area for years and shown how stirring piloted pushing can be. In October 2014, a Audi RS 7 piloted driving concept lapped a Grand Prix circuit during Hockenheim during speeds adult to 240 km/h (149.1 mph) with no motorist on board, creation it a sportiest piloted pushing automobile in a world.

Audi has presented a solutions for piloted pushing and pushing in undiluted areas during CES in prior years. Now, in time for 2015 CES, a code sets another miracle with a Audi A7 piloted driving concept featuring a far-reaching operation of customary and close-to-standard sensors, that will expostulate from Stanford in Silicon Valley around Bakersfield to Las Vegas.

Contributing to Audi’s corner in piloted pushing is a executive motorist assistance controller (zFAS), that processes information collected by a sensors to emanate a minute sense of a car’s surroundings. Audi connect’s superfast online tie will track this information to a Cloud‑based IT backend. There, a information will be processed regulating appurtenance training algorithms and synthetic comprehension before it is transmitted behind to a car. The automobile so invariably expands a comprehension as it drives, invariably improving a opening in formidable situations. At a same time, other users of this record can also advantage from this accumulation of information.

Farsighted: Audi’s lighting innovations
Audi has been a personality in automobile lighting record for years. Groundbreaking innovations accessible in several stream indication lines embody pattern LED headlights for intelligent and stretchable enlightenment of a highway aspect as good as energetic branch signals.

Another universe initial is a laser highbeam accessible in Audi’s high-end R8 LMX book model. Its operation is some-more than 500 feet. At CES, Audi will deliver Audi Matrix laser record as a subsequent step, a laser light providing high-resolution and finely tuned enlightenment of a alley ahead. Another creation is construction area lighting. This projects dual considerably splendid light strips onto a road, so visualizing a car’s width.

Attractive and intuitive: controls and displays in a TT and a Q7
Clear and discerning operation has always been a strength of Audi. At CES, a code will uncover a many new advances in control and arrangement record as accessible in a new Audi TT and a arriving Audi Q7.

One prominence is a Audi practical cockpit. This fully‑digital total instrument provides a motorist with minutely rendered, shining 3D graphics of all information and offers opposite arrangement modes to select from on a 12.3‑inch TFT monitor. Audi virtual cockpit is powered by a T 30 graphics processor done by Audi’s team-work partner NVDIA.

Audi will also benefaction innovations in control record The TT and a new Q7 will underline MMI terminals with an all-new interface logic. This will obey a judgment of complicated smartphones, where prosaic hierarchies reinstate sprawling menu trees.

Four elements: a normal push-turn knob, a multifunction steering wheel, healthy voice operation easy bland speech, and a touchpad usurpation signs and multi-finger gestures, are accessible to control a system’s countless functions, that embody telephone, radio, media and navigation. In a Audi TT, a MMI all‑in‑touch’s interface is on a knob, while in a Audi Q7, it is a apart surface. The element provides haptic feedback after any entry.

All-round networking: Audi connect
The tenure Audi connect covers all applications and developments networking a automobile with a owner, a Internet, open infrastructure and other automobiles. This is another margin of record where Audi invariably expands a lead.

A executive hardware element, a Audi bond module, connects a automobile with a internet around LTE, a fastest accessible delivery standard. The car’s passengers can bond their mobile inclination to a WLAN hotspot, that also provides a motorist with customized online in-car services from a Audi bond portfolio. One of a innovations in this area is Online Media Streaming, that offers opening to Napster and Aupeo! song services, and online updating of a maritime map.

Additional services will be accessible in a new Audi Q7, among them a Audi smartphone interface. Depending on either a patron connects an iOS or an Android device, a interface will call adult a Apple Car Play or Android Auto tallness onto a car’s MMI monitor. At a core of a charity is an huge preference of song titles. In addition, both platforms yield navigation and messaging functions and appointment reminders.

Future car‑to‑X technologies are another pivotal component of Audi connect. These will capacitate Audi models to correlate with trade lights in a city to navigate trade faster and some-more efficiently. Another resolution will assent cashless remuneration in a parking garage or during a kerbside meter, a third one will code speed boundary and mark dangers and also send a analogous information to other cars.

Another creation presented by Audi during CES is a Audi mobile key. Here, a smartphone or a smartwatch provides opening to a vehicle, creation them rarely stretchable complements to existent keys. The mobile pivotal uses Near Field Communication (NFC), that is accessible even when a mobile device’s battery is empty.

Powered by NVIDIA: infotainment
At CES, Audi will be arrangement appealing innovations in infotainment. One of these can be seen in a Audi phone box in a new Q7, that permits easy pairing of a smartphone. It can now inductively assign concordant phones underneath a Qi standard.

Another initial is 3D sound. In a new Audi Q7, a reward sound systems from Bose and Bang  Olufsen confederate additional speakers that open adult tallness as a spatial dimension. A worldly algorithm extracts information for a third dimension from required stereo or 5.1 recordings and processes it for facsimile around a orator array.

Audi to set new standards in infotainment with a Modular Infotainment Matrix and a record network. The brand’s insubordinate proceed involving a modularized electronic design brings Audi’s growth cycles closer to those in a fast-paced consumer wiring business.

2012 saw a opening of a Modular Infotainment Matrix (MIB) with an NVIDIA T 20 chip as a heart in a Audi A3*. A small one-and-a-half years later, a MIB’s second theatre has been deployed in a Audi TT and in a new Audi A6* and A7 Sportback*. Again, an NVIDIA processor plays a pivotal role. The T 30 is a quad-core chip using a 3D graphic module from dilettante module manufacturer. Rightward to describe shining graphics on dual displays simultaneously. Thanks to a matrix’ modular structure, Audi can keep it invariably present and fast confederate appealing innovations from consumer electronics.

Another chip from NVIDIA, a Tegra 4, powers a Audi inscription debuting in a new Q7. With an active 10.1‑inch display, a Audi tablet’s will yield mobile rear-seat entertainment. In a car, a inscription will bond itself to a on-board infotainment and navigation element around WLAN. What is special about a Audi inscription is that it has been specifically designed for use in a car. This means it is both high-class and robust. Of course, it can also be used on a WLAN outward a car.

Audi as pushing force: electronic architecture
To enhance a lead in hardware, Audi set adult a Progressive Semi Conductor Program (PSCP) in late 2010. Under a program, Audi directly involves not usually a element suppliers though also semiconductor makers. It is a pivotal cause for destiny innovations.

As in hardware, so Audi develops solutions of a possess in module – a charge descending especially to GmbH, a subsidiary.

In automobile electrics, Audi has grown a new, scalable architecture, a 48 volt onboard prejudiced network. It will shortly element required 12 volt networks and assent deployment of new high-performance electric components. These will embody an electric compressor as a extra turbocharger or an extra-strong generator able of improving a aloft volume of kinetic appetite and, when used as a motor, transforming a car’s powertrain into an fit amiable hybrid.

Future power: electromobility – charging though a cable
Under a name e‑tron, Audi intentionally advances a foundation of a powertrain. One of many aspects in this is contactless charging of all- or part-electric e‑tron models. Audi is putting good bid into induction-based supply of energy, famous as Audi wireless charging (AWC).

The code has grown a energy pattern charity countless options so as to yield any patron with a resolution stuffing his or her accurate needs. Approaches operation from a 48‑volt onboard network to plug-in hybrid powertrains. These marry a advantages of a explosion engine with those of electric traction, providing a patron with prolonged range, energy and potency all during a same time.

The launch of a A3 Sportback e‑tron* in 2014 was Audi’s successful opening into plug‑in hybrid technology. This will now be quickly rolled out opposite a indication range, with a middle and tip shred subsequent in line. A new e‑tron indication is set for introduction any year. At a same time, Audi is operative on purely-electric vehicles with high-capacity batteries and absolute motors requiring no compromises in terms of operation and usability.

A demeanour into a future: Audi models during CES
Four fantastic cars turn off Audi’s participation in Las Vegas. They are a TT Roadster, RS 7 Sportback and R8 LMX prolongation models as good as a Audi prologue piloted pushing showcar that was purpose-built for CES.

The showcar expresses on-going record in a whole character. Its brightly illuminated interior fuses a car’s design with a arrangement and control judgment to emanate a novel unit. The whole front of a instrument is executed as a three-part hold display. Add to this an innovative, ultrathin and stretchable OLED (organic light-emitting diode) display.

The showcar’s hybrid powertrain has a robust 4.0 TFSI operative together with a absolute e-motor. System energy outlay of 505 kW (677 hp) and a total torque of both engines of 950 Nm (700.7 lb‑ft) capacitate a Audi voluntary piloted pushing to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62.1 mph) in 3.5 seconds. Its CO2 emissions are 185 g/km (297.7 g/mi).
