EVS IN THE
SPOTLIGHT
New electric vehicles and powertrain components
were showcased at CES, as well. Among these were
the all-new Nissan LEAF EV (above) and Hyundai's
second-generation hydrogen fuel cell electric
vehicle (FCEV), named NEXO (below).
NEXO arrives at dealerships this year. One of its
key features is remote smart parking assist (RSPA),
where the vehicle automatically pulls into or out of
a parking spot without a driver inside.

their different seating zones. But heating is approached differently, with
radiant heat emerging from the door
panels rather than from air vents - an
energy-saving measure that could be
important for an electric car.
Gentex, a major supplier of
rearview and sideview mirrors, and
maker of the HomeLink system that
lets people remotely control garage
doors from their cars, demonstrated
more ways to personalize a car. These
included a new biometric rearview
mirror that incorporates an iris scanner to identify the driver and configure their personal vehicle settings, and
a new HomeLink Connect feature
that enables control of smart home
devices via the dashboard screen.
Both technologies were demonstrated in a Land Rover Velar concept
SUV. Gentex also announced at CES
that Jaguar Land Rover will be the

NISSAN'S BRAIN-TO-VEHICLE TECHNOLOGY DEMO AT

first to offer HomeLink Connect for
any of its vehicles equipped with JLR's
InControl Apps feature.
Chipmaker Renesas Electronics
displayed its own "Connected Cockpit"
concept featuring biometric facial
recognition, video screens replacing
the traditional rearview and sideview
mirrors, a software defined radio
(rather than a traditional antennabased radio), multimedia streaming,
and cloud connectivity. It also featured two displays - a 12.5-inch 3D
digital instrument cluster for the
driver and a 17-inch full HD center
screen to show navigation and entertainment functions (securely separated behind the scenes).
Hyundai exhibited its "Intelligent
Personal Cockpit," which is capable of
multiple command voice recognition
(for instance, a bundle of "tell me
tomorrow's weather and turn off the
living room lights at home"). The concept also ties biosensors in the seat and
steering wheel to connectivity, and
Hyundai imagines it could be used to
visually connect a stressed-out driver
to his doctor for a consultation.
Nissan highlighted "Brain-toVehicle" or B2V technology, which
interprets the driver's brainwaves
(gleaned from a headset he wears) to
detect and evaluate discomfort, and
to predict driving intent. For example, the technology can anticipate
when a driver may want to steer or
brake, and would prompt the vehicle
to take this action sooner, thus
enhancing his driving behavior. Or, in
automated driving mode, it can alter
the vehicle's driving style to affect the
passenger's mood.

GENTEX UNVEILED A NEW BIOMETRIC
REARVIEW MIRROR THAT INCORPORATES AN
IRIS SCANNER TO IDENTIFY THE DRIVER AND
CONFIGURE THEIR PERSONAL VEHICLE
SETTINGS, AND A NEW HOMELINK CONNECT
FEATURE THAT ENABLES CONTROL OF SMART
HOME DEVICES VIA THE DASHBOARD SCREEN.
