A deeper look into the Genesis GV60 digital cockpit
We announced in 2021 that Hyundai Motor Company has selected Qt as their key HMI technology partner for all Hyundai, Kia, and Genesis brands. Since then, they have released their new electric luxury SUV Genesis GV60, and we love it!
This blog post digs into some of the coolest HMI innovations in this luxury class EV.
Complete digital cockpit
The GV60 comes equipped with a complete digital cockpit including cluster, in-vehicle infotainment system (IVI), climate control (HVAC), and high-resolution smart mirrors. The UX carefully combines both physical buttons and touch elements, giving the driver control of the key UI elements without moving their hands from the wheel.
Beautifully designed safety
The GV60 cockpit comes with many features designed to increase driver safety.
Digital side mirrors, connected to cameras and OLED monitors, provide a precise and wide viewing angle of the vehicle surroundings, eliminating traditional blind spots.
On the other hand, the highway driving assistant monitors the distance between you and the car in front, automatically maintaining a safe speed and distance. It also comes equipped with an automatic lane-changing assistant, all you need to do is turn the signal on, and the car does the rest for you!
The lane assistant is connected to the navigation, taking into account highway ramps, curves, and speed zones, so it adapts accordingly to keep you safe on the road. The intuitive UI makes using these advanced features easy while clearly communicating the vehicle's intentions to the driver.
Other intelligent features like blind-spot monitoring in the digital cluster highlight potential dangers to the driver, preventing lane changing if another vehicle is in your blind spot. The same feature also lends itself to collision detection when leaving a parking spot, making it a breeze to maneuver in tight and busy areas. This is an excellent example of a relatively simple feature enabled by Qts' next-gen technology that significantly improves driver experience and helps keep people safe on the road.
You might be familiar with the traditional rear-seat seatbelt monitoring systems that warn you if a passenger is not wearing their seatbelt. The GV60 takes this feature to the next level by detecting sudden passenger movement in the back seat, warning the driver of any sudden changes.
Rear-view cameras are a must in modern cars, and the GV60 is taking steps to make parking and reversing in tight spots more accessible than ever. On top of the traditional reverse camera, GV60 also offers surround view monitoring that utilizes real-time 3D graphics to visualize your car in relation to the environment around you.
The remote intelligent parking assist allows you to exit the vehicle while the car parks itself in a tight spot. Yes, it literally can park itself while you watch from the outside!
Over-the-air updates make sure your car never stops evolving
For a vehicle jam-packed with state-of-the-art software, it is vital to make sure you can get the latest updates and new features over the air.
Over-the-air updates were used on older Genesis vehicles to wirelessly update infotainment system features, such as navigation, the digital instrument cluster, and the Head-Up-Display (HUD). With the GV60, the scope of the updates has been further expanded to other critical areas of the vehicle, enabling additional software updates on major electronic devices, including the electric vehicle integrated control device, suspension, brakes, steering wheel, airbags, and ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems).
Technology that makes your life easier
The GV60 comes with dozens of innovative features designed to make your life easier. Some of our favorites are face detection for entering the car and fingerprint recognition for starting the engine.
One of the more innovative convenience features allows you to make payments in the vehicle by registering your card through their Carpay application. This makes the electric vehicle charging experience smooth and painless as your car can automatically pay for the charging without the need to fumble with your credit card or apps.
If it wasn't obvious enough, we adore the new GV60 and cannot wait what other innovations our friends at Genesis and Hyundai do in the future!
