The Innovision cockpit in the
new Touareg – an interactive digital landscape consisting of display and
control elements – is the blueprint for the cockpit of the future. A head-up
display lends the perfect finishing touch: it projects a virtual summary of the
latest key information into the driver’s selective field of vision.
Data (the vehicle’s current
speed, the maximum permitted speed, etc.) and visual information from the
navigation system feel as though they are projected into the space immediately
in front of the Touareg, i.e. the street. This ensures the information is
visible to the driver at all times. From a technical point of view, the
information is actually reflected on the windscreen as a transparent display –
hence the name “windshield head-up display". At 217 mm in width and 88 mm
in height, it is the largest head-up display offered by Volkswagen.
The driver can set the
position (height) of the display and vary the display spectrum; in addition to
the speed, features such as traffic sign recognition and navigation guidance
can be activated. Warnings (such as if the vehicle exceeds the maximum
permitted speed) can also be shown. This spectrum also includes information
about currently activated assist systems. Pictograms and information for the
ACC automatic distance control system, cruise control system, night vision
assist system, lane assist system and side assist system (both of which issue
lane departure warnings) can also be projected onto the windscreen. Finally,
the driver can set the display brightness and colour scheme. The brightness is
also automatically controlled depending on the ambient light.
