This 2013 edition of the cockpits and dashboards report looks at some of the key developments that have taken place since the previous report in 2011. It identifies the most significant technological developments that are having an impact on the design of the cockpit of the future and reviews the industry response.

One of the strongest influences affecting the vehicle interior is the issue of connectivity. Consumer demand for seamless integration of infotainment devices between home and the interior of their vehicle, combined with safety concerns and the management of cognitive overload, have all led to a radical re-think in terms of cockpit layout and the way in which infotainment and internet based systems are accessed when in the vehicle. This report focuses on these developments and how they are influencing future cockpit design and layout. It also looks at trends in selected materials and manufacturing processes as they impact on the cockpit, dashboard and instrument cluster.

Furthermore, the report also provides extracts from the SupplierBusiness database, highlighting some of the current and recently awarded contracts for the main components in the cockpit area.
