Visteon will showcase products and innovations that integrate findings from
its recent consumer research clinics, which focused on in-vehicle experiences
and validating acceptance of next-generation technologies. Insights gained
from these clinics are visible in Visteon's array of vehicle cockpit
electronics solutions, including audio and infotainment, information and
controls, innovation concepts, and Visteon's latest vehicle concept, e-Bee.

The e-Bee makes its North American debut at the 2013 International CES.
Representing Visteon's vision of mobility in the year 2020, the e-Bee uses
innovative technology – including display-based controls and Cloud-centered
profile storage – to create a unique and personalized driving experience.

Fully compatible with electric vehicle and hybrid platforms, the e-Bee
demonstrates intelligent mobility, where the vehicle gathers and disseminates
useful driving-related data, acts as part of a wider mobility-enabling
network, and integrates technology and design that is connected, simple and

"Increasingly, motorists expect their vehicles to deliver the same rich
experience they enjoy with their consumer electronics devices," said Steve
Meszaros, Visteon product group president, electronics. "Our automotive
electronics solutions are designed to bridge the gap between consumer
electronics and the driving experience, making it easier and more enjoyable
for consumers to stay connected to their vehicles and the outside world, while
mitigating distraction."

Like the e-Bee vehicle, Visteon's Innovation Concepts incorporate consumer
research, expertise in design and human-machine interaction (HMI), and
automotive intellect.

  oVisteon's smart screen concept is an HMI for infotainment systems that
    provides a similar look and feel to that of a user's connected smartphone.
    In a recent consumer research clinic, 94 percent of the clinic
    participants indicated they wanted this type of interface.
  oThe Camera-Enhanced Cockpit Concept can assist the driver by providing
    automatic personalization, pedestrian sensing, traffic sign recognition
    and even intruder alerts.
  oThe Human Artificial Bayesian Intelligence Technology (HABIT) uses
    artificial intelligence to learn the driver's habits and use the
    information to create a truly personalized experience.

Other innovation concepts, like the vehicle-to-infrastructure and
vehicle-to-vehicle (V2X) demonstrator, focus on trends in vehicle
communications. The V2X demonstrator addresses potential government-mandated
use cases, like front collision and emergency brake light warnings. Several
driver convenience technologies also have been included: local road condition
alert, point of interest information, traffic jam assistance, disabled car
warnings, and traffic light timing and duplication.

Visteon is also dedicating an area to its Information and Controls portfolio
at CES. On display will be the recently launched Lincoln MKZ instrument
cluster in addition to Visteon's third-generation driver information platform
that sets a new benchmark in vehicle display quality and clarity. Controls
like the Ideal Occupant Interface present several key features that function
easily and offer superior craftsmanship in a rich user-experience environment.
For instance, its smart panel detects the presence of the user's finger, but
does not activate until a small amount of pressure is applied. This "touch
with intent" capability is enhanced with visual and audible feedback and will
be expanded on future implementations with tactile feedback.

The newest addition to its information and controls portfolio is a head-up
display solution that has been developed in partnership with BAE Systems, a
leading global defense and security business. This product delivers
industry-leading display image quality in a compact and efficient optical

Visteon's Audio and Infotainment section is highlighted by a platform that
provides flexible in-vehicle connectivity, audio and entertainment solutions
through a Visteon-branded human-machine interaction (HMI). Visteon's HMI is a
dynamic and flexible interface system structure that enables vehicle
manufacturers to provide intuitive interfaces that meet regional objectives
through a global platform. Also featured is a global digital radio solution
that provides software-reconfigurable mobile reception across multiple digital
radio standards.

"Many of our customers are looking for efficient solutions for global
platforms that allow them to easily provide products to meet regional needs
without adding complexity," said Christian Feltgen, Visteon global director of
cockpit electronics. "The global digital radio is another example of Visteon
working with our customers' to deliver those solutions."
