Inca Jay: Mid-Tier Digital Cockpit Technology (2022)

Inca Jay: Mid-Tier Digital Cockpit Technology (2022)

Inca Jay is the next-generation infotainment, an improvement from Firebird, a platform my team built last year in 2021. As a Product Owner, I am in charge of the vision of the concept car from ideation to production.

Key Features
  • Our hardware is capable of running two operating systems concurrently. The first powers critical safety features. The second, Android 11, handles non-critical features such as media, phone, or navigation.
  • Alexa is customized to control vehicle temperature, turn on/off the A/C or change the center display orientation to portrait or landscape.
  • Intelligent Conversation Assistant facilitates spoken reminders and playback. The assistant can even help translate between languages! 
  • Our advanced navigation utilizes our High Definition Locator to pinpoint vehicle location. Combined with an AI, the system has real-time road understanding, can provide lane-level navigation, detect object/pedestrian/hazard detection, and more.
  • In-Vehicle Payment uses the interior camera to scan credit card information and store it in a user profile. It then uses facial recognition to authorize payment.
  • Location Insight directs drivers to a parking lot and points out available spots, zones, and space numbers. At a gas station, the car automatically communicates pump numbers, fuel preference, and payment information to simplify the filling-up process.
  • Remote Communication allows car owners to peek into their cars from a distance, perfect for concerned parents or pet owners. It can even reveal the identity of car thieves. 
  • Driver and Passenger Monitoring supports quick facial enrollment and user identification. It detects driver gaze for distraction, road rage, and drowsiness. A combination of this data and hard break/hard acceleration provides a summary of ride quality and true passenger satisfaction that can be useful for rideshare services.
  • Media is the most popular feature in a car. This system redesigns AM/FM, satellite, and cloud-based entertainment (like Spotify)  into one seamless interaction. For additional fun, it features Live Karaoke.
  • A tuning algorithm called Sound Stage by Arkamys delivers an enhanced audio experience on a mid-level speaker setup.
