Chrysler’s Technology: A Brain-Powered Future
During the annual CES convention a few weeks ago in Las Vegas, Samantha Foss explains that the Chrysler brand debuted the exciting future of Stellantis intelligent technology and unparalleled design.
Even though Chrysler only has two vehicle models on the roads at the moment — the 300 sedan (which will be removed from the lineup at some point this year) and the Pacifica minivan —, Stellantis has again premiered a concept that shows off futuristic capabilities wearing the Chrysler badge.
Chrysler’s Last Year’s Showcase
At the CES convention last year, the company boasted its Chrysler Airflow Concept. The vehicle, a powerhouse of clean mobility, was crafted to display the future technological design and interior of the automaker’s first battery-electric car, due to hit the roads in 2025.
Alongside this debut, the company announced its plan to have a completely electric portfolio by 2028.
Introducing The Chrysler Synthesis Cockpit
But the brand’s CES premier this year was arguably even more exciting.
The all-new two-seat Chrysler Synthesis Cockpit flaunts three technologies the company has already displayed to the world. These are as follows:
- STLA Brain
- STLA AutoDrive
- STLA Smart Cockpit
The car is designed around the theme “Harmony in Motion.” According to Chrysler, this epitomizes the seamless combination of technology, product, purchase, and ownership.
Like humans, the concept has a brain — the STLA Brain, which acts as the nerve center. It’s an electrical system that utilizes highly advanced technology across the entire command center.
The command center itself boasts 37.2 inches of infotainment sleekly adhered to the dashboard.
STLA Smart Cockpit
While STLA Brain is the inner workings of the vehicle, the STLA Smart Cockpit is the consumer-facing side of things. It’s the interactive features of the massive infotainment system that are bound to blow drivers away.
But Chrysler says it’s far more than an in-car ordeal.
The automotive company published a press release stating that the STLA Smart Cockpit can become a virtual personal assistant. Depending on how owners plan to utilize the technology, it can manage their digital lives at home, at work, and via smartphones and other devices.
Layers Upon Layers of Exciting Tech
The STLA Brain comprises a myriad of technology to make the Smart Cockpit do more than just operate in-car features, including:
- MyDay — It combines calendars and schedules, utilizing them to suggest the optimal time for the user to charge their vehicle. On top of that, it maps out an intelligent trip plan for the day, ensuring drivers get to their destinations on time.
- Chill/Zen/Fun Modes — When the car is stationary or driving autonomously, these modes provide sensory experiences for all occupants, such as meditation, DJ games, and karaoke.
- STLA Drive — It boasts Level 3 autonomous driving tech, enabling hands-off steering wheel operation.
- Vehicle Welcome — It uses biometric recognition to spout a welcome message via the personal assistant.
The above technology will be updated via OTA (over-the-air) system. As of today, many vehicles already on the road use this to keep GPS systems updated.
