After the AD/ADAS functions, the intelligent configuration of cockpits has been massively available for utility vehicles. At this stage, commercial vehicle cockpits mainly inherit the design concept of passenger cars, and first evolve to large screens, voice interaction and entertainment, which can be regarded as the migration of passenger car functions.

Big screen

As the most common display interfaces, center console displays and cluster displays feature large sizes and integration. Screen size has gone from the traditional 7-inches to 10-inches, and some brands are starting to use 12-inch or even 15-inch screens. What is displayed covered more information like front traffic light rest wait time and surrounding obstacle information in LCD era instead of just showing speed, fuel consumption in the last mechanical era.

For example, the 12.3-inch floating LCD cluster used by the SITRAK C9H tractor can display vehicle information such as speed, fuel quantity, mileage, gear position, rpm, and messages. of error.

The Tesla Semi truck is equipped with two 15-inch screens, of which the left one displays real-time vehicle parameters and the right one deals with navigation and entertainment. The side view of the truck captured continuously by the side cameras is displayed on a quarter of the two screens near the edge to avoid blind spots.

Voice interaction

The demanding driver attention in commercial vehicle driving scenarios makes voice interaction the most suitable HMI mode today. Unlike interaction modes such as mechanical buttons and touch screen, voice interaction can liberate hands and eyes, reduce operational risks in driving scenarios and improve safety. Now the voice assistant can enable functions such as sound source localization, semantic understanding and single-sentence multitasking, in addition to an increase in recognition accuracy.

The center console screen of Sany Heavy Truck Jiangshan Edition features voice interaction consisting of more than 3,000 phrases, smartphone-based user interface design, and `Kasheng` or “Saint Truck” (the avatar of Sany heavy truck).


With the increasing number of drivers born in the 1980s and 1990s, there is a growing demand for smart cockpit entertainment. The center console screen has been deeply integrated into the commercial vehicle and is evolving into an intelligent terminal. While vehicle control, ADAS reminders and Internet of Vehicles are adhered to, entertainment has also become a key feature, with the availability of content offered by iQiyi, WeChat, Koowo Music, Ximalaya FM, Tuhu and others successively on vehicles to enrich leisure in the commercial vehicle cabin.

SAIC Hongyan GENLYON H6’s center console floating screen, for example, integrates Tencent’s powerful ecosystem and installs nearly 50 apps to satisfy truck drivers in terms of social life, entertainment, mobility, maintenance vehicle, refueling, etc. mobility, but also further improves the gameplay of the console screen.

From the perspective of application scenarios, however, there is an essential distinction between commercial vehicle and passenger car. As a type of production equipment, the utility vehicle emphasizes cost and efficiency, and should be added to functional practicability and convenience around the long-term cockpit.

For instance:

New cockpit design

An increasing number of larger flexible screens and seating arrangements will be prominent in future cockpit design, which can be seen from the layout of the concept models.

Hyundai HDC-6 Neptune uses a ring-shaped display (in which eight screens are integrated), the driver’s side displays cluster information, navigation information and function applications on the right, the A-pillars on the left and on the right display blind spot images, and the top reveals the surroundings. Additionally, the seats can be rotated to fit more scenarios.

Mercedes-Benz Future Truck 2025 has new steering wheel buttons and rotating seats, and replaces the legacy console screen with a removable tablet.

IVECO Z TRUC is equipped with LCD cluster, removable center console screen, steering wheel control screen, LCD rear view display, etc., and its seats, steering wheel, pedals and its console can be adjusted separately to ensure personalized comfort and services for drivers.

Obvious trend of cockpit system integration

The new centralized domain architecture will be applied to commercial vehicles amid high demand for cockpit platforms, and the integration stands out.

Cookoo’s AutoCabin-J3-Truck smart cockpit system solution, based on its “ACU203 centralized domain controller”, leverages the i.MX8QM automotive-grade chip and supports multi-system software or hardware partition technology, with a single processor driving the central control Multimedia system, LCD cluster information system, entertainment screen, etc. Plus 6 surround view cameras, front camera and cargo compartment monitoring camera, peripheral units like T-BOX and vehicle signals, it provides a new generation of integrated intelligent cockpit system for trucks (trucks heavy, light trucks, cargo trucks, tractors, etc.)

Based on domain controllers, Honorsun’s smart cockpit architecture includes full LCD cluster, center console display, drive module, AVM 360, rear view camera, active security monitoring camera , a smart bracelet and other hardware components. The software renders a layered bottom-up design, encompassing CarNetOS-BIOS, CarNetOS-BSP, CarNetOS-APP and other layers, to standardize software interfaces in accordance with safety requirements of automotive regulations.

Deep fusion of driving and living

For truckers, trucks are their home, so the integration of cockpit and living cabin will please them greatly and make them happier.

Geely’s Homtruck concept (to be launched in 2024) is designed with a shower room, toilet, single bed, refrigerator, teapot, etc. There is also an outdoor kitchen and a washer-dryer under the door, emphasizing the concept of “home”. .

Jiefang Yingtu is equipped with a suite, a bathroom, a kitchen, a home theater system, a 1.4 meter berth, WiFi, a TV, a large screen, etc., which considerably improves the habitability of the cockpit.

The IVECO Z TRUCK features the concept of a variable cockpit. The driver can reconfigure the cockpit according to various needs (manual driving, autonomous driving, office, rest) in order to ensure greater efficiency and working comfort.

Smartlink, a commercial vehicle IoV company, creates a 3-in-1 cockpit (smart driving, smart life and smart cargo) based on domain controller computing to provide more innovative services around logistics demand.

New emerging business models

As cockpit intelligence matures, data inside and outside the cockpit will be connected, and platforms for drivers, fleet management and cargo owners will be Seamlessly linked, even service platforms for financial services, insurance and maintenance will be linked to the cockpit. system. As a result, new business models will constantly emerge.

In a nutshell, as an emerging industry, the intelligent cockpit of commercial vehicles always holds more potentials in practical application scenarios through various software and hardware technologies such as 5G, HMI, high computing power, new E/E and OTA architectures.
