  • BACKGROUND
  • Whether using private, commercial, or public transport, the movement of people and/or cargo has become a major industry. In today's interconnected world, daily travel is essential to engaging in commerce. Commuting to and from work can account for a large portion of a traveler's day. As a result, vehicle manufacturers have begun to focus on making this commute, and other journeys, more enjoyable.
  • Currently, vehicle manufacturers attempt to entice travelers to use a specific conveyance based on any number of features. Most of these features focus on vehicle safety, or efficiency. From the addition of safety-restraints, air-bags, and warning systems to more efficient engines, motors, and designs, the vehicle industry has worked to appease the supposed needs of the traveler. Recently, however, vehicle manufactures have shifted their focus to user and passenger comfort as a primary concern. Making an individual more comfortable while traveling instills confidence and pleasure in using a given vehicle, increasing an individual's preference for a given manufacturer and/or vehicle type.
  • One way to instill comfort in a vehicle is to create an environment within the vehicle similar to that of an individual's home or place of comfort. Integrating features in a vehicle that are associated with comfort found in an individual's home can ease a traveler's transition from home to vehicle. Several manufacturers have added comfort features in vehicles such as the following: leather seats, adaptive and/or personal climate control systems, music and media players, ergonomic controls, and in some cases Internet connectivity. However, because these manufacturers have added features to a conveyance, they have built comfort around a vehicle and failed to build a vehicle around comfort.
  • SUMMARY
  • There is a need for a vehicle ecosystem that can integrate both physical and mental comforts while seamlessly operating with current electronic devices to result in a totally intuitive and immersive user experience. These and other needs are addressed by the various aspects, embodiments, and/or configurations of the present disclosure. Also, while the disclosure is presented in terms of exemplary embodiments, it should be appreciated that individual aspects of the disclosure can be separately claimed.
  • A method of configuring a heads-up display (“HUD”) of a vehicle dash, comprising: displaying, at a first time, vehicle dash information in a first layout on at least one of a graphical user interface (“GUI”) and a HUD unit to project the vehicle dash information above a vehicle dash, wherein the vehicle dash information comprises one or more applications, and wherein the one or more applications correspond to vehicle readouts such as a speedometer, odometer, tachometer, trip meter, fuel gage, temperature gage, electrical system gage, and indicators; receiving a first input at the GUI, wherein the first input corresponds to an instruction to alter the first layout of the vehicle dash information to a second layout of the vehicle dash information, and wherein the second layout of the vehicle dash information is different from the first layout of the vehicle dash information; selecting, by a processor, the second layout of the vehicle dash information to display on the GUI and project by the HUD unit; and displaying, at a second time, the second layout of the vehicle dash information by the HUD unit.
  • A method of configuring an appearance of one or more applications shown on a heads-up display (“HUD”) of a vehicle dash, comprising: displaying, at a first time, a first appearance of one or more applications on at least one of a graphical user interface (“GUI”) and a HUD unit, wherein the one or more applications correspond to one or more instruments associated with the vehicle dash, and wherein the first appearance corresponds to at least one of a first aesthetic and a first function of the one or more applications; receiving a first input at the GUI, the first input corresponding to an instruction to alter the first appearance of the one or more applications to a second appearance of the one or more applications, and wherein the second appearance of the one or more applications is different from the first appearance of the one or more applications; selecting, by a processor, the second appearance of the one or more applications to display on the GUI and project by the HUD unit; and displaying, at a second time, the second appearance of the one or more applications by the HUD unit.
  • A device for configuring a heads-up display (“HUD”) of a vehicle dash to display one or more vehicle applications, comprising: a Graphical User Interface (“GUI”) including a first display area; an input gesture area of the first display area; a HUD unit; a vehicle signal input/output port, wherein the vehicle signal input/output port is configured to receive and send signals to and from a plurality of vehicle devices; a non-transitory computer readable medium having instructions stored thereon that, when executed by a processor, perform the method comprising: displaying, at a first time, vehicle dash information in a first layout on at least one of the GUI and the HUD unit, wherein the vehicle dash information comprises one or more applications, and wherein the one or more applications correspond to vehicle readouts such as a speedometer, odometer, tachometer, trip meter, fuel gage, temperature gage, electrical system gage, and indicators; receiving a first input at the GUI, wherein the first input corresponds to an instruction to alter the first layout of the vehicle dash information to a second layout of the vehicle dash information, and wherein the second layout of the vehicle dash information is different from the first layout of the vehicle dash information; selecting, by a processor, the second layout of the vehicle dash information to display on the GUI and project by the HUD unit; and displaying, at a second time, the second layout of the vehicle dash information by the HUD unit.
  • The present disclosure can provide a number of advantages depending on the particular aspect, embodiment, and/or configuration. Currently, vehicle dash displays, clusters, and the like are known to include physical and/or electrical instrumentation to provide one or more individuals with interactive elements of various vehicle features. For example, vehicles may include fuel level gages, speedometers, tachometers, indicators, night-vision displays, and other instruments accessible at a dash display or cluster. In some vehicles, the adjustment of instruments may be achieved through physical manipulation of dials, knobs, switches, keys, buttons, and the like at or adjacent to the dash display or cluster. However, the dash displays, or clusters, on most vehicles severely limit the custom configurability, functionality, and/or the location of instruments. Typically, users have access to only adjust the light intensity and in some instances background/foreground colors of a dashboard or instrument panel display. In other words, users cannot fully configure a dashboard or its display.
  • In one embodiment of the present disclosure a configurable dash display is described. Specifically, the present disclosure is directed to a dash display that can be arranged to suit the settings of users, passengers, laws, rules, and/or regulations. In some cases, a dash display of a vehicle may span across, or be separated into, one or more individual screens. It is anticipated that separated screens may share software, communication, power, and even operating system control. The dash display may be configured to display various instruments, indications, warnings, media components, entertainment features, colors, backgrounds, images, and/or the like. Configurability may relate to setting one or more custom and/or predefined layouts to be displayed by one or more visual output devices, such as projected and/or reflected images, screens, and/or touch-sensitive displays. This configurable dash display may be configured to show different layouts for different zones of a vehicle based on preferences associated with one or more individuals in the different zones. It is anticipated that the configurable dash display may occupy a section and/or a substantial portion of the dash of a vehicle. In some instances the configurable dash display may span across an entire dash of a vehicle. This configuration may allow multiple users to monitor and/or access sections of the configurable dash display. For example, one user may be observing driving controls and indicators from one area of the configurable dash display, while another user (or passenger) may be watching a video and/or altering other controls from another area of the display.
  • In some embodiments, the custom configured display layouts may be shown in response to user recognition (whether via, key, chip, gesture, weight, heat signature, camera detection, facial recognition, and/or combinations thereof). This display of configured layouts and the user recognition may be automatically and/or manually initiated. Embodiments of the present disclosure anticipate that display layouts may be modified in response to conditions, sensor signals, communication with peripheral devices, and the like.
  • In another embodiment of the present disclosure, a configurable dash display is shown to incorporate various features and controls that may be selectively configured by an application, user, software, hardware, various input, and the like. Configuration may include adjustments to at least one of the size, location, available features, functions, applications, modules, and behavior of the configurable dash display. In some cases, the dash display may present applications that are capable of receiving input from at least one individual and modify at least one vehicle setting. For instance, the dash display may show a cruise control application where, the speed of the vehicle may be set through the GUI. Additionally or alternatively, the dash display may present applications directed to disability and/or accessibility. For example, the GUI may display speed controls, braking controls, and/or steering control applications, to name a few, that are configured to receive user input and alter at least one function of the vehicle, and even the vehicle control system. It is one aspect of the present disclosure to allow for the integration of custom designed templates of standard dash display layouts that users may manipulate and/or modify. In some embodiments, the layout of one or more applications may be preconfigured in templates that can be selected for display. These preconfigured layouts may be manually or automatically selected and may even be altered after selection. These configurations and/or modifications may be saved and stored. It is anticipated that a vehicle may be divided into zones, or areas of a vehicle. These zones may be associated with dash display layouts such that each zone may share a layout with at least one other zone, have display layouts that are separate from at least one other zone, and/or combinations thereof. It is anticipated that a plurality of applications may be displayed to a user associated with at least one zone. For instance, a speedometer, tachometer, and/or indication application may be displayed to a first user associated with a first zone (and even to a position of the GUI that is associated with the first zone), while a radio, media player, clock, and/or GPS application may be displayed to a second user associated with a second zone (where application or applications displayed to the second user can even be displayed to a position of the GUI that is associated with the second zone).
  • Further, certain controls and/or features may be selected to display in any given position on the dash display. For example, if a user wishes to view an analog speedometer of a vehicle in a specific area on the display, the user may place a “simulated-analog speedometer” module/application on the configurable dash display. The position and/or features of this module/application may be adjusted according to rules and its position may be arranged as desired by the user and/or rules. Additionally or alternatively, the user and/or rules may adjust the size of the module and/or adjust the scale of the module. For instance, in the speedometer example above, the user may wish to view a large dial and as such may increase the speedometer's size to fit the user's desire. In some embodiments, the user may adjust the scale of the displayed speed on the speedometer by specifying a different maximum upper limit. In the aforementioned scenario, the user may decrease the upper speed limit from a 160 mph gage to a 85 mph, for example. Because the speedometer described may be a simulated-analog dial, the measurement (distance) between each displayed speed may increase as the upper limit is decreased. This change in the analog scale may change the accuracy of speed displayed. It is anticipated that changes to scale, units, limits, size, and/or the like may be incorporated on all or most displayable modules/applications.
  • It is anticipated that at least one of the GUI and the HUD may be partitioned into two or more zones. These zones may be physical and/or virtual. For instance, a single GUI and/or HUD may include partitioned zones that represent a virtual grid of display areas. Each of the display areas may display information alone or in conjunction with other display areas of the GUI and/or HUD. As can be appreciated, each of the partitioned zones and/or each display may display vehicle dash information. In some embodiments, at least one of the display areas may be configured to display information, or data, other than vehicle dash information.
  • It is anticipated that recommended positions for the module, or modules, could be provided by the vehicle dash display system. If a user wishes to add a “fuel gage” module to the dash display the user can similarly select position, size, and/or other features associated with the module to best suit the user's needs. A user may access a respective or selected dash display configuration from among a plurality of different dash display configurations by inputting a code or identifier. The result is that different users of a common vehicle or common make, year, and model can have differently configured dash displays. As previously mentioned, a dash display configuration may be shown upon recognizing a particular user.
  • In some embodiments, these modules may be programmed to disappear, dim, or exhibit other functions in response to some type of stimulus. For example, the user may want one or more control modules to dim upon driving. Alternatively, the user may want one or more modules to disappear according to a timer or other stimulus. It is anticipated that the stimulus may include user input, timers, sensors, programmed conditions, and the like.
  • For example, in the event of an accident, access to a vehicle's speed, tachometer, and/or other non-essential modules is of little benefit. In an emergency scenario, the dash display may use one or more sensors, possibly including vehicle sensor (e.g., air bag sensor, gyroscope, or accelerometer), to detect the accident and provide emergency features to a user via the configurable dash display. These features may replace the standard modules arranged on the dash display (e.g., the speedometer and tachometer modules are minimized or removed, replaced by one or more emergency modules). A large “hazard” light module may be created. Additionally or alternatively, an emergency contact module may be provided to allow the user easy access to an emergency communication channel. Contacting the emergency channel could be left to the discretion of the user. As can be appreciated by one skilled in the art, these emergency modules may automatically contact an emergency channel and/or use timers and other sensors to determine whether to initiate contact with the emergency channel.
  • In accordance with the present disclosure, it is anticipated that the vehicle may use sensors in an individual's phone or other device to detect a specific user's heartbeat and/or monitor a user's other vital signs. These vital signs could be relayed to an emergency contact to aid in possible treatment and/or evaluate a necessary emergency response. Using a phone's, or other device's, gyroscope and/or accelerometer to detect a user's heartbeat could be achieved via storing conditions at a time prior to an accident and comparing the stored conditions to those obtained during the emergency. In the event that a user has associated his or her phone and/or device with the vehicle and/or dash display, this process of monitoring, sending, and using the vital sign information could be achieved automatically by the dash display and/or vehicle.
  • In some embodiments components and/or modules of the configurable dash display may be shown by a Heads-Up Display (“HUD”). The HUD, or HUD unit, may be activated by stored user preferences, manual input, and/or in response to conditions. It is anticipated that the stored preferences may include the storage of recognition features that can be interpreted by a processor and associated with at least one individual. As described above, the HUD and/or HUD layout may be initiated, configured, modified, saved, and/or deactivated in a similar or identical manner to the configurable dash display. The HUD may employ various methods and light sources to display the configurable dash display to one or more users, including but not limited to, projection, Cathode Ray Tube (“CRT”), Light Emitting Diode (“LED”), Liquid Crystal Display (“LCD”), Organic Light Emitting Diode (“OLED”), and the like. Embodiments of the present disclosure anticipate configuring the HUD and/or dash display via a touch-screen display. The touch-screen display may be part of the vehicle console, vehicle dash display, and/or other device that is associated with the vehicle. For example, a user may wish to configure the vehicle dash display from a computer, tablet, smart-phone, and/or other device that has been associated with the vehicle. The user may make and store the configurable dash display changes, which may then be transferred to the vehicle dash display automatically and/or upon detecting an input from at least one user.
  • It is an aspect of the present disclosure that the aforementioned configurable dash displays, whether output to one or more screens, devices, and/or shown in a HUD format, may be intentionally limited in configurability and/or display to conform with local, regional, and/or national rules, laws, and/or regulations. For instance, it may be required by a law that every vehicle dash display/cluster includes a speedometer. Although the user may configure the appearance and/or behavior of the speedometer in this case, the user may be restricted from removing a speedometer from the dash display. In embodiments, local laws may differ and the configurable dash display and/or vehicle may access location services to determine if a specific dash module is required in a given area. The location services may include GPS, Wi-Fi Access Points, Cell Towers, combinations thereof, and the like to determine a general or specific location of the vehicle. It is anticipated that the vehicle may make use of one or more devices associated with the vehicle to determine location. The dash display may reconfigure automatically upon detecting a change in location and the laws associated with the location. To prevent possible confusion surrounding the reconfiguration of a dash display, a description and/or message could accompany or precede the change to notify at least one user. For example, a vehicle may be traveling from one country that has no restrictions regarding speedometer display to another that requires the displayed speed on a speedometer to be listed in dual measurements (e.g., mph and kph). In this instance, the configurable dash display may automatically detect the location of the vehicle, refer to rules associated with the locality, and modify the dash display accordingly. These and other advantages will be apparent from the disclosure.
  • In the event that a user has customized a dashboard, and crosses a defined legal boundary (like a state or country border) the current location of the vehicle will define the laws to which the vehicle and associated devices and capabilities must adhere. The original, and other, configuration preferences of a user may be stored in memory. Once the user returns to a geographical location that allows the preset configuration preferences, the configurable dashboard can access the stored memory and may return the dashboard to the preset configuration. It is anticipated that specific geographical location laws could be preprogrammed into a device with which the vehicle communicates, whether the device memory is on-board or remotely located from the vehicle.
  • As can be appreciated, traveling across different legal boundaries and/or geographical locations, where certain instruments may be required and consequently appear and disappear from a dashboard may cause confusion to a user. It is an embodiment of the present disclosure to provide an indication to the user that a specific instrument is required in the given location and/or area. In some embodiments, the user may receive a notification upon crossing a legal boundary. In yet another embodiment, where an instrument is required and added to the dashboard, the instrument itself may contain information that it is a required instrument in the territory in which the vehicle is located. For example, if territory “X” requires an odometer to be a part of the dashboard display, the odometer may appear on the dashboard with a highlighted or otherwise emphasized “X” marker to identify the requirement and the jurisdiction. Capabilities of the console may be enabled or disabled based on vehicle location. For example, communication modes, such as texting, tweeting, email, and the like may be enabled or disabled based on vehicle location. Vehicle location may be mapped against applicable laws of a governmental entity, such as a city, municipality, county, province, state, country, and the like. Alternatively, capabilities of the console may be enabled or disabled based on contract requirements, employer rules or policies, etc.
  • The phrases “at least one”, “one or more”, and “and/or” are open-ended expressions that are both conjunctive and disjunctive in operation. For example, each of the expressions “at least one of A, B and C”, “at least one of A, B, or C”, “one or more of A, B, and C”, “one or more of A, B, or C” and “A, B, and/or C” means A alone, B alone, C alone, A and B together, A and C together, B and C together, or A, B and C together.
  • The term “a” or “an” entity refers to one or more of that entity. As such, the terms “a” (or “an”), “one or more” and “at least one” can be used interchangeably herein. It is also to be noted that the terms “comprising”, “including”, and “having” can be used interchangeably.
  • The term “automatic” and variations thereof, as used herein, refers to any process or operation done without material human input when the process or operation is performed. However, a process or operation can be automatic, even though performance of the process or operation uses material or immaterial human input, if the input is received before performance of the process or operation. Human input is deemed to be material if such input influences how the process or operation will be performed. Human input that consents to the performance of the process or operation is not deemed to be “material.”
  • The term “computer-readable medium” as used herein refers to any tangible storage and/or transmission medium that participate in providing instructions to a processor for execution. Such a medium may take many forms, including but not limited to, non-volatile media, volatile media, and transmission media. Non-volatile media includes, for example, NVRAM, or magnetic or optical disks. Volatile media includes dynamic memory, such as main memory. Common forms of computer-readable media include, for example, a floppy disk, a flexible disk, hard disk, magnetic tape, or any other magnetic medium, magneto-optical medium, a CD-ROM, any other optical medium, punch cards, paper tape, any other physical medium with patterns of holes, a RAM, a PROM, and EPROM, a FLASH-EPROM, a solid state medium like a memory card, any other memory chip or cartridge, a carrier wave as described hereinafter, or any other medium from which a computer can read. A digital file attachment to e-mail or other self-contained information archive or set of archives is considered a distribution medium equivalent to a tangible storage medium. When the computer-readable media is configured as a database, it is to be understood that the database may be any type of database, such as relational, hierarchical, object-oriented, and/or the like. Accordingly, the disclosure is considered to include a tangible storage medium or distribution medium and prior art-recognized equivalents and successor media, in which the software implementations of the present disclosure are stored.
  • The term “desktop” refers to a metaphor used to portray systems. A desktop is generally considered a “surface” that typically includes pictures, called icons, widgets, folders, etc. that can activate show applications, windows, cabinets, files, folders, documents, and other graphical items. The icons are generally selectable to initiate a task through user interface interaction to allow a user to execute applications or conduct other operations.
  • The term “display” refers to a portion of a screen used to display the output of a computer to a user.
  • The term “displayed image” refers to an image produced on the display. A typical displayed image is a window or desktop. The displayed image may occupy all or a portion of the display.
  • The term “display orientation” refers to the way in which a rectangular display is oriented by a user for viewing. The two most common types of display orientation are portrait and landscape. In landscape mode, the display is oriented such that the width of the display is greater than the height of the display (such as a 4:3 ratio, which is 4 units wide and 3 units tall, or a 16:9 ratio, which is 16 units wide and 9 units tall). Stated differently, the longer dimension of the display is oriented substantially horizontal in landscape mode while the shorter dimension of the display is oriented substantially vertical. In the portrait mode, by contrast, the display is oriented such that the width of the display is less than the height of the display. Stated differently, the shorter dimension of the display is oriented substantially horizontal in the portrait mode while the longer dimension of the display is oriented substantially vertical. The multi-screen display can have one composite display that encompasses all the screens. The composite display can have different display characteristics based on the various orientations of the device.
  • The term “gesture” refers to a user action that expresses an intended idea, action, meaning, result, and/or outcome. The user action can include manipulating a device (e.g., opening or closing a device, changing a device orientation, moving a trackball or wheel, etc.), movement of a body part in relation to the device, movement of an implement or tool in relation to the device, audio inputs, etc. A gesture may be made on a device (such as on the screen) or with the device to interact with the device.
  • The term “module” as used herein refers to any known or later developed hardware, software, firmware, artificial intelligence, fuzzy logic, or combination of hardware and software that is capable of performing the functionality associated with that element.
  • The term “gesture capture” refers to a sense or otherwise a detection of an instance and/or type of user gesture. The gesture capture can occur in one or more areas of the screen, A gesture region can be on the display, where it may be referred to as a touch sensitive display or off the display where it may be referred to as a gesture capture area.
  • A “multi-screen application” refers to an application that is capable of producing one or more windows that may simultaneously occupy multiple screens. A multi-screen application commonly can operate in single-screen mode in which one or more windows of the application are displayed only on one screen or in multi-screen mode in which one or more windows are displayed simultaneously on multiple screens.
  • A “single-screen application” refers to an application that is capable of producing one or more windows that may occupy only a single screen at a time.
  • The term “screen,” “touch screen,” or “touchscreen” refers to a physical structure that enables the user to interact with the computer by touching areas on the screen and provides information to a user through a display. The touch screen may sense user contact in a number of different ways, such as by a change in an electrical parameter (e.g., resistance or capacitance), acoustic wave variations, infrared radiation proximity detection, light variation detection, and the like. In a resistive touch screen, for example, normally separated conductive and resistive metallic layers in the screen pass an electrical current. When a user touches the screen, the two layers make contact in the contacted location, whereby a change in electrical field is noted and the coordinates of the contacted location calculated. In a capacitive touch screen, a capacitive layer stores electrical charge, which is discharged to the user upon contact with the touch screen, causing a decrease in the charge of the capacitive layer. The decrease is measured, and the contacted location coordinates determined. In a surface acoustic wave touch screen, an acoustic wave is transmitted through the screen, and the acoustic wave is disturbed by user contact. A receiving transducer detects the user contact instance and determines the contacted location coordinates.
  • The term “window” refers to a, typically rectangular, displayed image on at least part of a display that contains or provides content different from the rest of the screen. The window may obscure the desktop.
  • The terms “determine,” “calculate,” and “compute,” and variations thereof, as used herein, are used interchangeably and include any type of methodology, process, mathematical operation or technique.
  • It shall be understood that the term “means” as used herein shall be given its broadest possible interpretation in accordance with 35 U.S.C., Section 112, Paragraph 6. Accordingly, a claim incorporating the term “means” shall cover all structures, materials, or acts set forth herein, and all of the equivalents thereof. Further, the structures, materials or acts and the equivalents thereof shall include all those described in the summary of the invention, brief description of the drawings, detailed description, abstract, and claims themselves.
  • The term “vehicle” as used herein includes any conveyance, or model of a conveyance, where the conveyance was originally designed for the purpose of moving one or more tangible objects, such as people, animals, cargo, and the like. The term “vehicle” does not require that a conveyance moves or is capable of movement. Typical vehicles may include but are in no way limited to cars, trucks, motorcycles, busses, automobiles, trains, railed conveyances, boats, ships, marine conveyances, submarine conveyances, airplanes, space craft, flying machines, human-powered conveyances, and the like.

In some embodiments, the configurable dash display, or device, 100 may span across one or more displays. As depicted, at least one device 100 may occupy a section of a vehicle dash 104. These one or more displays may be located on or adjacent to the dash 104 of a vehicle 120. It is an aspect of the present disclosure that the configurable dash display may be located such that one or more individuals associated with a vehicle 120 can interact with and/or observe the configurable dash display. The device 100 may comprise a front screen, Graphical User Interface, and/or hardware switches or buttons.
  • It is anticipated that the device 100 may communicate with, and/or be operated independently of, one or more console displays 108 a, 108 b. Communication between the device 100 and at least one additional console display 108 a, 108 b may be achieved through physical and/or wireless methods. It is one aspect of the present disclosure that the device 100 may be configured at the device 100 and/or at least one console display 108 a, 108 b. For example, a user (e.g., a passenger) may wish to configure settings that are associated with the user while the vehicle is being operated by another. In this example, the user could safely arrange and/or configure a dash display for at least one of an operating condition and non-operating condition. The user may then save the configuration and/or arrangement in a memory location that may be associated with at least one user of the vehicle.
  • FIG. 1B depicts a second representation of a configurable dash display/cluster 100 in a general viewing area of a vehicle in accordance with one embodiment of the present disclosure. In particular, FIG. 1B shows the device 100 occupying a substantial portion of the vehicle dash 104. It is an aspect of the present disclosure that the device may occupy the entire space of the dash 104. The device 100 may be configured such that it is the dash 104 of a vehicle. As depicted, the device 100 may be accessible by one or more users (e.g., at least one operator, passenger, etc.). Input may be received at the device 100 from one or more users and/or signals simultaneously. For example, one user may be adjusting controls and configurations of the device that may be associated with one position of the vehicle, while another user may be manipulating controls and/or configurations associated with another position of the vehicle.
  • FIGS. 2A-2G depict multiple representations of a graphical user interface (“GUI”) in accordance with embodiments of the present disclosure. In some embodiments, icons, applications, and/or the presentation layout may be modified via user input and/or automatically via a processor.
  • The configurable dash display, or device, 100 can include a number of devices that work separately or together with at least one process and/or signal of a vehicle to provide various input/output functions. One such device 100 includes a touch sensitive front screen 204. In some embodiments, the entire front surface of the front screen 204 may be touch sensitive and capable of receiving input by a user touching the front surface of the front screen 204. The front screen 204 includes touch sensitive display 208, which, in addition to being touch sensitive, also displays information to at least one user. In other embodiments, the screen 204 may include more than one display area.
  • It is anticipated that the device 100 may include a dual-screen phone and/or smartpad as described in respective U.S. patent application Ser. Nos. 13/222,921, filed Aug. 31, 2011, entitled “DESKTOP REVEAL EXPANSION,” and 13/247,581, filed Sep. 28, 2011, entitled “SMARTPAD ORIENTATION.” Each of the aforementioned documents is incorporated herein by this reference in their entirety for all that they teach and for all purposes.
  • In addition to touch sensing, front screen 204 may also include areas that receive input from a user without requiring the user to touch the display area of the screen. For example, the front screen 204 may be configured to display content to the touch sensitive display 208, while at least one other area may be configured to receive touch input via a gesture capture area 206. The front screen 204 includes at least one gesture capture area 206. This at least one gesture capture area 206 is able to receive input by recognizing gestures made by a user touching the gesture capture area surface of the front screen 204. In comparison to the touch sensitive display 208, the gesture capture area 206 is commonly not capable of rendering a displayed image.
  • In some embodiments, the device 100 may include one or more physical and/or electrical features such as switches, buttons, cameras, ports, slots, inputs, outputs, and the like. These features may be located on one or more surfaces of the device 100. In some embodiments, one or more of these features may be located adjacent to the device. It is an aspect of the present disclosure that the device 100 may communicate with and/or utilize one or more of these features that may be associated with other devices. For instance, the device 100 may communicate with another device (such as, at least one configurable vehicle console, smart-phone, tablet, and/or other computer) that has been associated with the vehicle to, among other things, utilize at least one feature of the other device. In this scenario, the device 100 may use the at least one other device as an extension to receive input and/or gather information.
  • In some embodiments, the device 100 includes a plurality of physical control buttons, which can be configured for specific inputs and, in response to receiving an input, may provide one or more electrical signals to a specific input pin of a processor or Integrated Circuit (IC) in the device 100. For example, the control buttons may be configured to, in combination or alone, control a number of aspects of the device 100. Some non-limiting examples include overall system power, volume, brightness, vibration, selection of displayed items, a camera, a microphone, and initiation/termination of device functions. In some embodiments, instead of separate buttons two buttons may be combined into a rocker button. This arrangement is useful in situations where the buttons are configured to control features such as volume or brightness. In other embodiments, a button may be configured to, in addition to or in lieu of controlling one function, control other aspects of the device 100. In some embodiments, one or more of the buttons may be capable of supporting different user commands. By way of example, a normal press has a duration commonly of less than about 1 second and resembles a quick tap. A medium press has a duration commonly of 1 second or more but less than about 12 seconds. A long press has a duration commonly of about 12 seconds or more. The function of the buttons is normally specific to the application that is currently in focus on the display 208. In an entertainment application for instance and depending on the particular button, a normal, medium, or long press can mean end playback, increase volume of media, decrease volume of media, and toggle volume mute. In a camera or video application for instance and depending on the particular button, a normal, medium, or long press can mean increase zoom, decrease zoom, and take photograph or record video.
  • In embodiments, the device 100 may also include a card/memory slot and/or a port. The card/memory slot, in embodiments, may be configured to accommodate different types of cards including a subscriber identity module (SIM) and/or other card based memory. The port in embodiments may be an input/output (I/O port) that allows the device 100 to be connected to other peripheral devices, such as a vehicle, phone, keyboard, other display, and/or printing device. As can be appreciated, these are merely some examples and in other embodiments the device 100 may include other slots and ports such as slots and ports for accommodating additional memory devices, facilitating firmware and/or software updates, and/or for connecting other peripheral devices.
  • The device 100 may make use of a number of hardware components. For instance the device 100 may include or be configured to communicate with a speaker and/or a microphone. The microphone may be used by the device 100 to receive audio input which may control and/or manipulate applications and/or features of the device 100. In embodiments, device 100 may utilize a camera and a light source, which may be used to control and/or manipulate applications and/or features of the device 100. It is anticipated that the device 100 may utilize one or more cameras, which can be mounted on any surface of the vehicle and/or may be resident to at least one associated device. In the event that the one or more cameras are used to detect user input, via gestures and/or facial expression, the one or more cameras may be located on the front screen 204.
  • It is an aspect of the present disclosure that the device 100 is capable of interfacing with one or more other devices, including a vehicle control system. These other devices may include additional displays, consoles, dashboards, associated vehicle processors, and the like. Vehicle and/or functional communications may be made between the device 100 and the vehicle via communications protocols. Communication may involve sending and receiving one or more signals between a vehicle and the device 100. The device 100 may be connected to at least one other device via a physical, inductive, and/or wireless association.
  • As can be appreciated, the description of the device 100 is made for illustrative purposes only, and the embodiments are not limited to the specific mechanical features shown in FIGS. 2A-2G and described above. In other embodiments, the device 100 may include additional features, including one or more additional buttons, slots, display areas, and/or shapes. Additionally, in embodiments, the features described above may be located in different parts of the device 100 and still provide similar functionality. Therefore, FIGS. 2A-2G and the description provided above are non-limiting.
  • Referring now to FIG. 2A, a first representation of a GUI of a configurable dash display is shown in accordance with one embodiment of the present disclosure. In embodiments, the device 100 is adapted to run and/or display one or more applications that are associated with at least one vehicle function. An application may be displayed onto the touch sensitive screen 204. Additionally or alternatively, the device 100 may run at least one application that is designed to monitor and/or control one or more functions of a vehicle. A number of applications may be available for display on the configurable dash display 100, which may include a computer 212, a gage 214, indicators and/or indicator panel 216, function buttons 220 a, 220 b, a warning indicator 224, turn signals 228 a, 228 b, and the like. In some embodiments, a user may add applications via an application tray that may be accessed by dragging a tray handle 232 from a side of the device 100. In some embodiments, the device 100 may receive input from a number of different sources, including physical, electrical, and/or audible commands. Input may be received at the device 100 through, but not limited to, the touch sensitive screen 204, a microphone, hardware buttons, ports, cameras, and combinations thereof.
  • Other vehicle applications and their corresponding functions may be run by the device 100, including entertainment applications (music, movies, etc.), trip computer applications (to display mileage traveled, miles per gallon fuel consumption, average speed, etc.), phone controls (especially hands-free phones associated with the vehicle), GPS, road conditions and warnings, and other applications useful to a vehicle operator or passenger. It is anticipated that vehicle applications may be purchased and/or managed via the Application Store 560.
  • The Application Store 560 may be similar to an application store for smart phones, mobile devices, and computers. It is anticipated that the present disclosure may use a communications channel or multiple channels available to the vehicle to make an application store purchase and/or download. Moreover, this purchase and download could be effected through the use of at least one individual's phone associated with the vehicle. In some embodiments, the application store may manage one or more applications remotely. This remote management may be achieved on the “cloud,” possibly as part of a cloud-based storage medium.
  • It should be noted that the processing resources required for running, or at least displaying, applications on the device 100 may be split between processors that are associated with the device 100 and processors that are not associated with the device 100.
  • It is another aspect of the present disclosure that the GUI may include an application tray 240 a. The application tray 240 a may be configured to provide access to available dash display applications 236 a, 236 b, 236 c. In addition, the application tray area 240 may display dash display applications available from an application store and/or provide a link to an application store via one or more icons 248. Whether applications have been installed, displayed, purchased, or are available for purchase via the application store icon 248, the various status of an application may be indicated in the application tray area 240 a. For example, if an application is installed and displayed on the device 100, the application icon in the application tray 240 a may appear differently from other icons that are not installed and displayed. In other words, if the icons are displayed in color to illustrate one or more state, they may appear in black and white, or grayscale, to indicate one or more other states. Therefore, given the previous example, available applications may have full color application icons, whereas installed and displayed icons may have grayscale icons. It is anticipated that various states of at least one application icon may be illustrated using various colors, intensities, transparencies, glows, shadows, and the like.
  • FIG. 2B depicts a second representation of a GUI of a configurable dash display in accordance with one embodiment of the present disclosure. Specifically, the GUI shows the device display 208 separated into different areas. As shown, the device display 208 has been separated into two different areas represented as a tray area 240 a and a configuration area 240 b. In embodiments, the tray area 240 a may be revealed by dragging a tray handle 232 in a direction 234 away from a side of the device display 208. Although shown as being accessed from the left side of the device display 208, it should be appreciated that the tray handle 232 and corresponding tray area 240 a may be accessed from any area and/or side of the device display 208. The tray handle 232 may be dragged via input received by the device at one or more gesture capture area 206. Furthermore, the GUI may be separated into one or more different areas.
  • In some embodiments the application tray area 240 a may be accessed by dragging a tray handle 232 or other feature to reveal the application tray area 240 a. Other embodiments may use gesture recognition features of the touch sensitive display 208, gesture capture region 206, and/or associated hardware buttons to access the application tray area 240 a. For instance, the tray area 240 a may be revealed by a gesture drag on the display 208 using one or more fingers. In addition, the tray area 240 a may be displayed in response to a predetermined state of the device 100. Revealing the application tray area 240 a may be visually represented in a number of ways. Moreover, the effect that revealing the tray may have on displayed applications may also be represented in a number of ways. In some embodiments, the application tray area 240 a may fly-out from a side of the device 100. In other embodiments the application tray area 240 a may appear from a location of the display 208. The manner in which the tray area 240 a transitions can be configured with regard to speed, color, transparency, audio output, and combinations thereof. In another embodiment, the application tray area 240 a may be “pulled” in a direction 234 from a side of the device 100 to appear over displayed applications. In yet another embodiment, the application tray area 240 a may be pulled from a side of the device 100 to share the display 208 with any displayed applications. This embodiment may require the resizing of displayed applications to provide adequate display area for the revealed tray area 240 a. In one embodiment, as the tray area 240 a increases in size, the displayed applications may decrease in size, and vice versa.
  • The tray area 240 a may contain various items including but not limited to folders, menu structures, pictures, and/or other icons representative of one or more configurable dash display applications. The items displayed in the tray area 240 a may reside in at least one local memory and/or reside in at least one remote memory location (e.g., the cloud). It is an aspect of the present disclosure that applications may be accessed, purchased, and/or sampled from at least one Application Store 560 via the App Store icon 248. The App Store icon 248 may reside in the tray area 240 a. Once at least one application is chosen, purchased, and/or downloaded, it may be accessible from any number of folders 236 a, 236 b, 236 c, . . . , 236 n and/or as an icon displayed to the GUI. Navigation through various menu structures and/or access to additional features may be made via one or more menu function icons 244.
  • The tray area 240 a and/or the configuration area 240 b of the GUI may include one or more user-activated buttons, including but not limited to, a preferences icon 252, Heads-Up Display (“HUD”) icon 256, and a save icon 260. In some embodiments, the preferences icon 252 may be used to alter the manner in which content is presented to the device display 208. The HUD icon 256 may be used to change the configuration display screen 280 and/or display the configured dash display onto a HUD. The HUD may employ various methods and light sources to display the configurable dash display to one or more users, including but not limited to, projection, Cathode Ray Tube (“CRT”), Light Emitting Diode (“LED”), Liquid Crystal Display (“LCD”), Organic Light Emitting Diode (“OLED”), and the like. The save icon 260 may be used to save one or more of the configured dash displays. Each configuration may be associated with one or more users. The HUD configuration may be saved via the save icon 260. In some embodiments, the functions associated with the user-activated buttons may be accessed automatically and/or in response to at least one signal sent by a processor.
  • The configuration area 240 b of the GUI may contain various items including but not limited to folders, menu structures, pictures, and/or other icons representative of one or more configurable dash display applications. For example, the configuration area 240 b may show a configuration display screen 280. This configuration display screen 260 represents the arranged GUI of the device which may be configured in this area of the device screen 208. It is one aspect of the present disclosure that applications from the tray area 240 a may be dragged and dropped into place on the configuration area 240 b of the device screen 208. Once inside the configuration area 240 b each application may be adjusted according to desired user specifications. Various configurations represented by the configuration display screen 280 may be saved by initiating a save function through a save icon 260.
  • FIG. 2C depicts a third representation of a graphical user interface of a configurable dash display in accordance with one embodiment of the present disclosure. In particular, a user 264 is accessing an application from a menu structure 236 a in the tray area 240 a. The user may select one or more applications from any menu structure, or combination of menu structures, and drag the application around the GUI in any direction 268. For example a user may wish to select a new gage from the meters folder 236 a and drag it to the configuration area 240 b for deployment in the configuration display screen 280 and even be displayed in the configurable dash display GUI.
  • Referring now to FIG. 2D a fourth representation of a graphical user interface of a configurable dash display in accordance with one embodiment of the present disclosure is shown. As shown, a user 264 has dragged a meter application 218 in a direction 272 that crosses the tray area 240 a and configuration area 240 b separator, the tray handle 232. The meter application may have been chosen from a folder 236 a in the tray area 240 a to be dropped in the configuration display screen 280 of the configuration area 240 b. It is an aspect of the present disclosure that one or more applications may be dragged between the tray area 240 a and the configuration area 240 b, and vice versa. The applications may be dragged from one area to be dropped in another and/or dragged and dropped within the same area. The behavior of a dropped application may change if the area from which it was dragged differs from the area to which it is dropped. For instance, an application may be dragged from the tray area 240 a to be dropped in the configuration area 240 b. In this case, the application behavior on this type of drag may be configured to add the application to the configuration area and/or the configuration display screen 280. In contrast, the same application may be dragged from the configuration area 240 b to be dropped in the tray area 240 a. In this scenario, the behavior of the application may be configured to delete the application from the configuration area 240 b once it is “dropped” in the tray area 240 a. In this scenario, it is not necessary that the application be added to the tray area 240 a. This application behavior may be configured to be interchangeable between areas and/or configured to be similar between areas.
  • FIG. 2E depicts a fifth representation of a graphical user interface of a configurable dash display in accordance with one embodiment of the present disclosure. In general, the display of an application is shown being altered by at least one user 264. In accordance with the present disclosure, applications may be altered to display in a number of different ways. Applications may be altered from the configuration display screen 280, upper console 108 a, lower console 108 b, alternate associated device, and/or from the configurable dash display GUI. For example, a gage, or simulated-analog speedometer, 218 may be adjusted for size. The size may be changed to suit the desires of a user or accommodate a GUI configuration. For example, FIG. 2E shows a simulated-analog speedometer gage 218 being resized via the input of a user 264. In this example, a user has touched different points of the gage 218 with each finger and is dragging the gage 218 points away from each other in different directions 274 a, 274 b. Dragging the gage 218 apart, as shown, may be configured to increase the size of a gage 218. As may be expected, the operation can be reversed, that is by dragging two points of the gage 218 closer together. This closer moving drag may be employed to decrease the size of a gage 218. Some benefits of resizing and/or altering the appearance of gages 218 include, but are not limited to, accommodating near-sighted handicaps, adjusting the overall aesthetic of the GUI, and placing emphasis on one or more gages 218. In some instances, several gages, or applications, may be preconfigured for size and appearance and saved as custom layouts. Although preconfigured, the components that comprise the custom layouts may be altered as described herein.
  • FIG. 2F depicts a sixth representation of a graphical user interface of a configurable dash display in accordance with one embodiment of the present disclosure. In general, another display of an application is shown being altered by at least one user 264. As described above, applications may be altered to display in a number of different ways. These applications may be altered from the configuration display screen 280 and/or from the GUI. FIG. 2F shows a user altering the scale of a simulated-analog speedometer gage 218. Specifically, a gage 218 like a simulated-analog speedometer may be installed with preset upper limits. For instance, most vehicles may display an upper limit on a speedometer that may not be attainable by the vehicle. In this example, it may be desired to increase the accuracy of an analog or simulated-analog gage by decreasing the upper limit to a reasonable and/or attainable number. Because the size of the gage 218 may be held constant, while the original upper limit is reduced the original distances between speeds may be increased in response. This scale change results in an increase in displayed accuracy. It is anticipated that this procedure may be reversed to set higher upper limits.
  • Additionally or alternatively, the units of measurement displayed by an application may be modified and/or changed to display in a number of given measurement systems. For example, a user may purchase a vehicle in a metric measurement country, and as such, the vehicle may display kilometers per hour (kph) on a simulated analog gage application, possibly as a “default” or user-programmed setting. In the event that the purchaser wishes to enter to an imperial measurement country, the simulated analog gage application may be modified to display in miles per hour (mph). It is anticipated that the simulated analog gages and other application may display any range of units in accordance with known and/or programmed measurement systems. The vehicle may automatically set scales, units, and/or adjust the gage 218 in response to a specific input. For instance, once the vehicle reaches a speed not displayed, or approaches the upper display limit, the scale may change to accommodate the new speeds. An alert may be presented to indicate a change to the display of one or more applications.
  • FIG. 2G depicts a seventh representation of a GUI of a configurable dash display in accordance with one embodiment of the present disclosure. In some instances, the GUI may show a warning, message, and/or application output that utilizes all, or a substantial portion, of the display 208. Although applications may utilize a portion of the display 208 and even be configured for functionality and aesthetics, it is anticipated that certain features may be considered more important than others, especially in the event of an emergency. Therefore, it may be desired to display important information to the display 208 over, or in place of, other applications. For example, in the event of an accident, the vehicle may associate a number of warnings and/or messages to the event. In some cases, these warnings and/or messages may be important for the at least one vehicle operator and/or passenger to review and even respond to. As shown in FIG. 2G, a warning message, indicator, and/or cue image 224 may be presented to the display 208 by the device 100. This information may be presented in response to input detected by the device 100, through GPS, gyroscopic, and/or accelerometer data. Additionally or alternatively, the information may be presented in response to the device 100 detecting input received from the vehicle and/or at least one peripheral device associated with the vehicle.
  • The information (warnings, messages, cues, and the like) may be displayed permanently, semi-permanently, or temporarily depending on predetermined settings and/or legal requirements. Permanently displayed information may be shown if an individual has attempted to modify the device 100 or alter specific vehicle systems without authorization. Information of this type may also be displayed permanently if the vehicle and/or the device 100 detects a condition that warrants the permanent display of information, such as a catastrophic engine failure, a dangerous operating condition, and/or other similar conditions. Semi-permanent displayed information may be shown on display 208 until reset via an authorized method. For instance, if the vehicle requires maintenance, a semi-permanent image may be displayed until the maintenance has been received and the semi-permanent image is removed. It is anticipated that the removal of semi-permanent images may be made by authorized personnel. Authorized personnel may make use of special input, and/or devices to remove/reset the image from the display 208.
  • In some embodiments, one or more images 224 (associated with warnings, messages, cues, and the like) may appear on the display 208, which may even be followed by directions, recommendations, and/or controls. Continuing the previous example, if a vehicle is involved in an emergency event (such as an accident), a warning image may be displayed followed by directions and access to specific vehicle controls. The displayed image 224 may be shown above other applications that are displayed on the device 100. Additionally or alternatively, the displayed image 224 may replace other applications and/or displayed information previously shown on the display 208. In embodiments, warnings and/or warning images may appear on more than one screen, display, and/or device associated with the device 100.

As depicted, the HUD device 300 may be accessible by one or more users (e.g., at least one operator, passenger, etc.). Input may be received by the HUD device 300 from one or more users and/or signals simultaneously. For example, one user may be adjusting controls and configurations of the HUD device 300 that may be associated with one position of the vehicle 120, while another user may be manipulating controls and/or configurations associated with another position of the vehicle 120.
  • FIG. 3C depicts a third representation of a configurable heads-up dash display/cluster in a general viewing area of a vehicle 120 in accordance with one embodiment of the present disclosure. In particular, FIG. 3C shows the HUD device 300 being configured by a user at one of the vehicle console displays 108 b. During the configuration of the HUD device via at least one of the console displays 108 a, 108 b, a configuration display screen 280 may be shown in part of or substantially most of a console display 108 a, 108 b GUI.
  • FIG. 3D depicts a fourth representation of a configurable heads-up dash display/cluster in a general viewing area of a vehicle 120 in accordance with one embodiment of the present disclosure. In particular, the HUD device 300 is displaying a warning indicator, message, and/or cue image 224. The warning indicator 224 may behave, be configured, and/or be displayed as described above, specifically with respect to FIG. 2G. All of the aforementioned applications, images, and behaviors may be modified as required by law and/or rules.

  • FIG. 5 depicts a block diagram of an embodiment of the device software and/or firmware. The memory 508 may store and the processor 504 may execute one or more software components. These components can include at least one operating system (OS) 516, an application manager 562, a dash display desktop 566, and/or one or more applications 564 a and/or 564 b from an application store 560. The OS 516 can include a framework 520, one or more frame buffers 548, one or more drivers 512, and/or a kernel 518. The OS 516 can be any software, consisting of programs and data, which manages computer hardware resources and provides common services for the execution of various applications 564. The OS 516 can be any operating system and, at least in some embodiments, dedicated to mobile devices, including, but not limited to, Linux, ANDROID™, iPhone OS (IOS™), WINDOWS PHONE 7™, etc. The OS 516 is operable to provide functionality to the device 100 by executing one or more operations, as described herein.
  • The applications 564 can be any higher level software that executes particular console functionality for the user. Applications 564 can include programs such as vehicle control applications, email clients, web browsers, texting applications, games, media players, office suites, etc. The applications 564 can be stored in an application store 560, which may represent any memory or data storage, and the management software associated therewith, for storing the applications 564. Once executed, the applications 564 may be run in a different area of memory 508.
  • The framework 520 may be any software or data that allows the multiple tasks running on the device to interact. In embodiments, at least portions of the framework 520 and the discrete components described hereinafter may be considered part of the OS 516 or an application 564. However, these portions will be described as part of the framework 520, but those components are not so limited. The framework 520 can include, but is not limited to, a Surface Cache module 528, a Window Management module 532, an Input Management module 536, an Application Model Manager 542, a Display Controller, one or more frame buffers 548, and/or an event buffer 556.
  • The Surface Cache module 528 includes any memory or storage and the software associated therewith to store or cache one or more images of applications, windows, and/or console screens. A series of active and/or non-active windows (or other display objects, such as, a desktop display) can be associated with each display. An active window (or other display object) is currently displayed. A non-active window (or other display objects) was opened and, at some time, displayed but are now not displayed. To enhance the user experience, before a window transitions from an active state to an inactive state, a “screen shot” of a last generated image of the window (or other display object) can be stored. The Surface Cache module 528 may be operable to store a bitmap of the last active image of a window (or other display object) not currently displayed. Thus, the Surface Cache module 528 stores the images of non-active windows (or other display objects) in a data store.
  • In embodiments, the Window Management module 532 is operable to manage the windows (or other display objects) that are active or not active on each of the displays. The Window Management module 532, based on information from the OS 516, or other components, determines when a window (or other display object) is visible or not active. The Window Management module 532 may then put a non-visible window (or other display object) in a “not active state” and, in conjunction with the Task Management module Task Management 540 suspends the application's operation. Further, the Window Management module 532 may assign a display identifier to the window (or other display object) or manage one or more other items of data associated with the window (or other display object). The Window Management module 532 may also provide the stored information to the application 564, or other components interacting with or associated with the window (or other display object). The Window Management module 532 can also associate an input task with a window based on window focus and display coordinates within the motion space.
  • The Input Management module 536 is operable to manage events that occur with the device. An event is any input into the window environment, for example, a user interface interactions with a user. The Input Management module 536 receives the events and logically stores the events in an event buffer 556. Events can include such user interface interactions as a “down event,” which occurs when the screen 204 receives a touch signal from a user, a “move event,” which occurs when the screen 204 determines that a user's finger is moving across a screen(s), an “up event, which occurs when the screen 204 determines that the user has stopped touching the screen 204 etc. These events are received, stored, and forwarded to other modules by the Input Management module 536. The Input Management module 536 may also map screen inputs to a motion space which is the culmination of all physical and virtual display available on the device.
  • The frame buffer 548 is a logical structure(s) used to render the user interface. The frame buffer 548 can be created and destroyed by the OS kernel 518. However, the Display Controller 544 can write the image data, for the visible windows, into the frame buffer 548. A frame buffer 548 can be associated with one screen or multiple screens. The association of a frame buffer 548 with a screen can be controlled dynamically by interaction with the OS kernel 518. A composite display may be created by associating multiple screens with a single frame buffer 548. Graphical data used to render an application's window user interface may then be written to the single frame buffer 548, for the composite display, which is output to the multiple screens 204. The Display Controller 544 can direct an application's user interface to a portion of the frame buffer 548 that is mapped to a particular display 208, thus, displaying the user interface on only one screen 204. The Display Controller 544 can extend the control over user interfaces to multiple applications, controlling the user interfaces for as many displays as are associated with a frame buffer 548 or a portion thereof. This approach compensates for the physical screen 204 and any other console screens that are in use by the software component above the Display Controller 544.
  • The Application Manager 562 is an application that provides a presentation layer for the window environment. Thus, the Application Manager 562 provides the graphical model for rendering. Likewise, the Desktop 566 provides the presentation layer for the Application Store 560. Thus, the desktop provides a graphical model of a surface having selectable application icons for the Applications 564 in the Application Store 560 that can be provided to the Window Management Module 556 for rendering.
  • Further, the framework can include an Application Model Manager (AMM) 542. The Application Manager 562 may interface with the AMM 542. In embodiments, the AMM 542 receives state change information from the device 100 regarding the state of applications (which are running or suspended). The AMM 542 can associate bit map images from the Surface Cache Module 528 to the applications that are alive (running or suspended). Further, the AMM 542 may provide a list of executing applications to the Application Manager 562.
  • Referring to FIG. 6, a flow diagram depicting a first configurable dash display method 600 is shown in accordance with embodiments of the present disclosure. A device 100 may be displaying one or more applications on the GUI of a dash display in a first presentation layout (step 604). The method continues by detecting input received at the device 100, in particular at the GUI (step 608). This input is interpreted by the device 100 to determine a corresponding processor action (step 612). For instance, the received input may represent an instruction to change the first presentation layout displayed on the device 100 at which point the method continues at step 616. Alternatively, the received input may be some other type of recognized and/or unrecognized input and the processor may determine alternate action based on this input. In the event that the input is determined as an instruction to change the presentation layout, the processor selects a second presentation layout to display on the GUI, and sends a command to display the second presentation layout at step 616.
  • The method 600 may continue by detecting further input at the GUI (step 620). This further input may represent a plurality of commands, including but not limited to a change presentation layout command or an application control command. In the event that the input represents a change presentation layout command, the method may continue at 612. However, in the event that the input represents an application control command, the method continues at step 628. The processor may determine which vehicle function is to be controlled based on the input and control the function as the input directs (step 628). Once the vehicle function is controlled, the method 600 may continue at step 620 to detect additional input and may even repeat the process 600.
  • FIG. 7 is a flow diagram depicting a second configurable dash display console method 700 in accordance with embodiments of the present disclosure. In general, the method 700 is directed to an automatically configurable dash display in response to specific inputs detected. The method begins at step 704, where the device detects input received. This input may be received via a communication interface with the vehicle and/or with associated devices. For instance, input may include but is not limited to that received from one or more phones associated with a vehicle. Additionally or alternatively, the input may be received from sensors and/or equipment associated with the vehicle. For example, the input may be in the form of a sensor signal sent via CAN Bus and associated controllers to the device 100. The method 700 continues at step 708, where the processor determines whether the input received qualifies as an emergency event. It may be desired to store in memory specific signals and/or signal conditions that the device 100 may refer to in determining one or more emergency event matches. In the event that the input received indicates an emergency event has occurred, an emergency identifier may be displayed on the GUI (step 712). This identifier may be displayed on any available GUI that is in communication with, or part of, the device 100, including a heads-up display or HUD unit.
  • The method 700 may include an alert and/or alarm along with the display of an emergency identifier when an emergency is detected (step 716). The alarm, as described above, may include at least one audible output, and/or visual alarm indicators. Visual alarm indicators may emphasize an existing and/or newly displayed application. Additionally or alternatively, the visual alarm indicator may de-emphasize non-essential displayed applications. This de-emphasis may take the form, but is not limited to, one or more of dimming, hiding, resizing, and generally altering the display of one or more applications. It is anticipated that the alarm may be acknowledged by a user from entering input at the device 100 (step 724). Further, the alarm and/or the emergency event may be reset based on rules (step 728). For instance, a user may acknowledge an alarm event and silence, reset, and/or remove an alarm by providing a specific input to the display. Rules stored in a memory may determine whether the alarm and/or emergency event may be reset. The device 100 may detect input at the GUI, which may be equipped with various features as described above, including a camera, microphone, and touch sensitive display (step 720). For example, the device 100 may be configured to receive audible, visual, touch, and/or a combination thereof as the various input. Additionally or alternatively, one or more specific icons may be selected automatically by the processor. This automatic selection may be in response to certain signals that represent a priority of emergency.
  • FIG. 8 is a flow diagram depicting a third configurable dash display method in accordance with embodiments of the present disclosure. In general, the method is directed to changing an appearance of one or more applications based on input received. A device 100 may be displaying one or more applications on the GUI and/or HUD unit of a dash display in a first appearance (step 804, 806). The method continues by detecting input received at the device, in particular at a GUI associated with the device 100 (step 808). This input is interpreted by the device 100 to determine a corresponding processor action (step 812). For example, the received input may represent an instruction to alter the first appearance of at least one application displayed on the GUI at which point the method continues at step 818. Alternatively, the received input may be some other type of recognized and/or unrecognized input and the processor may determine at least one other action based on this input. In the event that the input is determined as an instruction to change the at least one application appearance, the processor selects at least one second application appearance to display on at least one of the GUI and HUD unit, and sends a command to display the at least one second application appearance at step 818. The method 800 may continue by repeating the process for any other appearance changes and/or layout changes.
