The annual event “Taipei AMPA and AutoTronics Taipei” was grandly held at Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center on April 19. With the theme of “Intelligent Driver Support Systems for Safety and Electric Vehicles for a Green future”, Taiwan Automotive Research Consortium (TARC) instructed by the Department of Industrial Technology, Ministry of Economic Affairs established “TARC Pavilion” at the site of the event and strongly invited UniMax to set a booth at the pavilion to exhibit the results generated from university–industry–government cooperation with the expectation of promoting the research and development of all kinds of advanced critical system technology for vehicles in Taiwan.
UniMax Electronics Inc. (UniMax) is a professional designer and manufacturer of automotive electronics, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary owned by ASUS Group. With the invitation of TARC, UniMax exhibited their content in-control ivi system at booth L0618.
The content in-control ivi system is developed by UniMax with the structure of the Internet of Vehicles and F2 smart device for vehicles integrates several automotive electronics including HUD, wireless charger, detection technology and dashboard camera, presenting the outstanding capability for the customization of automotive electronics and innovative technology which may help automobile manufacturers around the world to increase their competitiveness in the market.

UniMax indicated that the F2 smart device for vehicles, the core of their content in-control ivi system, complies with the durability and performance requirements of the standard for vehicles. The critical technologies contained by it include a large screen, high sensitivity voice recognition, gesture recognition and GNSS positioning, and it is the only Android device in the world that boots in 8 seconds. With the combination with the technologies of 2A smart charging, NFC and Wi-Fi, the device can effectively meet the needs of automotive electronics from various aspects and fulfill the demand of automobile manufacturers around the world for a hi-spec smart device for vehicles. At the same time, you may boot the Carlink system by connecting a smartphone via a USB cable to the F2 smart device for vehicles.

With the fluent user interface and other industry-leading advantages, the link between a car and a device may be easily built by just connecting them via USB. It is the base of the development, and Carlink is a unique system for the smart device for vehicles developed by UniMax.
By connecting to Carlink, the advanced mirror link feature will be activated, and it will synchronize the control of the smartphone and the smart device for vehicles and enable the link between them. The user may then use the navigation application in the smartphone without the limitation of data for navigation in conventional smart device for vehicles. The open application platform needs no more development and enables the user to use any APP in their smartphone. By mirroring the screen of your smartphone on the smart device for vehicles, the idea of in-vehicle infotainment (IVI) can be realized.

The smart HUD developed by UniMax was also presented at their booth at AutoTronics Taipei. In addition to the durability and performance which meets the requirements of the standard for vehicles, the adoption of virtual image projection technology can help in keeping the sight of the driver on the road. After integrating information provided by the F2 smart device for vehicles, the high-tech visual UI will provide important information including car speed, speed limit warning, traffic condition and Turn-By-Turn. Besides, it also works with a hi-tech fatigue detection system and is able to warn and notify a driver about his/her fatigue in order to further improve the safety during driving.
