Ridot-K: a hardened, connected & smart Android HMI with all-in-one interfaces

The automotive industry is constantly evolving with new technologies being developed every day. The digital instrument cluster has been around for quite some time now, but Anvation Labs has taken it a step further with the introduction of Ridot-K - a connected and smart Android HMI for the next-gen 2,3,4 wheeler. With its all-in-one interfaces it allows for greater connectivity and enables next gen features like ADAS. Let's take a closer look at what features Ridot-K brings to the table.

Ridot-K offers a three-camera interface which includes front, back, dash-cam, and side view cams, enabling advanced driver-assistance features. This feature is a significant upgrade over the traditional instrument cluster which usually only displays basic information like speed, fuel level, and RPM. Few examples of what can be done with cameras include

  • Assisted Parking
  • Proximity detection
  • Obstacle detection
  • Threat alert
  • Parking Assistance
  • Lane change assist
  • Incident capturing
  • Driver state detection

With the HMI being powerful enough for video and image analytics the possibilities are limitless. These features have been an impossibility with the current digital MCU based clusters.

Speaker Interface 

The speaker interface in Ridot-K allows all alerts, indicators, and media to be played directly through the HMI. This feature has several benefits. Firstly, it ensures that the driver can receive important notifications and alerts without having to look away from the road. This enhances safety by minimizing distractions and keeping the driver's attention focused on the road ahead. Secondly, by centralizing the audio output within the HMI, it provides a streamlined user experience, allowing drivers to access and control audio features easily.

USB Interface 

Ridot-K offers a USB charging and media interface, which serves as a convenient and versatile feature for drivers. With this interface, drivers can directly charge their phones while on the go, ensuring their devices remain powered throughout their journey. Additionally, the USB media management feature enables drivers to connect their smartphones or USB devices to the HMI and access their media files, such as music or podcasts. This connectivity feature keeps drivers connected and entertained during their trips, enhancing their overall driving experience.

Hardened CAN 

The rugged CAN interface in Ridot-K supports programmable data rates up to 1 Mbps, enabling seamless integration with various electric and BS6 vehicles. This interface's benefits are twofold. Firstly, it allows for effective communication and data exchange between the HMI and the vehicle's internal systems, enabling real-time monitoring and control of important vehicle parameters. Secondly, the rugged design ensures durability and reliability, making Ridot-K suitable for harsh operating conditions, such as off-road environments or heavy-duty applications.

Hardened & Flexible GPI Interface 

The rugged GPI interface in Ridot-K features programmable indicators e.g. left/right, high/low beam, mode switch, kill switch, ignition, D-Pad etc. making it compatible with a wide range of vehicles. This interface's flexibility is particularly advantageous for 2-wheeler vehicles, where space is limited, and careful consideration is required for each feature. The programmable indicators allow for customization and adaptation to different vehicle configurations, ensuring seamless integration and optimal functionality. This feature enhances the versatility of Ridot-K, making it suitable for a variety of vehicle types and models.

Wide Power Supply 

The HMI in Ridot-K provides a wide range, EMI/EMC compliant 12V power supply (9V-15V) for direct battery operation. This feature offers practical benefits in scenarios where adding a dedicated DC-DC power converter might not be feasible or practical. The wide power supply range ensures compatibility with different vehicle electrical systems, allowing for easy installation and integration. It also enhances the HMI's reliability and stability by providing a consistent power source, even in varying voltage conditions.

IP67 Connector 

Ridot-K features an IP67 connector, which guarantees zero water and dust ingression, even from the harness. This connector's robust design ensures the safety and longevity of the HMI, especially in open vehicles where exposure to environmental elements is more significant. The IP67 rating certifies that the connector is highly resistant to water and dust, protecting the internal components from damage and ensuring uninterrupted operation. This feature enhances the durability and reliability of Ridot-K, making it suitable for various outdoor applications and harsh weather conditions.

In conclusion, Ridot-K is a connected and smart Android HMI that brings high-end car-like features to open vehicles. It offers a significant upgrade over conventional digital instrument clusters, providing features like three camera interface, speaker interface, USB charging and media interface, rugged CAN and GPI interfaces, wide-range EMI/EMC compliant power supply, and IP67 connector. This HMI is a game-changer for the automotive industry, especially for 2-wheeler, 3-wheeler, golf cart, and heavy vehicles.
