2013 Cadillac CUE New Super Connectivity B-Roll
CADILLAC'S NEW SUPER CONNECTIVITY!
Cadillac Introduces CUE: New, Easy-to-Use Industry-First Control and
Command Technologies for Information & Entertainment
With the introduction of CUE - Cadillac User Experience - Cadillac is
taking the lead in "user friendly" automotive technology. CUE merges
intuitive design with industry-first controls and commands for information
and entertainment data.
Beginning in 2012 in the Cadillac XTS, ATS, and SRX crossover, CUE will be
unique to each consumer as it pairs data from up to 10 Bluetooth-enabled
mobile devices, USBs, SD cards, and MP3 players.
CUE: Safe, Simple and Sophisticated Information Integration for Simple to
CUE will appeal to both tech-savvy drivers and tech-novices alike with
safe, connected driving by way of a system which utilizes natural voice
recognition, fewer buttons, larger icons, an uncluttered screen layout,
greater options for customization, and more. For example, most of today's
luxury cars have approximately 20 buttons controlling the radio and
entertainment functions: CUE reduces that number to just 4 buttons!
CUE allows drivers to safely store such mobile devices as a smart phone or
iPod - and channel the information on those devices, along with navigation
tools, weather maps with Doppler radar, AM/FM radio, instant messages, and
emails through a central portal in the vehicle - allowing the driver to
keep their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road.
8 Inch LCD Screen: Elegant In-Vehicle Hub Resembles Smart Phone
The "heart" of CUE is the 8-inch LCD touch screen which is seamlessly
integrated into the top of the central instrument panel and a motorized,
fully capacitive faceplate at the bottom which conceals a 1.8L storage
area. The LCD screen displays CUE's homepage - which resembles a smart
screen by using large, easy-to-target icons to execute commands.
CUE's LCD screen features the driver's five most frequently used functions
stored along the top of the screen. Along the bottom, users can select up
to 60 favorites from music to points of interest, addresses,
weather/direction maps, phone numbers and system commands.
The steering wheel contains a five-way controller on the right side to
navigate the cluster display, a volume control and buttons to cycle through
favorites. The five-way controller on the left side manages cruise control
functions, voice recognition, and phone hang-up. CUE's customization and
control features are further enhanced through OnStar's suite of safety,
security, and connectivity services.
CUE Auto Industry Firsts
The longer a driver owns their Cadillac with CUE, the more the CUE will do
for the driver as the system is able to be updated - which is an industry
first. Among the additional CUE auto industry firsts include:
● Proximity Sensing: As users hand approaches the LCD screen, command
icons (which can be arranged and customized by the user) appear.
● Haptic Feedback: Faceplate buttons "pulse" when pressed to acknowledge
drivers commands - keeps driver's eyes on the road.
● Natural Speech Recognition: Drivers can speak "logically" with fewer
specific commands to recall stored media or input navigation destinations.
Text-to-Speech feature allows drivers to receive text messages by system
voice and to send recorded text messages in return.
● Multi-Touch Hand Gestures: Interactive motions - tap, flick, swipe,
spread - popularized by smart phones and tablets allow tasks on the LCD
screen, such as scrolling lists, zooming maps, and searching favorites
● 12.3 Inch LCD Reconfigurable Gauge (on select models): Offers four
selectable displays - simple, enhanced, balanced, and performance - that
can mix traditional vehicle data (speedometer, fuel gauge) with navigation,
entertainment, and 3D vehicle image.
● Linux Operating System: Efficient hardware setup offers 3.5 times more
processing power that current infotainment systems.
