At the same time, the entire cockpit simplifies the physical buttons.
Officials said that the eye-catching giant horizontal screen in the smart cockpit integrates Baidu’s artificial intelligence technology and the domestic Internet application ecology “the best car for joint venture brands” SYNC + system has been upgraded to the second generation on Ford EVOS. SYNC+ 2.0 Smart Mobility Interconnection System is equipped with the current mainstream Qualcomm Snapdragon 820A automotive processor, providing high-performance, high-stability, and high-scalability in-vehicle computing capabilities and cloud computing platforms. It provides powerful AI functions and smooth card-free. The multi-tasking processing provides performance support.
The SYNC+2.0 Smart Mobility Interconnection System adopts Ford’s latest global UI design style, and the function distribution is more intuitive and concise. The design with a sense of “embossment” makes the touch screen experience more real.
