Cadillac CUE Infotainment System

Cadillac came up with its very own infotainment system, because these days every car should have one. They call it the CUE, or Cadillac User Interface.

The CUE is a very feature-rich for an in-car system, and offers a wide range of capabilities such as pairing up to 10 Bluetooth-enabled mobile devices, USBs, SD cards and MP3 players, voice recognition and advanced multi-touch touchscreen feature. Although touch controls, sliding and pinching, proved to be not very practical to use while driving. But that’s where the voice control comes to play.

The system also comes with Pandora Internet Radio.

The CUE comes with an 8-inch LCD touch screen, seamlessly integrated into the top of the central instrument panel and a motorized fully capacitive  faceplate at the bottom concealing a 1.8L storage area for your mobile phone or other things. The capacitive screen senses the conductive properties of objects, such as a finger.

The industry-first features of CUE include:

  • Proximity Sensing:  As the user’s hand approaches the   LCD screen, command icons appear. Icons can be customized and arranged by consumers to improve ease of use.
  • Haptic Feedback: Buttons on the fully capacitive faceplate pulse when pressed to acknowledge the driver’s commands and helps keep the driver’s eyes on the road.
  • Multi-Touch Hand Gestures: interactive motions (tap, flick, swipe and spread) popularized by smartphones and tablets allow tasks on the LCD screen, such as scrolling lists, zooming maps and searching favorites to be easily accomplished.
  • 12.3 in. LCD reconfigurable gauge cluster (on select models) offers four selectable displays – Simple, Enhanced, Balanced  and Performance  – that can mix traditional vehicle data such as a speedometer and fuel gauge with navigation, entertainment and 3D vehicle image.
  • Natural Speech Recognition lets consumers speak logically with fewer specific commands to recall stored media or input navigation destinations. CUE’s text-to-speech feature will also allow consumers to receive text messages by system voice and to send recorded text messages in return.
  • Linux operating system, “open” software platform and ARM 11 3-core processor, each operating at 400 million of instructions (mips) per second. This  hardware setup offers 3.5 times more processing power  than current infotainment systems, and allow developers to write applications to CUE that be downloaded by consumers
