Empowering Automakers with Tailored Instrument Clusters
Leveraging over two decades of extensive expertise in the automotive industry, KritiKal excels in advancing the development of cutting-edge automotive solutions. Our core focus lies in accelerating the seamless integration of state-of-the-art instrument clusters, driving the transformative shift towards digitizing vehicle interiors.
Our specialization revolves around the intricate and demanding world of automotive-grade instrument clusters, which encompass a wide array of components including LCD screens, backlighting, touch screens, cover lenses, and more. These multifaceted electric vehicle instrument clusters serve as the nerve center of the vehicle, delivering precise and vital information at all times to ensure an undistracted and safe driving experience, all facilitated through a sophisticated Human-Machine Interface.
It is possible to repair instrument clusters after a base assessment involving quality parameters are checked. Their current condition, number of years in use, functioning of gauges, speedometers, digital readouts, and other parts are taken into consideration.
Yes, we provide comprehensive solutions that encompass both hardware and software aspects of instrument cluster development, such as tailored digital instrument cluster panels for cars. Our services cover cluster hardware design and cluster software design, ensuring a holistic approach to instrument cluster development.
Instrument clusters are powered by unswitched power supply circuit fuse boxes that are protected by fuse boxes.
The instrument cluster works as an entire unit in itself that warns the driver about sudden defects produced in the vehicle. This helps to avoid serious potential issues and take appropriate mitigation measures. It also provides automatic recovery from failure without any user intervention.
The electronic circuit unit collects sensory information and provides vehicular data to digital instrument clusters through Controller Area Network, Local Internet Network, and other communication channels within the vehicle. Such information is easily interpreted by the driver in a digital format.
Our instrument cluster solutions are versatile and can be tailored to suit a wide range of vehicles, from traditional cars to electric vehicles, trucks, and more. We can adapt our clusters to meet the unique requirements of different automotive applications.
The timeline for developing digital instrument cluster for cars can vary depending on the complexity of your project and specific requirements. We’ll work closely with you to establish a project timeline that meets your expectations and needs.
We understand that each client may have unique needs and preferences. We are dedicated to accommodating your specific customization requests and creating personalized instrument clusters that align with your distinct requirements, whether it’s regarding design, functionality, or features.
