What is instrument cluster?- Everything You Need to Know!
Automotive instrument cluster is an information system for the driver that provides information about speed of vehicle, amount of fuel available and traffic condition among others. The system consists of speedometer, fuel gauge, illumination and warning indicators and pointers. These instrument clusters have become the primary product differentiator for automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).
Rising demand by OEMs to present their customers with high quality instrument cluster to differentiate their products is expected to increase the demand for instrument clusters. Similarly, rising demand by OEMs to replace electromechanical instrumental clusters by electronic instrument clusters with 2D and 3D graphics are increasing the demand for instrument clusters. The number of smartphone and tablet PC users are increasing day by day with increasing population across the world. OEMs are trying to integrate these electronic devices with instrument clusters to make automotive instrument clusters more personalized. This is anticipated to further increase the demand for high quality automotive instrument clusters.
