Instrument cluster houses the various displays and indicators that enable a driver to operate the vehicle. Among these are several gauges – often a speedometer, odometer, tachometer, oil pressure gauge, fuel gauge, Hydraulics data and Service repair etc. – as well as various indicators for system malfunctions and warnings. Instrument clusters provide drivers with a centralized and easily viewable location for displaying all critical system information.
OEM’s are shifting to digital instrument cluster making possible to present a wide variety of information to the driver that is adapted dynamically to suit the current operating situation.
The digital cluster is ideal for a wide range of possible application scenarios, including conventional tachometer displays, function displays, route planning graphics, or displaying video from a rear-view camera, the driver is always shown exactly the right information when needed.
That ensures less distraction and helps reduce the accidents while operations. The information will be very easy to read in all situations and less prone to errors.
Instrument cluster offered by OEM’s are highly customizable as single machinery is used for different type of operations. Coming to the hydraulics, operator can pre-set the hydraulic flow and pressure through in-cab monitor. Some features like Load assist, Co-pilot assist, Live location and camera mounted on Vehicle exterior attract customers for managing their fleet.
But currently customers want more than the basics these days, like insight into machine figures in their total fleet management, and construction companies are responding to use the equipment as effectively as possible. As a feedback OEM’s can make improvements in their upcoming fleet.
Global construction equipment Instrument cluster market is estimated with $XX Million currently, growing at XX% CAGR till 2030.
