Reeking of the swagger and futurist zeal of the 1950’s auto shows, Chrysler rolls into the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas with not a full car, but the campy Synthesis Cockpit Demonstrator that allows show goers to experience the user high-tech interface of their future cars.

Based on the cockpit design and user experience of the Chrysler Airflow Concept car of last year’s CES show, the Synthesis Cockpit Demonstrator is a space-age looking piece of furniture that shows off a dash board with three screen interface showcasing how its connected features and displays will interact with drivers and passengers.

Calling it “Advanced Technology for Real Life”, the three cockpit displays of the Chrysler Synthesis Cockpit Demonstrator depend on three separate AI platforms called STLA Smart Cockpit, STLA Brain and STLA AutoDrive.

The trio of technologies all provide an immersive and connected driving experience that not only communicates driving metrics along the way, but can assist in daily life, entertain and offers full Level 3 autonomous driving.

A virtual personal assistant can integrate with personal calendars, schedule and provide route planning, recommend charging locations, and on the go communications. The system can offer full connection with multiple devices to synchronize with smart home functionality.

It can be just for fun too. There are Chill, Zen and Fun Modes that use sound and visuals to create an immersive sensory experience. These include programs for wellness and meditation, karaoke, and even games that can be engaged in when you are stopped or when the vehicle is driving autonomously.
Furthermore, the Synthesis Cockpit Demonstrator on display at CES features the Synthesis Music Experience that allows you to create and synthesize their own music. Cute.

Chrysler says the advanced AI systems can adapts to the drivers preferences over time, learning behaviors, routes and schedules. Over-the-air updates of software features and content enhancements are a given.

It’s all surrounded by an interior cockpit mock up with a design language called Harmony In Motion showcasing sustainable materials such as vegetable-tanned seats, recycled melange heather trims on the dash which is backed up with 100% post-industrial ocean plastics.

All of this gives us a glimpse into the Chrysler Airflow Concept car shown last year at CES 2022 – itself a showcase into the brand’s electric vehicle future as well as design language. Chrysler’s first full battery-electric vehicle is due 2025 and by 2028 the brand will be 100% electric in its offerings.
