CARAT Switch System is a completely unique and long-awaited product that makes it possible to link and operate the vehicle OEM display via a Standby CMP Controller, used to generate a blue light GUI (graphical user interface) while the CSDS (Center Stack Display Switch) device switches the associated video source to the screen, all in conjunction with MCS control units.
The CARAT Switch System is integrated with the vehicle infotainment display, which provides a clean and driver safe GUI, allowing discreet monitoring and control of vehicle and emergency services equipment.
The CSDS alone can also be utilised with other 3rd party solutions so developers will have more independence to apply their own integral GUI with the OEM screen.
Double tapping the dashboard home button switches to the external source view, which means that it is always easily accessible. The external source that generates the GUI is interfaced via HDMI.
The CARAT switch system was developed in conjunction with Volvo’s SPA platform and fits most 60 and 90 series from 2019, the new 40 series as well as Polestar.
