Collins Aerospace says its Venue Cabin Management System (CMS) had “a little work done”, with the facelift including an improved graphical user interface (GUI), which is now available for aftermarket installations. The upgraded GUI simplifies cabin controls and now has the same look on the cabin’s touch panels and the system’s mobile device app. The GUI also offers a more intuitive experience, with more icons, less text, and fewer touches required to accomplish most tasks.
“With this user interface update, the system is now able to match the look and feel of rapidly evolving consumer technology which is what we know our customers want,” said Steve Adolphs, senior director of aftermarket & cabin programmes for business & regional avionics at Collins Aerospace.
Collins plans to roll the new GUI to VIP cabin installations later this year, and also make it available as an upgrade for the more than 1,500 systems already in service on board aircraft.
