The Human Machine Interface (HMI) concept merges the instrument cluster and center stack into one curved horizontal display, allowing a driver-oriented architecture.

On top of the instrument panel is a curved 21-inch 4K display made by LG. LG Advanced High Performance In-plane Switching technology allows for a greater viewing angle and richness in color, resulting in a more spacious ambience. The bowl-shaped Central Control Panel with 3D geometry is ergonomically optimized for usability and forms an electronic centerpiece of this unique HMI concept.

This ergonomic optimization allows for intuitive single- and multi-touch finger swipes, while also enabling handwriting recognition and circular finger movements—useful when scrolling through long music or telephone lists.

The user interface presents all relevant information at a glance, combining touchpads with the advantages of today’s rotary dial-based interfaces. Additionally, a 3D gesture-control sensor allows the operator to throw ove’ specific content from one area of the screen to another, raising the freedom for personalizing the display information.
