BEZELS & CLUSTERS
FlexView Max is based on two 12,1” curved OLCD displays, perfectly integrated into cockpit design and offering ideal and intuitive user interactions.
This concepts reduces the driver distraction with
– a lower 12.1” OLCD display, touch sensitive and with HD haptic feedbacks for touch interactions
– an upper 12’OLCD display ideally positioned in the line of sight to get the right information (vehicle speed, range, real time rear vision…) needed for a safe and pleasant driving.
Touch’n Play is a tactile screen with integrated shortcuts to provide all users with easy and rapid access to their favourite applications. The driver is not distracted by its use.
Scroll’N Feel offers several tactile functions with a single smart button; the haptic touch is adapted to each function for an advanced user experience. This technology enables drivers to avoid taking their eyes off the road.
Squeeze Command replaces all door controls and buttons by an AI powered gesture recognition with haptic feedback. It makes it possible to add new functionalities without introducing new buttons.
FlexView Mirror is a 3D OLCD display beautifully integrated into the vehicle interior which replaces the lateral rear view mirrors. This innovation could be extended with augmented reality to highlight blind spots or pedestrians.
My FlexView is a personal tactile screen interface for each passenger. It provides access to a camera view of behind the car for safety, and various comfort information (ventilation, radio, air quality, etc.)
AIR VENTS & DECORATION TRIMS
Smart Breeze is an intelligent, slim and automatic air register, that is perfectly integrated into the interior and offers an improved comfort experience for all passengers. Directly accessible via FlexView Max, it does not require any manual adjustment and enables drivers to remain focused on the road. Light strips indicate the air flow direction.
