“When you’re looking at the board you have to be looking down or to the side.” So the idea for a single high-resolution display was a collaboration between design, engineering, and user interface to fix this and make everything at eye level, so users aren’t looking everywhere in the cabin at looking for the information they need.

“With this new technology, there are two information panels in front of you.” The near plane projection shows information relevant to driving, such as speed and distance to maneuver, things necessary for the user to be aware of the conditions in front of him. In the furthest plane, what we have is… let’s say you are driving on the highway and you are following a navigation route. What this head up display will do is highlight and superimpose the route you must take on the road. So instead of just guiding you every time you need to turn, there will be a guide directly on the road to show you exactly which lane to go, when to maneuver.

—One of the coolest things about having a single pane of glass without interruptions is that, for example, things like the Super Cruise (driver assistance system) are complemented by infographics. And going back to our principle of humanizing mobility, we took on the task of reviewing the language we use to present the conditions to clients, so that it doesn’t seem so clinical or robotic, but rather that it feels more human, more digestible.

“We also mentioned the element of personalization. The Lyriq is integrating all that user experience. There is a whole new level of personalization that the customer can experience in terms of the type of information they want to see, where they want to see it, how much they want it to be visible. And what we discovered with our research is that in this segment there is a very wide variety of people, and some are addicted to information (so to speak) and want to dig into the details, and some just want to know how much is left to go. to their destination and if they have enough cargo to get there. It is an area that has undergone a total renovation in terms of the way we present vehicle-related information to the customer. “

“As we continue our journey to production, the answer is yes.” We continue with the iterative design. We continue to know the client’s needs. And as these evolve, we have the ability to make adjustments over time, as the time to start production approaches.
