I plan on replacing the existing steering wheel with one that will support my IVI menu system. There are automotive suppliers who have developed a steering wheel that allows for a docked phone, however in my concept I would like to integrate that touch based experience directly to the wheel and make it purpose built for the IVI menu system only (static/unchanging for safety).
The key innovative concepts in my design are:
- DLP rear projected display for cluster and navigation which will allow for free-form dashboard designs and scalability for future technology
- Electric to fuel modes presented uniquely on screen
- Simplicity, form follows function design that makes the driving experience enjoyable yet safe
Lots more to come...
