Dublin–(business wire)–“Automotive Smart Surface Industry Research Report, 2022” report added of ResearchAndMarkets.com Recruitment.
As an important medium for multimodal interaction, smart surfaces are leading the smart cockpit trend.
Smart surfaces represent a development trend for automotive interiors and exteriors.
Smart surfaces are a key part of smart cockpits and represent the development trend of automotive interiors and exteriors as an important medium for multimodal interaction. In center consoles, steering wheels, doors, windows and other automotive interior parts, smart surfaces upgrade traditional interactive media such as buttons and knobs in traditional automotive interiors, and interactive media made of surface materials such as plastics and fabrics. touch the media.
Compared to traditional automotive interiors, smart surfaces are lighter, more intelligent and more functional.
- lightweight: Weight is reduced by 60% to 80%, thickness is reduced by 90%, PCBA area is reduced by 25% and component count is reduced by 95%.
- Intelligence: Integrating intelligent components such as electronic switches, lights, and sensors provide a medium for multimodal interaction.
- Functionality: With greater design freedom and greater functional integration, smart surfaces can offer drivers and passengers more functionality in a more convenient way.
A professional IME company and a Tier1 interior company are jointly promoting the development of automotive smart surfaces.
In-Mold Electronics is today’s leading smart surface technology with excellent bending and tensile properties, supporting 3D molding, no need for new molds, and more freedom in modeling design. In addition, eco-friendly and economical printed conductive inks his solution can meet the growing demand for model facelifts.
Currently, not many companies are focusing on automotive IME technology. Most companies consider consumer electronics or industrial electronics such as Tactotek, Canatu, Sekisui, Kurz, e2ip. At the same time, most automotive interior Tier1 companies are paying more and more attention to the application and development of smart surfaces. component.
Faurecia envisions the cockpit of the future as a multifunctional, connected and intelligent space. Smart His Surface, developed by Faurecia, leverages the group’s experience in many areas of expertise, including cockpit his architecture, system integration, kinematics and mechatronics.
The smart interior surfaces being developed by Yanfeng Automotive Interiors (YFAI) combine automotive interior aesthetics with HMI technology to seamlessly integrate control, information display, lighting and heating in the same surface. In February 2020, Yanfeng demonstrated the latest smart surface technology through a “smart surface model” that included seven of his HMIs and seamlessly integrated into various interior surfaces.
In March 2022, Yanfeng and SemsoTec signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on cooperation in display and sensor technology, components and products for automotive applications. The cooperation between the two companies aims to accelerate the seamless integration of his HMI into all interior surfaces of future vehicles, thereby providing a unique in-vehicle user experience.
Smart surfaces offer more possibilities for OEMs’ smart cockpit strategies.
A growing number of OEMs are applying smart surfaces to the smart cockpits of both luxury and entry-level vehicles. Touch center consoles, touch door control modules, and touch window control modules are very common, and even touch modules appear on the steering wheel.
Porsche’s new interactive interface design features an 8.4-inch tilting screen at the bottom of the center console that mainly displays power, charging status, climate control, handwriting pad, etc., with tactile feedback and error-proof operation. .
The Li L9 cancels the cluster in front of the driver and instead adds a small TouchBar above the steering wheel. The combination of 5-screen touch controls, 6 microphones, 3D ToF sensors, and multi-modal 3D interactive technology developed by Li Auto based on deep learning brings the audio-visual and entertainment experience of smart his car to a new level. increase.
To embody the sense of science and technology and simple design style, WM M7 not only gets rid of all physical buttons, but also creates a touch gearshift mode integrated into the steering wheel. WM’s “i-Surf Technology Skin” uses ultra-fine blend technology and feels like a wool blend. At the same time, it also has transparency. Combined with flexible screens, it supports custom text or images.
