Audi is showcasing a wide array of new technology concepts at the ongoing CES 2016 show at Las Vegas, Nevada. In addition to having the e-Tron Quattro concept on display in a new dark blue shade, Audi’s CES stall this year showcases a new interior concept with latest HMI concept (Human Machine Interface) involving AMOLED displays with integrated haptic feedback.
The new interior tech is claimed to change the way customers interact with the vehicles and is described as a extension of the Virtual Cockpit concept into a Virtual Dashboard. Integral part of the new concept is the latest MMI Touch Response which recognizes familiar touch gestures used in the world of consumer electronics.
The system can seamlessly integrate smartphones and smart watches and works on the up-to-date MIB2+ infotainment platform. A whole range of new online services will be incorporated into the infotainment system.
Through its e-tron Quattro Concept, Audi highlighted its Piloted Driving (autonomous driving) technology. For fully autonomous driving, the on board navigation system needs a data base which is precise to the centimetre and for this purpose, Audi AG, BMW Group and Daimler AG acquired a highly up-to-date HERE cloud database. The live HERE data would allow the self-driving vehicle to have very accurate details of the route.
