The first in vehicle instrument was the speedometer. Later, gauges like radiator temperature, fuel gauge, and revolution counter were added, and then came instrument clusters combining several instruments in one housing. When navigation systems came, a larger graphic display was needed, and this screen took place in the center console. Then, touch screens got popular through video games around 2005.
Parallel evolution, some years later, for interior surfaces, switch and controls. Touch skins are combining an overall sleeker design with all upcoming sensor integration technology to create a natural extension of touch screens in any interior surface.
The Design Lounge is addressing this trend from a design and material combination perspective; many of Interior News are reporting lectures from the recent Automotive Interiors Expo Virtual Live 2020, about technology transforming plastic surfaces into sensing/functional surfaces.
This edition in-depth is coming back on our Dec 2 DVN Lighting Online Workshop, where a special session covered Future Car Interior Lighting.
