Lexus UX Concept offers 3D driving experience

NEW DELHI: Toyota Motor Corporation’s luxury division Lexus is going to reveal its new compact crossover concept vehicle, the UX Concept at the 2016 Paris Motor Show. Lexus has introduced 3-D Human Machine Interface (HMI) technology to the compact SUV.

The driver’s instrument binnacle houses a transparent globe, floating in the manner of a hologram, in which a combination of analogue and digital information express a functional yet unexpected user interface.

And the centre console features a prominent, facetted crystal structure within which a hologram-style display of air-conditioning and infotainment system is clearly visible to both driver and front passenger.

The latest advanced in-vehicle electrical technologies are also on display in the new UX Concept. It features electro-chromatic windows, and the door mirrors are replaced by e-mirror camera housings far slimmer than conventional mirror housing. All switchgear is electrostatic, and housed under transparent covers.

‘Our brief was to create a new genre of compact crossover; a vehicle that could create something unique from a customer’s point of view―an innovative, three-dimensional, fully immersive user experience,” said Stephan Rasmussen, Designer at European Design Centre, ED2.
