This operating concept for the driver’s area of a car consists of a surface that can be applied seamlessly in the cockpit or grip zone. It features buttons, control icons and information for drivers, all of which is initially invisible and only begins to appear when the backlighting is switched on. The functional elements are situated beneath the surface and can be activated by touch and gesture control thanks to the capacitive sensor technology.

Statement by the Jury

This operating concept inspires as a smart surface and opens up numerous new possibilities for car designers in terms of interior design.
