Inspired by the 17 inch touchscreen of Tesla’s awesome Model S we designed an interface concept for a new generation of car infotainment systems. Based on Teslas current interface we designed a concept using responsive widgets that can be rearranged on a flexible grid. The widgets are available in multiple sizes and can freely be combined for a customized user experience while a color coding system makes it easier to quickly find the functions you’re looking for.
This is an early stage concept that was built within a few weeks as a side project. We are aware that it’s much harder to design a car interface under real life conditions with all the technical and budgetary restrictions of building a production car for the mass market. It would require much more work and real life testing to make this concept ready for market, but we believe in the general approach and will continue to refine it.
