It’s an area in which conventional display and operating systems are rapidly reaching their limits.
Entirely new cockpit designs are also needed for automated driving to succeed if drivers wish to be relaxed and entertained in equal measure in their new environments. Knowledge of this automotive future is essential for keeping up with the times in delivering developments.
