Vehicle screens are only getting bigger. For a perfect example, take a look at the massive one-piece screen of the upcoming Caddilac Lyriq electric crossover. It is 33 inches (838.2 millimeters) long and 5 inches (127 mm) high. Electrek got this image of the massive infotainment system in an interview with Bill Thompson, the director of user interface design at General Motors.
The Lyriq’s user interface screen has three sections (see below), although it is only a single piece of curved glass. The leftmost area contains the lighting and head-up display controls. A digital instrument panel occupies the next area to the right, and then there’s a large infotainment screen. The system can also display a single unified image when the Caddilac is stopped or charging, depending on Electrekinterview with.
The pilot can control what is on the instrument section with a rotating dial. The other two sections are touch screens.
“We have integrated the user interface to allow the customer to choose how much electrification information they want to have at any time,” said Thompson. Electrek.
The Lyriq is able to recognize its driver when entering the vehicle. It then displays details of the trip, including a smart route that takes into account the remaining range. When using the Super Cruise driver assistance system, messages regarding its status appear on the screen.
The Lyriq will run on General Motors’ modular platform for electric vehicles. It will also pack the automaker’s new Ultium batteries which will support capacities from 50 kilowatt hours to 200 kWh.
Le Lyriq will make their full debut on August 6. Production will take place at the renovated Detroit-Hamtramck assembly plant after investing $ 2.2 billion to make the site a hub for the assembly of electric vehicles.
