Global and China Automotive Smart Cockpit Design Trends Report 2023: The Design Trend of Deep Integration Between IVI and Terminal Devices Such as Mobile Phones

Dublin, Feb. 27, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Automotive Smart Cockpit Design Trend Report, 2023" report has been added to's offering.

As the most intuitive window to experience automotive intelligent technology, intelligent cockpit is steadily moving towards the deep end of "intelligence", and automakers have worked to deploy intelligent cockpit functions they regard as the differentiated selling points of their vehicle models.

In 2023, OEMs released a number of innovative concept models and new models for sale, especially models of emerging brands such as Xpeng, ZEEKR, Galaxy, LUXEED, NEVO, Avatr and Jiyue. New technologies, new scenarios and new modes including diversified displays, new UIs, comfortable intelligent seats, panoramic sound effects, ambient lights, and intelligent surfaces spring up.

Based on visual design upgrade, exploration of UI gets deeper in terms of 3D HMI and custom settings.

As automotive display technology continues to mature, automotive human-machine interfaces (HMI) are being upgraded, and elements such as zero-level interaction, card-style design and flatness have been widely used. With the enrichment of smart car functions and contents, the future interface interaction is becoming more concise, 3D intuitive, and personalized.

As 3D HMI penetrates into the automotive field, the application of 3D HMI is no longer limited to 3D virtual assistants and 3D car models, and it finds broader application in 3D AR-HUD, 3D map navigation and driving assistance scenarios, seamless 3D scene functional transition (one shot), and 3D immersive scene space.

3D HMI solutions gradually penetrate from some functions to the system desktop and even the all-scenario function solution design. The intuitive and three-dimensional interactive experience not only improves the convenience and safety of the driver's operation, but also provides high-quality entertainment experiences.

In 2023, Flyme Auto, an IVI system jointly built by Meizu and Geely, was equipped with a 3D car model desktop. It can realize seamless transition between different scenes, break through the application boundary, reduce the sense of separation between the desktop and the application, present the environmental elements outside the car in real time and live, and provide common settings according to different scenarios, thus enhancing user experiences from vision to interaction to comprehensive live functions.

Based on 3D engine rendering, the desktop of Flyme Auto is designed with 'Ruran Engine', which shows the passage of 24 hours a day through real-time rendering and integrates the weather system into it, so that users can immediately feel the unbounded experience of breaking the boundaries between digital world and reality. In addition, its air conditioning and charging interfaces are designed with 3D particle dynamic effects to enhance the emotional value of the product, which is vivid.

To meet personalized needs, the IVI UI also keeps expanding. At present, multiple models offer customizable options in IVI UI settings, evolving from originally a few customizable options to the personalized settings that are customizable on multiple function pages.

In October 2023, Xpeng released Xpeng X9, its first MPV equipped with a new smart cockpit XOS and a multi-task architecture which supports independent operation of multiple tasks. The new XDock supports custom editing, places frequently-used functions required in different seasons/scenarios in the Dock bar to achieve zero-level interaction between commonly used functions.

In 2023, the IVI desktop of Lynk & Co 09 equipped with LYNK OS N features super customization. Users can define desktop cards, first-level menus of vehicle settings, vehicle control pages and Dock bar cards as they like.

In addition, the IVI UI has begun to resemble that UI of mobile phones and tablet PCs. For example, split screen is used in multiple models, reducing user learning costs and improving user experience.

The design trend of deep integration between IVI and terminal devices such as mobile phones

In recent years, in order to improve the user experience, the deep integration between mobile phones and IVI has become one of the inevitable development trends. In the era of electric intelligence, the deep integration between the automotive industry and the consumer electronics industry is conducive to realizing the close interaction between IVI and mobile phone software technology, promoting the construction of cross-border user ecosystems, and truly providing users with more convenient and intelligent experiences.

In November 2023, Chery and Huawei released their cooperative model LUXEED S7 whose cockpit is equipped with Huawei's new HarmonyOS 4.0. This intelligent cockpit brings a more powerful super desktop, and supports more applications to land on the car and call each other, greatly expanding its application scenarios.

Based on HarmonyOS 4.0, the intelligent cockpit of LUXEED S7 not only enables the most common entertainment connection, but also makes audio and video calls with Huawei mobile phones, tablet PCs, etc. It also supports the rapid transmission of navigation and entertainment information between devices, and easily controls a number of connected devices at home through comprehensive car-home interconnection capabilities, becoming a truly brand-new mobile smart device besides mobile phones and tablet PCs.

In October 2023, Xiaomi released the Xiaomi HyperOS, which aims to create a people-centric 'ecological' operating system covering humans, cars and homes. Also Xiaomi has developed Xiaomi HyperConnect to make devices connect efficiently and cooperate excellently. With HyperOS, devices can be networked dynamically in real time.

Xiaomi HyperConnect connects the entire Xiaomi HyperOS ecosystem. Each device is like a tentacle that perceives the world, and they are connected together to form a huge network to ultimately forge a smart world of 'human-car-home ecosystem'. Users can see the devices in the control center, make the devices cooperate with each other without connection, and call the hardware capabilities of other devices in real time. For example, the menu in the upper right corner of the Xiaomi mobile phone has a separate control module designed for the car.

The Xiaomi mobile phone can connect to Car WiFi. When the car owner is about to arrive home, his/her family can check the specific arrival information via the Xiaomi TV. The car owner can turn on the in-car camera and make video calls with his/her mobile phone. Xiaomi HyperOS features clear picture quality and extremely low latency, and also supports users to copy text, pictures, files, etc. across devices.

In the future, smart car user experience design will be further integrated with other platforms and devices. Users can seamlessly connect smart phones, smart homes and other devices with smart cars to achieve cross-platform integrated control and interaction. This design trend can provide more consistent and convenient user experiences. The integration of cross-terminal devices allows for the layout of home-car-office integration and other integrated scenarios.
