SHAPE


here is an ongoing evolution in automotive interiors where physical dials and switches are being replaced by displays


and touch icons. The current solutions are 2D tablet-like displays that require a lot of focus when operating. However, there is a new nanomaterial available from Canatu, carbon nanobuds (CNBs), that enables 3D-shaped, smart touch surfaces. 3D shapes help users to find controls without looking and are tactile and can be found by fingers, which decreases driver distraction. Instead of 2D displays, the new kind of enhanced HMI design enables a 3D-shaped user

Carbon nanobuds offer vehicle interior designers new opportunities to take advantage of 3D-shaped smart surfaces with physical haptic technology, as Canatu’s CEO, Juha Kokkonen, explains


interface, making the interior fully functional. Due to the fact that there are no


restrictions on the placement or form of functions, engineers can enjoy design freedom and create sleek interiors where controls are integrated seamlessly with the rest of the interior. Smart surfaces can flow from door panel to information panel, across centre consoles, or sweep the full width of the cockpit even up to the roof switches. This enables a living- room like space creation that will be dominant in the future of autonomous driving. A multipurpose interface,
