Gone are the days of pesky dials in your car. Well, for Volvo fans at least. The motorcar manufacturer’s take on a “human machine interface” will be unveiled at next week’s Geneva Motor Show. Don’t be fooled by the very cool name, it looks very much like a tablet embedded into the vehicle’s dashboard.
According to Volvo, their “human machine interface” will reduce distractions, as typical controls will still be where you would expect them to be. So using them while driving won’t cause a pile-up, unless you’re also updating Facebook at the same time. Users will be able to switch between functions by touching tiles onscreen which will enlarge to make their sub-options useable.
According to Volvo, the
human machine interface tablet-seeming addition will arrive in its XC90 crossover SUV later this year.
