Audi Skysphere HMI Details

Developed by the Audi Design Loft in Malibu the Skysphere is capable of level 5 autonomy - meaning it doesn’t require human attention and in most cases completely free from a steering wheel or pedals.

The Skysphere has two driving modes:

  • Sports mode – The interior has two large touchscreens spanning from pillar to pillar. The one on the driver’s side is closer making it easier to reach when driving while the smaller screen on the passenger side sits deeper within the dashboard, creating a sense of separation between the two passengers.
  • Grand touring mode – Activate this mode and in under a minute the car is transformed. The screen on the driver’s side retracts to the same level as its smaller sibling taking the centre console with it creating one long uninterrupted display. As the steering wheel folds down and disappears under the dashboard, the pedals retract within the floor panel. In addition the suspension raises by 10mm and the wheelbase extends by 250mm. The car become fully autonomous and the occupants are chauffeured around in modern luxury.

Still conceptual the UI is very clean and minimal matching the aesthetic of the interior. The wide digital display which makes up the dashboard gives the impression of one uniterupted screen spanning the full width of the car (although this is actually two displays) which is accompanied by two large touchscreens on the armrests.
