BMW Vision M Next HMI Details

The BMW Vision M NEXT is a prototype showcasing BMW’s future experience concepts “EASE” and “BOOST” modes.

EASE – is BMW groups autonomous mode. Here, the vehicle is transformed into a living space on four wheels.

BOOST - shows the way ahead for BMW’s fabled driver focus where the cabin’s geometry and technology have both been devised to help focus attention on the task of driving and prevent distractions.

The driver cockpit named the BOOST pod and is arranged with three distinct visual tiers in the driver’s field of vision:

  • The first plane is a horizontally arranged steering wheel featuring two small digital displays.
  • The second is a curved glass OLED display, a new addition whose transparent surface stretches around the steering wheel like a visor.
  • The third is a full-surface Augmented Reality Head-Up Display in the windscreen.

This layout ensures everything happens directly in the driver’s line of sight. The driving settings can be modified on the steering wheel, while information such as revs, road speed, energy management, the driver’s heart rate and availability of BOOST+ mode is spread among a total of five clusters in the Curved Glass Display behind. BOOST+ mode can be engaged at the touch of a button to release extra power. The car alerts the driver when the ideal moment arrives to activate BOOST+.

The information displayed on the digital interface is adapted to the current speed – based on the principles of focus logic. As the vehicle speeds up, the information centres increasingly on driving-related data and moves into the driver’s eye-line. It is possible to communicate with the Intelligent Personal Assistant at all times while driving.

In addition to this facial recognition technology allows the car to unlock automatically as the driver approaches.
