As intelligent cabins are incorporated in more and more high-end vehicles, human-machine interface (HMI) design is becoming one of the key criteria for judging the intelligence of cabins. Kanzi One as a groundbreaking human-machine interface (HMI) tool chain, provides a new smart cockpit experience for BYD Group’s high-end brand, the YANGWANG first model U8.
Since its appearance at the Shanghai Auto Show, the BYD YANGWANG U8 impressed people everywhere with its luxurious cabin and world-class intelligent technology. In particular, the innovative 12.8-inch starry sky curved screen in the intelligent cabin breaks the limitations of traditional straight screen designs and creates an unprecedented integrated and borderless cabin atmosphere. Additionally, the YANGWANG U8 features a five-screen linkage function that enables sharing of content like movies and navigation between family members and friends in the front and back rows, enhancing the whole driving experience.
As intelligent cabins are incorporated in more and more high-end vehicles, human-machine interface (HMI) design is becoming one of the key criteria for judging the intelligence of cabins and a key factor affecting user experience. However, complex interfaces and operation processes, along with cumbersome information retrieval and driving mode switching, and complex tasks like charging management have long plagued drivers and passengers, . Consequently, manufacturers are putting ever more effort to improving these factors and many others during product design.
The 3D ADAS human-computer interaction interface of the YANGWANG U8 cluster is based on the pioneering HMI development tool, Kanzi One, breaking through the constraints of traditional vehicle human-computer interaction. It enables the U8 to presents users with a simple and easy-to-use cluster interaction interface with clear information logic, allowing them to easily obtain key information required for safety, comfort and more.
Another highlight of the YANGWANG U8’s intelligent cabin is its rich selection of driving modes. Drivers can freely switch between racing, snowy, mountain, mud and wading modes according to different driving conditions and preferences. The human-machine interaction system enabled by Kanzi One makes this switching more flexible for users, and the interface is much more vivid, three-dimensional, and full of personalized design.
In addition, Kanzi One empowers the development and advanced rendering which have been achieved for the Cluster (includes ADAS, etc), Car Setting (air conditioning), 3D desktop and driving modes, and more creating a visually delightful, intuitive, and highly interactive interface. This excellent user experience delivers driver satisfaction and improves the overall driving experience.
Kanzi One, the world’s first fully compatible HMI development tool with the Android operating systems, offers industry-leading 3D graphics rendering technology, enabling automakers to create cutting-edge user interfaces and build advanced intelligent car cockpits. Particularly noteworthy is that Kanzi One can fully meet the needs of the entire HMI development process from concept design to prototype design to in-vehicle user experience verification. Currently, more than 30 million vehicles around the world are equipped with Kanzi technology.
