The automotive industry is undergoing a massive change. This traditionally slow-moving industry is pushed towards innovative products with significantly shorter development cycles than in the past. The main driving forces of this change are the latest emerging technologies, such as e-mobility and connectivity.
As a result, automotive interior designers and companies are eager to follow this trend and they are striving to give a facelift to the outdated interior of modern vehicles. The trend is to replace gauges with screens, and mechanical sliders and buttons with touch sensors (even combining the two into touch screens).
