Design and More Design

After visiting and discussing with my brother and some industrial designers some refinements were made in regards to the interior as well in focusing in making the car more than means of transportation to creating an interface that is not only intuitive but also transforms the overall mood and changes the environment. Creating a car become a hotspot for not just interacting with media but also transport the user to a different environment.

I feel that the design in comparison to the one presented during midterm presentation in which I will like the screens to have a desktop and overall sense of nature for the organic or intuitive essence that I will like this interface to portray. Since the car is electric the battery life is important as well as music and while driving the wheel icon will lit up to indicate that is being use and therefore similar to these screens will be what will be display since in order to create a safe mode of transportation the only thing that will be accessible is the whatever the user determines his desktop to be.

After looking at these designs one the user logs in there will be a menu for him to interact with.

After looking at this design there are issues for instance the battery is too small and since it is an important information it should be accessible not in the center console but rather in the instrument cluster.

In the main frontal screen there will be these 6 essential information that the user can get more information if he chooses but he is not able to move it. These are the speedometer, charging, GPS (maps) , mirrors, and lights.

Yet, the center console will be a removal tablet that all passengers can interact with. It will be a little bit taller than an ipad. The design is more closely to the example shown (bottom).
