E-Car Sharing Concept for the year 2020Automotive HMI & Interactive Prototype eBee for Visteon
Visteon Corporation’s e-Bee vehicle concept envisions future mobility experiences in 2020. Focusing on a multi-purpose modular interior and anticipating a strong business trend towards integrated sharing scenarios, the e-Bee concept car is adapting to the users profile and customizing its interior, lightning, fragrance and interfaces according to the interchanging passengers.
While todays carsharing-companies mostly utilise standard consumer cars, the e-Bee is designed especially for sharing demands. It offers complete and immediate customization e.g. by symmetrical digital Cockpit-Controls that can easily adapt to regional habits, personal profiles and settings via butt-connection that facilitate comfort and acquaintance and by “physical apps” like storage-modules, cameras, holders and gadgets to utilise the car for individual tasks.
