The BMW Advanced Driving Concept is an agile, single seated roadster powered by hydrogen. The joy of driving, and the experience are in the foreground. To meet the demands of a modern society, the concept is embedded in an AI system and is obtaining hydrogen from a self sufficient, sustainable system. The BMW H2 Concept makes technology visible and understandable, actively integrates the user in all aspects of driving, and thus is able to create an emotional connection between driver and vehicle.
The dashboard consists of two main parts. The body, and the hovering steering/control unit. As soon as a user is connected with the car, Delphi the car and the users AR device start working together. This and the start up of the car is indicated by the steer-ing unit starting to hover above the dashboard. Furthermore, the companion starts to glow, which shows the current status of the car, and informations are displayed in AR.
The hovering control unit consists of a body part and the companion , and is the centre of the interior, and the whole car. It can be used in operation modes. In the first one, called the “Preparation” mode, the handles are fitted flush into the body, and not accessible to the driver. This mode is to make changes on the cars performance for example. The main mode however is the “Drive” mode. While driving, the colour of the companion is changing - indicating whether the driver is going to fast or still can push it a little more. Furthermore, the control unit is moving according to drivers gestures, as feedback and to indicate the movement of the car.
