High-lighting operating controls
A characteristic trait of QUANT sports car prototypes is the attention to detail when developing the overall concept for such a futuristic electric sports car. The operating controls in the QUANT 48VOLT are made from real wood. Thanks to hidden sensor functions, they light up as soon as the car is started.
The new sensorFLOW® technology creates a visual highlight, one which has never been seen before in this form for car operating controls. At first, only the clean, smooth surface of the natural ash wood can be seen – pleasing to the touch but without apparent functionality. Once the vehicle’s electrical system is switched on, the controls in the form of capacitive switches become clearly visible through the wood.
The wood veneer is so thin that lightly touching the sensorFLOW® icons is all it takes to trigger the corresponding function. This innovation brings together the inimitable feel of real wood and the fully digital operating system with a touch of a finger.
