Panasonic has revealed an
exciting new concept that points the way to how the autonomous car will fit in
with the lives of regular consumers. Unveiled on January 6, 2017 at CES 2017 in
Las Vegas, US Panasonic took the wraps off its Autonomous Cabin Concept, a
world-first for the company, which boasts its next-generation infotainment and
connectivity expertise all wrapped up in a futuristic four-seater cabin full of
surprise and delight features.
Following on from Panasonic’s
Advanced Cockpit Concept, which was unveiled at last year’s CES, the Autonomous
Cabin Concept is a natural next step, boasting the very latest in touch
displays, smart materials and augmented reality to make travelling in the
autonomous car of the future as fun and as important to everyday life as a
smartphone is today.
The Autonomous Cabin Concept
shows how an autonomous car can be the ultimate in versatility, providing the
perfect extension to the workspace on the one hand, switching to the perfect
family zone on the other, through creative, innovative and informative
displays, connectivity and augmented reality.
Panasonic already supplies
many of the world’s biggest car companies and has done so for over 60 years.
The Autonomous Cabin Concept points the way to how Panasonic could support the
automotive industry in the future as mobility becomes increasingly autonomous.
Much of the technology that
features on the Autonomous Cabin Concept is already in advanced stages and
thanks to Panasonic’s in-house development expertise it is uniquely placed to
provide next-generation automotive grade technology to the industry.
