To complement the interior’s superior levels of personalized comfort, the Audi grandsphere* boasts digital amenities that ensure time on board can be spent in a highly efficient or relaxing way. Even before passengers take their seats, the Audi grandsphere* uses gait recognition to identify the occupants and welcomes them with personalized displays and ambient light. Each occupant’s seat position and various other unique comfort features are automatically set and activated.
Thanks to dedicated Audi services and integrated digital ones, everyday tasks aside from driving are handled in the background. With information about their current destination already programmed in, for instance, the automated* Audi grandsphere concept* picks up its passengers and independently handles parking and recharging. In similar style, the infotainment system accesses passengers’ most recently used services — e.g. on a connected smartphone — and smoothly resumes them inside the car.
What’s more, existing connections to music and video providers are seamlessly imported from a mobile to the newly designed experience device. If, say, the passengers were streaming a video on a tablet before getting into the car, this automatically continues playing on the right-hand display surface in the Audi grandsphere*. The projection surface on the driver’s side likewise displays the messages the person was reading before getting in. By increasingly combining individuals’ lifestyles with mobility, Audi is defining tomorrow’s progressive luxury. Part of that is a complete absence from the Audi grandsphere* of both screens and traditional round instruments. Instead, occupants can enjoy the calming influence of minimalist wooden surfaces that surround them. As a result, doing a digital detox while traveling in a highly digitalized vehicle is by no means a contradiction in terms.
