Carmakers also focus on user interface
The new models of Cadillac focus on the so-called Cadillac user experience or CUE. Now Cadillac users can put away their phones or tablets, yet channel the devices’ capability and media into the car using an elegant and intuitive user experience. The CUE innovations are primarily focused on proximity sensing, natural voice recognition, haptic feedback and a unique capacitive touchscreen. Proximity sensing minimises the display when not in use. The haptic feedback gives users a pulsing sensation when they select menu items. The 8-inch capacitive touchscreen allows for swipe and pinching gestures to move and resize items on the main screen. The built-in 3D navigation includes turn-by-turn natural speech recognition and auto-fill location input. The CUE designer team has also opened up the Linux-based CUE platform to developers, to ensure that the CUE stays ahead of tech trends always.
