Interactive HMI

CENTI, Portugal

The Interactive HMI by CENTI consists of a car central console focused on creating parts with surfaces of great fluidity and the interaction between the innovative control part, which integrates the key functional features of demo, and the car radio. The innovative control part has integrated the electronics components to activate the radio functions (on/off, audio volume control, map access, among others) exhibits aesthetical features, as piano black (deep black and high gloss effect) and night design effect (seamless integration of interactive and lighting systems). To increase the sensorial experience of user, the demo also includes decorative LED lighting.


  • Respond to the opportunities and challenges for the future of automotive industry
  • To create functional and aesthetical surfaces that can interact with the users and can be upscalable for industrial production, compatible with thermoforming and overinjection processes
  • Improve user experience by automotive HMI solutions
