Volvo has released a new round of videos that provide a look at the 2015 Volvo XC90’s in-car driving experience. Volvo says that the new XC90 has the “most modern in-car control system on the market.”
The XC90’s new interior will also be easier for driver’s to use with the deletion of buttons on the dashboard and new integrated cloud-based applications for music streaming and other services, such as the world’s first integrated Park and Pay application, and the ability to mirror and use Apple iOS devices in the touch screen display.
“As cars increasingly become more connected to the Internet and are able to offer a far wider range of functions and entertainment services, the way in which the driver interacts with the car’s systems is becoming progressively more important. It is essential that these services are offered in a way that does not reduce safety levels and in a manner that is easy to understand and optimized for the driving task,” said Dr Thomas M. Müller, Vice President Electrics/Electronics & E-propulsion engineering of Volvo Car Group.
Volvo’s new interface, part of ‘Sensus’, incorporates the latest touch screen hardware and software to allow drivers to build an instinctive understanding of how the system works, where the controls are located and how to operate them. The touchscreen replaces traditional buttons and controls on the center stack and a second screen in front of the driver projects vital information on a head-up display.
Sensus also includes a broad selection of cloud-based applications. The selection of cloud-based services, includes Internet radio, connected navigation, finding and paying for parking, discovering new restaurants at the destination and seamless streaming of music.
