The vehicle interior of tomorrow is increasingly becoming the second living room, influenced by the megatrends of electromobility and autonomous driving. Individual design, maximum functionality and intuitive operation ensure a fantastic experience. This demand can only be fulfilled with innovative processes and solutions that are combined efficiently and economically. The KURZ Group and Swarovski Mobility have succeeded in doing so.
The competencies of the solution partners complement each other perfectly: design and decoration technology from BURG DESIGN, highly transparent sensor technology from KURZ subsidiary PolyIC and handmade touch-capable crystals from Swarovski unite in the award-winning Smart Crystal Panel.
The PMD process has resulted in a component that brings glamour into the interior through various variants with color-coordinated crystals. Handmade Swarovski crystals inspire with depth effect and reflections. In addition, the feel of crystal is only familiar to a few, which makes this material even more exciting.
Backlighting and holographic effects through printed pictograms visually enhance the cockpit. The special feature of the HMI panel, however, is the touch functionality of the crystals through integrated PolyTC® sensors.
In addition, the design freedom is limitless: day-night design, various light and color effects, sustainable metallization based on indium and real carbon looks are just a few of the countless design variations.
