With Natural Motion a driver can unlock the seat or the backrest simply by pushing a button. The user can easily slide the seat into position with his body, whilst remaining in the driving position. All HMIs are placed in the field of view when the driver enters the vehicle. A button on the seat’s back can fold it forward so one can enter the backseat of the car. The NM-x Demonstrator features smart height adjustment, memory function, backlighting for the switches as well as visual and acoustic feedback. The accessible and intuitive control concept offers high comfort and ergonomic solutions according to the driver’s individual needs.
The new usability concept enhances the ergonomics of manual seat adjustment. By placing controls within reach and field of view, all operations may be performed in natural driving position. This enables the driver to constantly maintain a correct posture. Novel position sensors inside the seat support real-time visualization of all adjustments on a display. Thus manual settings may be saved and recalled and ergonomically correct seating positions may be recommended.
