    Facts summary: Porsche Mission E's smart dashboard

  • 1 A cluster of 5 virtual round instruments

    Porsche Mission E's instrument board shows 5 round instruments that are virtually displayed with organic light-emitting diodes (OLED) technology.

  • 2 The instruments are organized according to the driver's theme

    The dashboard instruments are organized depending on the driver's theme of Connected Car, Performance, Drive, Energy and Sport Chrono.

  • 3 The dashboard 'knows' which instrument the driver is looking at

    An eye-tracking system uses a camera to find out which instrument the driver is looking at at the moment.

  • 4 Steering wheel buttons activate instrument's menu

    After the eye tracking system identifies the selected instrument, the driver then activates its menu with a button on the steering wheel.

  • 5 Dashboard synchronizes with the driver via 'parallax effect'

    The dashboard's display follows the seat position and driver's body posture in what is known as a parallax effect. No matter how the driver sits at the moment, the 3D display of the round instruments always reacts and moves with him. 

  • 6 Dashboard instrument's are always viewable to the driver

    The adjusted dashboard eliminates situations where the steering wheel blocks the view of certain key information. All relevant information, such as vehicle speed is always within the driver's line of sight.

  • 7 It can portray 'driving fun factor'

    Mission E can also portray 'driving fun factor'. A camera on the rear-view mirror identifies the driver's good mood and shows it as an emoticon in the round instrument.

  • 8 The driving fun factor can be shared with friends

    The driving fun factor can be shared with friends on social media. It can be bundled together with other info such as the route or speed.

  • 9 It also has a holographic display

    While the upper layer has the driver's display, there is also a holographic display that extends far into the passenger's side.

  • 10 The holographic display is used for apps

    The hologram stores selectable apps. They are stacked in virtual space and arranged by priority with a 3D effect. 

  • 11 The hologram apps can be used by both the driver and the passenger

    The driver or the passenger can use the apps. They can control functions of media, navigation, climate control, contacts and vehicle.

  • 12 Gestures indicate actions for holographic apps

    The desired app is activated by gestures that are detected by sensors. A grasping gesture is for the select action, while pulling is for the control action.
