as part of a personal study I ‘ve driven few premium cars and this is my top 10 on climate controls interfaces
the task? change temperature from 17 to 23 degrees.
I am a big supporter of infotainment displays, but when it comes to HVAC control nothing beats a good rotary switch (apart from Volvo, perhaps)
do you think the interfaces are getting better? how the elimination of physical controls affects user experience?
I am working on an in-depth analysis of how the lower position of HVAC controls affects driver distraction, drop me a note if you are interested.
