The next big thing in automotive interiors will be aesthetic surfaces that can double as functional controls, says Nathan Bowen at Yanfeng Automotive Interior Systems Co. Ltd. (YFAI).

Bowen notes that self-driving cars will usher in an era in which controls for audio, video and other functions don’t need to be relegated to the instrument panel. YFAI’s “smart” surface technology enables designers to incorporate advanced switches, displays and other user interfaces behind a wide variety of materials.
