It is based on the Android Automotive operating system and Spark’s EV technology which uses machine learning algorithms.
The car was designed by a consortium of British companies
A new generation of two-seater electric sports car called Aura has been unveiled by a group of UK companies including Astheimer, Potenza Technology, BAMD and Conjure which exploit Spark’s EV technology. The NVN-funded project is a showcase for next-generation HMI technologies that connect the driver to the vehicle and its surroundings to make range anxiety a thing of the past. The cars are currently on display at the CENEX Low Carbon Vehicle Show in Millbrook.
The Aura Concept is road-approved and takes advantage of the use of durable composite materials, new battery technology and drivetrain efficiency, as well as an aerodynamically optimized design. The vehicle has been designed around a unique, state-of-the-art human-machine interface that connects the driver to his environment.
It has a 10-inch touchscreen infotainment system and a 5-inch auto-lever circular display in the middle of the steering wheel which forms the heart of the user interface. It is based on the Android Automotive operating system and Spark’s EV technology which uses machine learning algorithms that monitor the weather, driving style and road conditions to provide an optimal ride ensuring the driver does not never run out of charge or have to wait for a charge for a long time.
The vehicle is also connected to the Aura cloud which allows the creation of a digital twin of the vehicle to be provided to the driver.
“We know that HMI systems have enormous potential to better connect the driver with the vehicle and its environment in the future. So far, many HMI programs, software, hardware, and user experience have been developed separately. We believe our approach of developing them as a component is a major stepping stone to the vehicles of the future, ”said Chris Tingley CTO of Conjure, who developed the HMI system.
“The AURA project has enabled leaders in their respective fields to work together to build a functional demonstrator to show the world how the industry can use the technology available today to help overcome these obstacles,” added Justin Ott, CEO and founder of Spark. VE technology.
