Automotive Solution

Shorten the development cycle of In-Car UX

Create prototypes for multiple screens with connected hardware, such as clusters, HUD, steering wheels, and pedals.

Integrate your prototype with hardware to create and test immersive cockpit interactions.

Save time

Iterate quickly on car UI elements and test concepts early. Reduce the design and development cycle from 2 years to 3 months.

Show realistic experiences

Demos and user testing require realism. Convince stakeholders with tests that feel like a real driving experience.

All-in-one tool

Build, test, and handoff your prototypes to engineers using our prototyping software (ProtoPie Studio).

Test internally in the seating buck

Build test environments and configurations in the seating buck to run realistic prototypes - from low fidelity frames to high fidelity interior of cars.

  • 1. Multi-screen interactions

    Seamlessly have prototypes across multiple screens communicate with each other.

  • 2. Integrate with hardware

    Interact between the display and hardware - from the steering wheel to physical controllers.

  • 3. Voice interaction prototyping

    Use voice commands and speech recognition, such as turning on music.

Test scenarios with a data simulator

Simulate driving situations and receive data from outside the car, not coming live from an actual vehicle.

    4. Warning message appears on car display

Real-time data with OBD port

Receive car data such as tyre pressure, AC temperature, and fuel level via the OBD port. ProtoPie Connect allows the receiving and processing of real-time data.

"The ProtoPie products are awesome. With the addition of ProtoPie Connect, our designers are now able to experience their ideas in combination with our custom hardware and even bring their concepts into real cars within minutes. Such realistic experiences enable us to efficiently test, discuss and iterate on a global scale."

Jack Cong, Director of User Experience, Lucid Motors

"The automotive product really helped us solve our design simulation challenges. With ProtoPie's unique framework solution, we were able to simulate our pixel-perfect design into seating buck and share with stakeholders even before implementation. Not only was the product great, but also the technical support!"
