The MMI operating concept
With the integrated user interface MMI, Audi offers an infotainment platform and user concept for the A8 that keeps operation simple thanks to its systematic logic. MMI in the first instance comprises the control panel (MMI terminal) in the centre console with a control button that can be turned and pressed, and four control keys grouped around it.
On either side of the terminal – apart from the Return key for exiting the menu level – there are a total of eight function keys with which the user can call up the most important main menus directly. The second central component of the MMI, a 7-inch colour monitor which can be retracted into the instrument panel, is positioned above the centre console in the instrument panel and therefore at an optimum angle of view for the driver.
The basic geometry of the monitor display corresponds in detail to the layout of the control keys and button in the MMI terminal. There is thus an intuitive link between visual perception and hand movements.
