The possible uses of game technology and virtual reality applications are manifold in the automotive sector. The BMW Group, the first automotive company together with Epic Games to define and structure an enterprise licence for the industrial use of Unreal Engine, designed a self-developed mixed reality system. This is consistently used and expanded in vehicle development. The BMW iX is the first car that has been developed using the game engine we modified for our purposes. BMW’s use of Unreal Engine is invaluable, especially in the strategic innovation fields. You can very quickly create 3D renderings, for example, that take account of light effects and light reflections on different materials, among other things. But most importantly, it allows the functional and user experience to be brought to life and implemented in real time at a very early development stage. These advantages led to the early development of the technology into a global platform.
The new Hyundai TUCSON N Line - The exterior design
The TUCSON N Line combines the TUCSON's exceptionally dynamic design, high level of comfort and advanced connectivity with the motorsport-inspired design that characterizes all of Hyundai's N and N Line models. Like the other trim levels of the new TUCSON, the TUCSON N Line stands out with its progressive design that combines sharply drawn lines, angles and finely crafted surfaces. The unique "Parametric Hidden Lights" blend seamlessly into this composition: When the ignition is switched off, the novel front end with its many parametric surfaces appears elegant and as if cast from a single mold. Only when the vehicle is started do the hidden, partially mirrored LED daytime running lights become visible. The muscular appearance of the TUCSON is based on Hyundai's new "Sensuous Sportiness" design philosophy, which is further emphasized in the N Line by refined, sporty details. Like the regular TUCSON, the N Line trim highlights prominent geometric elements - the "Parametric Jewels." They give the new Hyundai SUV its fundamentally dynamic character. In addition, the proportions of the emphatically wide and flat car emphasize its sporty appearance.
