Bose Automotive partners with carmakers around the world to create innovative audio solutions. We worked alongside Bose’s team to design and prototype these in-car capabilities for its partners.

From an on-screen design language that helps visualize advanced audio technology, to technical prototypes that demonstrate true, in-car functionality, our work with Bose Auto continues to re-envision the in-car experience.

Designing seamless listening experiences

To create a seamless listening experience at home and on the go, we extended Bose’s design and interaction language into the automotive environment.

We created a design system that prioritizes clean layouts, large touch targets, and high-contrast legibility to meet the needs of drivers while still maintaining the character of the Bose brand.

We collaborated with Bose’s  sound engineers to understand the nuances of its technology, creating a library of reusable, animated visualizations to capture more complex features, such as spatial audio and active noise cancellation.

Prototyping for unique needs

From click-through prototypes to validate user flows, to fully integrated Android Automotive applications running in test vehicles, our team develops full-scale prototypes demonstrating Bose’s next-generation audio experiences.

Working with Bose’s partners

Our prototypes are designed to meet a range of partner needs and constraints. We collaborate with Bose’s teams to understand their partners, working to build experiences that work across a range of in-car environments.

A partnership building the future of in-car experiences

We continue to explore new in-car experiences as the boundary between vehicle and living space is blurred. With the growing popularity of autonomous and connected vehicles, we’re exploring new forms of rich, in-car entertainment, including immersive audio and video experiences.
