The GMC Hummer EV will have video game graphics in its entertainment system

The GMC Hummer EV will have video game graphics in its entertainment system.

The electric pickup will be the first vehicle to use Unreal Engine for its graphical interface.

The way we interact with our cars has changed dramatically in the last decade. Knobs and buttons have disappeared to make way for screens.

First, in the central part of the dash, then through the Head-Up Display and more recently in the instrument cluster. The screens took over the cars' interior, and the trend is that they continue to grow.

The arrival of sensors, cameras, and electrification in cars has been the spearhead in graphical interfaces' rapid evolution. And as autonomous driving develops, cars' interface will focus more on entertainment or work aspects, opening up gigantic development potential.

What's going on?

Epic Games announced that the GMC Hummer EV electric pickup will be the first vehicle to use Unreal Engine, a technological platform on which a large number of video games are created, such as Fortnite, Gears of War, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Dragon Ball FighterZ and a long, etc.

The initiative to create car software within Epic, using the Unreal Engine, is called HMI (Human Machine Interface).

What does it mean for us to use the Unreal Engine?
  • Developing on the Unreal Engine is faster, and designers could iterate the software without having to accommodate cars' product lifecycles, which are too long compared to software lifecycles.
  • Infotainment systems will be much faster since the Unreal Engine allows the software to be loaded sequentially, which means that portions of it that are not going to be used when starting the system can be loaded later.
  • Because Unreal Engine is designed to create realistic images by computer, it will be possible to display the car's renderings, components, and interiors with a graphic quality far superior to what is used today.
  • There is the potential that drivers can customize their vehicle graphics or personal assistant voice according to their favorite video game or character.

  • It will also be one of the first vehicles to hit the market using the new Ultium battery technology developed by General Motors, which promises higher density and shorter charging times.
  • It will be General Motors' answer to the Tesla Cybetruck and Rivian R1T
