Driven by researching users and markets, the Smart ForTwo audio system, incorporates simple, intuitive control and an appealing layout matching the Smart interior.

IDC worked for Visteon to develop a number of car audio systems for a range of different vehicles. One of these projects was for the Smart ForTwo and required the development of a new CD radio system.

The first phase of the project involved IDC's team researching user needs and looking at similar products in the market, as well as the styling of the Smart car itself.

Concepts were developed which followed the simple layout of the Smart ForTwo. The team focused on developing the user interface structure and screen layout of the audio system, to accommodate Visteon's technology and audio functions.

The project resulted in a highly appealing audio system which perfectly suited the Smart ForTwo's stylish interior.

IDC has developed similar successful audio products for use in the LandRover Freelander, Ford Focus, Ford Fusion, Fiat Stilo, and the full range of Skoda cars.
