In this case, the lidar is placed above the windshield, which provides an increase in the radius of view. Side mirrors are replaced by compact video cameras, and instead of a rear-view mirror, a display is installed on which a picture is transmitted from a camera mounted in the back of Precept.

For control, a touch screen with a diagonal of 15 inches with a portrait orientation is used. However, an individual 12.5-inch screen is provided for the driver. Sensors track the direction of the driver’s gaze, and proximity sensors - the position of his fingers when working with the display, which provides fine adjustment of image parameters. When creating the interior, recycled materials were used.
