One of the main features on the Emirai 4 is the driver sensing system. A wide-angle interior camera monitors the driver and front seat passenger, detecting potentially dangerous driving behaviour based on their seat posture. It also provides a safe switchover between manual and autonomous driving modes. 

The concept features a range of driving assists such as human machine interface (HMI), which incorporates an augmented reality heads-up display with a 3D-mapped version of the road you are driving on. The purpose of this is to aid the driver in conditions where poor visibility arises.

A knob-on display is also features. working in tandem with the HUD. At the flick of a knob, the driver can operate various functions without taking their eyes off the road.
