4th Automotive Cockpit HMI 2013
Customer Expectation and Experience - HMI Development Process - Driver distraction - Concepts and Systems - Truck HMI
The way drivers interact with their cars is evolving, driven by changes in a number of related domains – personal mobile devices, car technology, consumer electronics, demography and economics.
Therefore the ultimate challenge for HMI experts is the creation of an interface that is both engaging, functional and easy to reach and use. This has become even more important in the automotive cockpit, where the number of instruments and functions directly accessible to the driver has kept rising steadily over the years.
As the area visible to the driver is limited, ergonomic aspects as well as technical restrictions continue to make this both intuitive and appealing design of HMI a challenging task - especially as the increasing entrainment of portable devices makes for even more functions to compete with the classic embedded equipment of a vehicle.
With all this information availably, driver distraction is of course a major concern. Therefore, the development and implementation of future driver assistance systems remain a central endeavour.
The main task at the moment is: to mitigate driver distraction and deliver the advanced UI connectivity features expected by customers.
This event will draw together extensive experience from industry professionals and encourage the exchange of knowledge, and promote dialogue in an interactive networking surrounding.
Learn how a smart HMI development will help to integrate and deploy next-generation user interfaces and content in both standard and non-standard environments to fullfil consumers' fast-changing needs
Get to know solutions on how new control concepts such as touch screens, touch pads, rotary knobs, voice recognition can ideally be integrated in the cockpit with a cost efficient approach
Learn how aging of drivers in mature markets changes automotive HMI in order to built on simple and intuitive concepts, suitable for older drivers: speech commands and alerts, voice biometrics, gesture recognition
Hear about solutions on latest research results and implementation experiences with control concepts to decide how the driver can best access all necessary data without risking driver distraction
Understand Customer Expectation and Experience to overcome challenges when it comes to designing for world markets and to design for the future
Assess requirements of HMI in electric vehicles and for automated driving to be able to create a coherent concept for the vehicle of the future
Find out about the latest developments on “Truck HMI” to learn how to best break down all necessary information between cluster location, centre stack, head-up display and rear-view mirror in order to display more data yet make the presentation appear less complex
