The design of reliable HMI systems is critical for people’s safety and AV industry growth
Despite all the challenges, tech innovators and automotive companies are all agog over self-driving cars becoming a daily reality. No wonder, since according to recent research by Strategy Analytics, the autonomous vehicle industry will be worth $7 trillion by 2050. This means that automakers have golden reasons to pursue R&D for all systems required for autonomous vehicles. HMI systems are one critical component.
HMI systems are widely used in car apps to transmit vast amounts of internal and external information. Particularly in autonomous vehicles, HMI platforms are used for car-to-car communication. On top of that, an HMI is part of an advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) and helps automakers ensure a wide range of ADAS-related services. So what are the human machine interface design principles automakers and OEMs should apply while developing autonomous vehicle concepts? Let’s find out.
