Automotive HMI design: How AI can save the identity of car brands

Automotive HMI design: How AI can save the identity of car brands Distinct design has always been at the heart of the car’s appeal. Buying a car is not a rational undertaking – the emotional pull of a car brand is often a key factor in a customer’s buying decision. So, it’s natural that car manufacturers have always spent a lot of effort on creating a distinct design and user experience (UX) that separates their cars from others. And they have largely succeeded: car brands transport certain images, and they have done so for a long... [Lire la suite]

How can humans understand their automated cars? HMI principles, problems and solutions

How can humans understand their automated cars? HMI principles, problems and solutions As long as vehicles do not provide full automation, the design and function of the Human Machine Interface (HMI) is crucial for ensuring that the human “driver” and the vehicle-based automated systems collaborate in a safe manner. When the driver is decoupled from active control, the design of the HMI becomes even more critical. Without mutual understanding, the two agents (human and vehicle) will fail to accurately comprehend each other’s... [Lire la suite]

Positioning of HMI (Human Machine Interface) in ADAS development

Positioning of HMI (Human Machine Interface) in ADAS development In ADAS (Advanced DrivervAssistance Systems), human and in-vehicle systems jointly drive cars. Therefore people and cars need to form a smooth communication. Therefore, in designing and developing ADAS, the concept of HMI (Human Machine Interface) is important. HMI is a protocol that human beings and machines communicate intention and information. 1.HMI determines the difference between ADAS and Autonomous Driving ADAS is a support system for human...

Developing HMI Systems to Integrate ADAS Functions

Developing HMI Systems to Integrate ADAS Functions The reality of fully autonomous vehicles is drawing ever closer, and increasingly sophisticated driver assistance technologies are permeating the industry. Today’s ‘semi-autonomous’ cars feature a range of support functions such as lane assist and automatic braking, and the sector has become a hotbed of innovation as OEMs scramble to be the first to market with new technology. Equally, infotainment and connected services have also been subject to rapid development, with connectivity... [Lire la suite]

Looking ahead: Designing for in-car HMI

Looking ahead: Designing for in-car HMI Hard and soft interactions Before we discuss our thoughts on the best approach for in-car interactions, we will touch upon the types of interactions that exist in the in-car environment. In-car interactions can be split into two distinct types: hard and soft. Hard interactions can be defined as deliberate manipulative actions performed by the driver. Examples are: changing the drive position using a button, using an infotainment system via a GUI or inputting location data into the... [Lire la suite]

HMI FOR ELDERLY AND DISABLED DRIVERS TO GET SAFELY REAL-TIME WARNINGS AND INFORMATION WHILE DRIVING

HMI FOR ELDERLY AND DISABLED DRIVERS TO GET SAFELY REAL-TIME WARNINGS AND INFORMATION WHILE DRIVING Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and In-Vehicle Information Systems (IVIS) are growing in importance within vehicle on-board telematics. However, most automotive industries focus mainly on the needs of average driver cohort, thus the needs of other particular driver cohorts are in many cases overseen. Provision of in-vehicle Information and Communication Technologies (ICT)-based services in conjunction to the ADAS, needs... [Lire la suite]

The overwhelming implications for driverless cars and marketing

The overwhelming implications for driverless cars and marketing   Most analysts believe that by 2020 there could be millions of self-driving cars on the highways. The implications are vast … for safety, for energy savings, for the creation of entirely new industries and business models. It’s time to start thinking through the impact of driverless cars and marketing because suddenly, people who used to be spending their time behind the wheel of a car will have more time to consume content. A LOT more content. Here’s... [Lire la suite]

Augmented reality head-up displays: HMI impacts of different field-of-views on user experience

Augmented reality head-up displays: HMI impacts of different field-of-views on user experience Horizon cockpit Credit photo Visteon   Head-up display (HUD) technology in aviation has been known about since the 1940s. It keeps the pilot’s attention focused outside of the cockpit and supports aircraft control by information visualization within the pilot’s main sight line on a transparent combiner. What has been worked out for pilots, also worked for drivers. “The Oldsmobile 1988 Cutlass Supreme Indianapolis Pace Car and... [Lire la suite]
