Graphical and voice user interfaces: A mulit-modal challenge for drivers and researchers
Author: Philipp Reiter & Carina de Lopez, eye square GmbH
Man and machine as one?
Autonomous driving is on the rise and we are starting to see increasing numbers of automated vehicles on the road. These so-called ‘mixed traffic environments’ require new approaches to the Human Machine Interface (HMI) as well as different ways of looking at information and communication flows. New developments in areas such as augmented and virtual reality provide for exciting new options in HMI by improving user experiences and increasing levels of digitalization in vehicles. Furthermore, user demands are constantly changing and manufacturers and developers need to keep pace with consumer tastes, trends and behaviors.
The VDI Automotive HMI & Connectivity conference will look at how the connection between man and machine can respond to these new technological breakthroughs and a constantly changing reality on our roads. From autonomous driving and increasing connectivity to the Internet of Things (IoT) and Vehicle Communication (V2X), this conference will look at the future of mobility and give you the opportunity to discuss, engage and exchange ideas with professionals and experts in the field.
