Human Factors Design Assistance for Driver-Vehicle Interfaces

This presentation by Eric Traube of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration showcases the NHTSA's framework of human factors principles for the design of automotive HMI

Can Vehicle HMI Technology Catch Up to Consumer Electronics

This article by Colin Pawsey of Automotive IQ questions whether BMW, FCA, Harman, Bosch, and Hyundai's recent infotainment/telematics projects can ever hope to compete with the adaptability and development cycles of consumer electronics. Download the PDF to find out how these companies are proactively trying to harmonize collaboration in both sectors, and how they can make the technology more adoptable for the end user.

Human Factors in Traffic - From Assisted to Automated Driving

Dr. Dietrich Manstetten of Robert Bosch presents on human factors in traffic, examining the following points:

  • Results from public funded project UR:BAN MV
  • HMI challenges when advancing from assisted to automated driving. 
  • From distraction to situational awareness - the role of driver monitoring
  • Interaction concepts for highly automated driving
  • Intention recognition and behavior prediction
  • Analysis of glance patterns for lane change
  • From behavior analysis to maneuver prediction
  • The Big Five - HMI Challenges in Automated Driving

Calibrating Trust in Automated Systems

Siddartha Khastgir, human factors researcher at the University of Warwick, presents a paper he co-authored 'Calibrating Trust to Increase the Use of Automated Systems in a Vehicle'

Elegant Solutions: An Interview with Google's Golden Krishna

In the lead-up to the 4th Annual Cockpit HMI conference in Ann Arbor, MI, Automotive IQ sat down with presenter Golden Krishna to discuss his work on Google's design strategy to shape the future of Android, trends in interface design, the challenges of going screenless, and how we can build a technologically advances world without digital interfaces.

Data Security in Connected Vehicles

Vehicle connectivity and highly automated functions are becoming a double-edged sword. Software and embedded technologies are taking over more and more safety-critical functions, and in turn, we're seeing a parallel increase in security risks. The more data being collected, stored, and transmitted by a connected vehicle interface, the bigger the cyber security threat it poses.

This article goes into detail about the potential threats, the automotive-specific challenges, and the legislation and collaboration we're beginning to see addressing this issue. Download the article to find out how to go about protecting data and maintaining security!

Expert Interview with Continental Automotive GmbH and University of Salzburg

In the run-up to Automotive IQ's conference on Human Machine Interfaces, Continentals Dr. Voehringer-Kuhnt and Alexander Meschtscherjakow from the University of Salzburg gave us the opportunity to talk to them about the challenges of the topic and what they will be doint at the conference.
