Technical Session Schedule

Thursday, April 10

Chat with the Experts: HMI
(Session Code: IDMCHAT)

Room 330 A/B  4:00 p.m.

The evolution of automotive HMI continues to be influenced by consumers who expect experiences that resemble interactions with other familiar digital interfaces – particularly those in mobile devices. The modern auto interior can offer as many as 700 distinct functions, yet designs must be intuitive and safe; striking this balance is a challenge. Studies have shown that driver distraction can be mitigated by adding non-visual confirmation in the form of audio and tactile (haptic) feedback to touch-based interfaces. While each reduces distraction, the greatest benefit is achieved when both are used. Providing confirmation by simulating the mechanical sense of physical buttons, knobs and sliders, haptics reduce glance time and minimize distraction.
