With the ongoing integration of advanced computer systems into vehicles, the interfaces within are becoming ever-more complex. As the prime points of interaction between driver and car, these ‘human–machine interfaces’ (HMI) demand great care and attention from manufacturers, designers and engineers alike.
To that end, we have produced an eBook and 5-part blog where we look into this phenomenon of growing in-car HMI complexity. We explore our belief that an interface should match the evocative nature and elegance of an automobile’s exterior and interior design. We also outline our key thoughts on how, in partnership with manufacturers, we can bring an extra layer of care into the design of compelling experiences, in order to tame the beast that is in-car HMI.
As always, we welcome your feedback and views on this exciting subject. Please do contact us if you want to chat about any aspects of the eBook in further detail.
From all of us at ustwo, we hope you enjoy it.
Amazing what happens when design precedes engineering. ustwo came up with some remarkably effective and simple UX designs for the car, and they released them into the open source community.
A future vehicle will be a “thing” on the internet, but how can industry and community come together to accelerate the future concepts into production.
