The Human Machine Interface Report - Key to Automotive Industry

Share Article

Telematics Update’s Human Machine Interface Report has revealed an ominous statistic: In 2010 there were 3000 USA deaths due to distracted driving.

As consumers demand more and more in-car connectivity, such as Facebook, navigation apps or video streaming, there is huge and dangerous potential for drivers to be distracted. 31 states have already banned texting and some the use of mobile devices in the vehicle altogether. As a consequence automakers are faced with a challenge: How do they satisfy consumer demand for in-vehicle content and adhere to strict safety regulations? Telematics Update’s HMI Report (2012 edition) aims to help automakers and telematics solution providers do just that.

Anupam Malhotra, Connected Vehicle Manager of Audi America can attest: “The report is an excellent resource for professionals and academia looking for a panoramic view of how the automotive industry is innovating user interfaces to meet a dual challenge; the convergence of connectivity technologies in the vehicle and the growing demand for cutting edge safety, convenience, and infotainment services.”

Hakan Kostepen, Director, Planning and Innovation- Advanced Product Strategy at Panasonic describes the report as “A great study with true insight into all key players, trends and user behaviors. It is a very comprehensive report for all audiences”.
