Download Automotive User Interfaces: Creating Interactive Experiences by Gerrit Meixner, Christian Müller PDF

By Gerrit Meixner, Christian Müller

This e-book specializes in car consumer interfaces for in-vehicle utilization, taking a look at automobile electronics, its software program of hidden applied sciences (e.g., ASP, ESP), convenience services (e.g., navigation, conversation, leisure) and driving force advice (e.g., distance checking). The elevated complexity of automobile consumer interfaces, pushed by way of the necessity for utilizing buyer digital units in automobiles in addition to self sustaining riding, has sparked a plethora of latest examine inside of this box of research.

Covering a wide spectrum of specified themes, the authors of this edited quantity supply a good evaluate of the present state-of-the-art; supplying deep insights into usability and person adventure, interplay thoughts and applied sciences in addition to tools, instruments and its purposes, exploring the expanding significance of Human-Computer-Interaction (HCI) in the automobile industry

Automotive consumer Interfaces is meant as an authoritative and invaluable source for pro practitioners and researchers alike, in addition to laptop technology and engineering scholars who're drawn to car interfaces.

Meixner et al. Fig. 14 Audi TT Digital Cockpit (Häcker 2015) Conventional instrument clusters consist of electro-mechanical tachometers, speedometers, odometers, oil gauges, etc. These are often complemented by a display used for showing information such as the on-board computer or ACC warning. Whereas in luxury class vehicles, full-color and high-resolution displays are common, simple seven-segment LC displays are still in use in lower price vehicles. However, there is a clear trend toward replacing the electro-mechanical components with virtual instruments shown in the displays, which in turn are becoming larger.

But beyond the in-vehicle solution also smartphone functions which let the user interact with music, social media or phone contacts via voice control are common like Apple’s Siri, Google’s Google Now, or Microsoft’s Cortana. These personal assistants are familiar to the driver and always up-to-date. Especially, Ford is one of leading car manufacturers that pushes the smartphone integration combined with voice recognition. The so-called Ford SYNC is a voice-based communication system that is connectable via Bluetooth.

The OEMs also employ testing, on the system level. They also face the largest number of challenges; several of the recent advancements in the domain pose a challenge and require special methods for testing. An emerging discipline in the field is model-based testing. However, even with model-based development, there are still some challenges. One of the main challenges is multi-modality (see Sect. 3). , numbers or interacting directly on the screen. This means that all test cases have to be modified and executed several times in order to include the various possibilities for interaction.
