New interaction technologies enable alternatives to the traditional, mostly visual-manual, modalities. A user interface that combines traditional and new modalities may be both safer and more attractive to customers/users.
The aim of the project is to explore the potential benefits of different multimodal HMI concepts for current and future vehicle functionality. The overall goals are increased traffic safety, customer/user satisfaction and competitiveness.
The knowledge gained in this project will be applied in future development of new generations of cockpit HMI that enables the driver to: (i) perform complex secondary tasks with minimal visual distraction and a high level of user acceptance, and (ii) enable an intuitive and user friendly user interface for emerging functions, like autonomous driving and advanced active safety functions.
