HMI Methods & Tools Development-METOHMI-C-Bas-Additional Applications
Purpose and goal
Objectives were: - HMI evaluation methodology for the HMI development process, i.e. research, early stages, design verification to increase a safe, attractive and green driving - Guidelines and measurable goals for driving performance indicators, usability, joy of use and green driving - A complete cycle of simulations (both HMI simulations and Driving Simulations) for the HMI design development. - Implementing a holistic approach for HMI development and evaluation. - A toolkit for open HMI innovation.
Results and expected effects
The most important effects of the project have been: Establishment of a research cooperation between the automotive industry and academia Support to PhD research Research and demonstrators of HMI concepts for personalization and multi-modal user interfaces HMI concept for energy-efficient planning and driving of hybrid vehicles The result from the project constitutes a base for both further research within the FFI program and for product development of passenger cars.
Approach and implementation
Monthly project meetings, including at least one representative for each WP. Workshops on demand, at startup of WP or Task, for problem solving and for sharing results and knowledge Internal Conferences, two times per year, and participation in selected external conferences, Reports: Monthly reports from WP teams to project manager Quarterly financial and status reports from each partner to project manager. Quarterly PhD student status reports from applicable supervisors to project manager Status and financial reporting to FFI via VINNOVA web portal, twice yearly
