NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Luxoft Holding, Inc (NYSE:LXFT), a leading provider of software development services and innovative IT solutions to a global client base, announced at the Geneva Motor Show 2015 development of the Human-Machine Interface (HMI) for a revolutionary electric-powered self-driving vehicle concept, Budii, created by Rinspeed to help redefine the relationship between man and machine. Rinspeed is a Swiss automobile manufacturer and tuning designer.
The human-centric Budii is capable of learning a driver’s habits and preferences. The entire cockpit is designed around humans and their needs. The digital instrument cluster and navigation screen are augmented by the head-up display. The intelligent car understands gestures and interacts with its environment and other vehicles along its route. See the video demonstration of Budii here.
“The relationship between a driver and a car is defined through the Human Machine Interface or HMI,” said Luxoft’s Managing Director for Automotive and Transport, Mikhail Bykov. “HMI is the key to a superior user experience for both the driver and passengers. We use the design language to create car HMIs that are attractive, efficient, intelligent, reliable, non-distractive, user-friendly, and help to develop the uniqueness of the brand. We are very proud Luxoft was chosen to create the HMI for this innovative ‘lab on wheels’ that will help shape the future of the autonomous vehicles.”
“In the near future, the relationship between human and machine will move to a different level. Cars will learn drivers’ habits and adapt to their preferences, becoming reliable companions,” said Rinspeed CEO, Frank M. Rinderknecht. “A well-designed HMI is like a good translator from human language to machine language and vice versa. We are grateful to Luxoft for doing such an incredible job developing HMI for our Budii concept. Luxoft team rose to every challenge we faced fleshing out our vision of the future.”
Rinspeed Budii is demonstrated at Stand 6240 during the Geneva International Motor Show 2015 on March 5 – 15, 2015.
