Showcasing new technologies that are shaping the user experience for in-vehicle HMI systems and connected services
Show attendees examine Luxoft’s user-friendly HMI features.
BERLIN, Germany, July 11, 2016-- Luxoft Holding, Inc (NYSE:LXFT), a leading provider of software development services and innovative IT solutions to a global client base, today announced it was in the spotlight recently as it won third-place recognition for ‘Most user-friendly HMI feature’ at Europe’s leading HMI and UX event, Car HMI Europe. Held in Berlin on June 20-21 and attended by over 200 experts from the automotive and tech industries, the award recognizes the ongoing innovative Human-Machine Interface (HMI) work from Luxoft.
“Autonomous and driverless vehicles will have a big impact on our future life,” said Olaf Preissner, Head of UX Automotive and Innovations at Luxoft. “HMI will be one of the key differentiators and key factors for success from manual to autonomous driving. Instead of providing simply status and driving – pleasure, comfort and time savings will become the new priorities. HMI will deliver new entertainment and productivity opportunities for the user, as HMI becomes a strong reason for buying a car in the future.”
While at show, Luxoft also presented its new AllView II demonstrator, a complete user experience (UX) solution that showcases our latest driving technology including situation-aware HMI and its new Agile Messenger co-pilot that’s ensures drivers can stay connected and stay safe. The co-pilot automatically controls how and when you receive your messages according to the driving environment, while additional features ensure you stay in control of your privacy.
One feature of AllView II is the agile messaging co-pilot that provides a seamless and unique system experience crossing mobile and automotive domains effectively. The overall HMI design scenario integrates a user’s wish for seamless and instant communication with advanced automotive HMI technologies and the needs for driving safety considerations. This allows for safer interaction with frequently and widely used connected media information while driving by combining advanced automotive HMI technologies, a driving support-oriented user experience concept, and nomadic device-style graphics design approach.
The agile messaging co-pilot itself is based on a cockpit-level implementation combining advanced HMI technologies like natural language voice technology, spatial gesture recognition, eye-tracking, and an advanced driver monitoring system.
