NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Luxoft Holding, Inc (NYSE:LXFT US), a leading provider of software development services and innovative IT solutions to a global client base, today announced it received an award by we.CONECT’s CAR HMi Concepts and Systems 2014 Congress for “Human Machine Interface (HMI) Design Innovation.” Luxoft was the only IT services company to be recognized.
Luxoft’s reference design platform for in-vehicle user experience (UX), AllView, was recognized for “HMI Design Innovation” at the Congress, which took place in Berlin, Germany. Luxoft was honored with a second place after Volkswagen. This recognition is of utmost significance for our automotive practice as it bringing the Company into the spotlight along with vertical leaders and positioning it as a specialty provider for automotive industry, not an IT outsourcing company.
It was a first time in the Company’s history that Luxoft-branded HMI was showcased.
Luxoft has developed a number of industry-leading HMIs, which are deployed in many premium cars, but development was always in cooperation with a Tier-1 supplier or a Tier-1 supporting an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM). The award is a testament to Luxoft’s extensive HMI expertise, and presents Luxoft as an independent brand to the automotive industry, one that is driving innovation in HMI design.
AllView can support OEMs in optimizing the car user experience and improve safety by reducing driver distraction. The HMI integrates workload management and enables personalized access to media and location content, while taking into account location- and context-relevant information (weather, workload, trip, terrain, etc.), and engaging with the driver for an enhanced driving experience.
The latest version of AllView – Timescape – contains an updated concept for the information distribution between multiple screens in the car – the head unit, instrument cluster, and the smartphone using time markers from the past as well as planned events from the future to tie it all together.
“This was the first time we comprehensively demonstrated the full extent of Timescape’s capabilities, and we are very excited not only about our achievement being recognized, but also our continued progression and contribution within this industry,” said Luxoft’s VP for Technology Strategy, Vasiliy Suvorov. “Consumers often compare their automotive HMI to their mobile device and other electronics, and the subpar user experience within the car. Through Timescape, Luxoft has elevated the in-vehicle experience, to one that is not only safe, but one that is as easy to use and enjoyable as one’s mobile device or tablet.” For product or service inquiries, please contact Luxoft’s automotive practice at Automotive@Luxoft.com.
