Human-Machine-Interface (HMI)

A Holistic Human-Machine-Interface is to make the understanding of information and the reaction to it as easy and intuitive as possible.

Information is collected, prioritized, and quickly presented in a focused and clear way. The flow of information is reduced, by taking the driving situation and the driver’s condition into account. Only relevant information and appropriate actions are offered in the respective situation. In addition, the driver receives a reliable confirmation for every action initiated. This strengthens trust in the vehicle’s individual functions and clearly indicates that the driver is and will remain in constant control of the situation. This kind of trust is particularly important when looking at future technologies such as automated driving.
