Case Study on Alternative Steering and Control Concepts

Car HMI USA is an award-winning international knowledge exchange platform bringing together all stakeholders leading the technical and design future of automotive HMIs and UX. For the 6th time in 2020, during 2 1/2 days you will get the unique chance to engage with your OEM, T1 & Supplier peers to discuss innovative opportunities as well as challenges in HMI and UX development that lie ahead in the industry. The event provides you with precise insights into new business use cases, concepts, technical challenges and innovations while offering you the chance to discuss specific roadmaps for autonomous vehicles, MaaS, robo taxis, car sharing and under the motto “Intuitive Vehicles + Next Generation UX + HMIs”

Today, we are happy to present another exclusive on-demand video from this year’s “from Home” version:

UX Design & Real Traffic Evaluation of Alternative Steering and Control Concepts by Christopher Brockmeier, Manager Research Area Vehicle Concepts & HMI at RWTH Aachen University.

More than a century ago, the steering wheel was thought to enable the driver to apply high torque. In this decade, automated driving as well as steere-by-wire is about to approach series vehicles. This enables us to design the interior as well as the HMI for steering and cooperative driving with more degrees of freedom and thereby changing the overall UX completely. In this presentation, suitable development tools as well as evaluation methodologies are addressed. Furthermore, results from selected research projects are discussed and an outlook for future potential is derived.

  • Overview of alternative steering and control concepts
  • Impact of ergonomics and automated driving
  • Discussion of suitable development and evaluation methods
  • Results of systematic user studies (simulation & real traffic)
  • Outlook with respect to cooperative driving and interior design
