Human-Machine Interface (HMI)

As more features, services, and abilities are added to modern cars, the challenge of presenting drivers with an easy way to control those features is growing. At the same time, the range of technologies enabling more intimate connections between human and machine is expanding rapidly. And we're no longer limited to "active" UI elements, but we can sense, passively, what the human may want or need. We now have access to:

  • Body sensors
  • Eye tracking
  • ADAS
  • Voice interfaces
  • 3D and hand gesture recognition
  • Touch interfaces
  • And more…

But which of these technologies is best, which perform in ways that are car-appropriate, and which will be easiest for regular drivers to use to interact with their automobile?

Join the Autotech Council's HMI meeting, to discuss diverse forward-looking opinions on HMI and look at a number of startups who have innovations that can change the way people give –and get – information from their car.

The Autotech Council opens its doors to non-members a few times each year to take a deep dive into a segment of the auto industry that is attracting large amounts of innovation and investment. These ½-day, executive-format agendas highlight a few larger vendors who are leading the segment forward and bring dozens of undiscovered companies to the stage as well. These agendas always include plenty of time for networking, business discussions, and an interactive format that promotes relationships between member and non-member companies.
This meeting is free for Autotech Council members, open to non-members for a $200 fee, and Rapid Fire Demo Slots are available during registration to companies who can show off new products or services based on sensors and sensor technology.

Demo Tables Available
Demo tables are available during registration to any company with a product or service in this market segment who would like to show their technology during the morning and lunch breaks.
