The Automotive Human-Machine Interface: Voice Control, Touch Screens, Head-Up Displays, Dynamic Clusters, Gesture Recognition, and Steering Wheel Controls

As ADAS and navigation systems move into the mainstream - available in most vehicle segments and standard in high-end vehicles - and the integration of smartphones takes off, the challenge is to manage all the driver information so that it does not become a distraction. It is also a way for manufacturers to differentiate their products. Steering wheel controls are now widely used, but the question is how many buttons are too many? Head-up displays have been around for some time, but with limited availability. Dynamic clusters are just getting into volume manufacture and offer designers a new level of flexibility as well as the opportunity for driver customization. In terms of input/output options, voice control, gesture recognition, and touch screens are all in the process of implementation and experimentation. Introduction of radically new technology is always risky and can sometimes lead to a backlash from customers. This study outlines the latest HMI developments and those coming close to production and forecasts the anticipated adoption rates in six major world regions. The forecast period covers 2011 to 2022.
