For Sweden to uphold its prime status in vehicle technology area, and for Volvo to
maintain its leading position in the world as manufacturer of the safest commercial vehicles, there is a strong need for continued focused applied research on safe and efficient automotive HMI.
The project has HMI for trucks and buses as its main focus, more specifically these three points:
Development of use case scenarios and HMI design strategies for safe
and efficient integration of multiple functions in a unified HMI.
2. HMI Technologies
Exploration and exploitation of existing and emerging HMI technologies, their optimal
combinations and proper uses to facilitate the driver’s interaction with multiple functions.
3. HMI Test Methods
Valid, cost efficient and industrially applicable HMI evaluation methods useful during actual product development work (concept validation to market offering.
