Red carpet appearance at CarHMi 2019: EB wins an award for “most innovative HMI feature”

An Viet My Phan

Attendees of this year’s CarHMi in Berlin had a unique opportunity to experience EB innovation first-hand via an interactive infotainment demo. The EB cockpit demonstrator – a feature which can proactively alert drivers of incidents on the road and assist in the handover between autonomous and manual modes of driving – surpasses the capabilities of a standard Amazon Alexa integration. Judges of the annual award ceremony were equally impressed, naming the Android-based cockpit demonstrator one of the “Most Innovative HMI Feature” nominees of the year. And that’s not all. In recognition of this exceptional innovation, CarHMi donated €1000 to the Berlin-based charity Youvo, which brings creative people and social organizations together.

2019 marked the fourth year of EB @ CarHMi, and we had plenty of other goodies to unveil, like the EB/MyScript UX solution with advanced handwriting recognition engine. With this joint solution, we are integrating MyScript handwriting technology into our CSP demonstrator built with EB GUIDE, our end-to-end HMI development toolchain, to provide the drivers with an enjoyable and high-performance way to interact with their vehicles during their journey.

Last but not least, we also brought into the conference for open discussion a real-life case study of EB GUIDE with the interesting talk from Sören Bergmann-Eggers, our HMI expert, on the importance of EB GUIDE in the success of a cluster HMI project, from prototype to production-ready.
