Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt (THI)
The Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt (THI) is a dynamic and highly committed university of applied sciences that offers a wide range of programs that prepare students to use scientific methods in their professional careers. The faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EE&CS) offers seven bachelor and four master degree courses to more than 1500 students. Beyond the two core disciplines, the faculty offers specialized study programs meeting the specific demands of the high-tech job market such as e-mobility, mechatronics, automotive engineering, aircraft and vehicle informatics, business information systems and user experience design.
User experience design (UXD) is an interdisciplinary program that integrates technology, design thinking, conceptual exploration and design, usability testing, and communication/psychology with practical skills to focus on the role of design in innovation.
Within UXD, EB GUIDE will not only be part of the courseware (for example, software prototyping and usability testing, design and execution of usability tests) but will also be used in student projects, specialized elective subjects (for example, in the module designing interactive products) and for final theses. Use cases that students are likely to create include competitive designs in the automotive, medical, and industrial fields, usability testing in automotive applications, design concepts for freely programmable instrument clusters, and more.

Yonsei HCI Lab
Seoul, South Korea
Established in 1994, Yonsei HCI (Human Computer Interaction) Laboratory is a research institute located in Yonsei University, Seoul, South Korea.
HCI Lab is committed to research and development projects in the field of Human Computer Interaction. Its research focus is on creating digital companion systems that improve quality of life while also educating researchers who can, in turn, lead human-centered innovation projects across domains.
With a special focus on the automotive domain, HCI Lab has worked on several projects that deal with autonomous vehicles and HMI development. Elektrobit´s EB GUIDE tool will be used to prototype new HMI concepts. Through an iterative process, HCI Lab will create new features that future driving companions perform to enable driver safety and experience.

Technology and Design Research Center
Incheon, South Korea
The Technology and Design Research Center (TDRC) aims to achieve research that combines technology, design, liberal arts and arts.
TDRC is particularly interested in the field, which aims to investigate the human-centric user experience (UX) and interaction between human beings and machines, such as Human Computer Interaction (HCI) or Human Machine Interaction (HMI). Within this era where the society rapidly changes alongside with the technological development, precedent research study will enhance human-centric value on upcoming technologies.
As a research group that researches and develops HMI for the autonomous vehicle, TDRC performs precedent HMI research projects with various companies, such as SKT, Samsung Display, LG Display, Hyundai Motors, and Kia Motors. EB GUIDE is used to prototype diverse HMI concepts that are necessary to perform such projects. The introduction of EB GUIDE benefits the research projects in terms of research quality and efficiency.

Autonomous Institute of Sciences of Zacatecas
Founded in 1832, in Zacatecas, Mexico, the Autonomous University of Zacatecas (Universidad Autónoma de Zacatecas) is a premier, public university that caters to over 30,000 undergraduate, master and post-doctoral students. A research university, its study programmes range from art and culture to basic sciences, humanities and education, economic sciences and engineering and technology.
The engineering and technology faculty offers degrees in electrical, electronics, software and automotive engineering among other disciplines. The EB GUIDE tool will be used as part of the courseware to teach students to use modeling tools within their disciplines as well as being used in automotive-related research projects. The courses will include modules on HMI modeling and development.

Automotive Systems Engineering (ASE)
Heilbronn University ranks amongst the major institutions of Higher Education in the state of Baden-Württemberg where it caters to about 8,300 degree-seeking students on four campuses. Its diverse range of study programmes in Business Studies, Engineering and Information Technology provide a sound theoretical grounding. Because the Heilbronn region is dominated by automotive and machinery industry, the university founded a study programme Automotive Systems Engineering (ASE) in 2002. In ASE, model based design, autonomous and electrical driving and advanced control technology are important subjects. EB GUIDE is used in several projects, like the development of instrument clusters for two experimental autonomous vehicles, and for the HMI of a charging station. Furthermore, it is planned to develop a 3rd year course on HMI based on EB GUIDE and extend the usage to other programmes in the university.

Higher School of Technology and Economics in Szczecin
The Higher School of Technology and Economics is a non-state school located in Szczecin, which specializes in producing highly qualified engineers and specialists in the following sectors: automobile industry and IT.
Our activities focus mainly on practical education, since it is common knowledge that practical experience is essential in both sectors. We are substantially supported by the Business Expert Committee, i.e. institutions and businesses connected with automobile industry and IT, which actively participate in the teaching process. Our school is equipped with modern laboratories and workshops, boosted with the know-how provided by various businesses and institutions we cooperate with.
Each year we award several dozen diplomas and engineering titles. Our graduates get on well in both sectors and several of them have made careers in leading automotive and IT companies. As a unique focus, students specialize in “HMI System Modeling”.

Technical University of Munich (TUM)
Technical University of Munich (TUM) is committed to excellence in research and teaching, interdisciplinary education, and the active promotion of promising young scientists. In 2009, the University founded the hands-on project eCARus, where each year about 60 students develop an electric car. All the technical development—from power transmission systems to IT—as well as the organization of the project are left up to the students. With the help of Elektrobit´s EB GUIDE, students create the eCARus-GUI to view and control features and vehicle information like battery level, warning lights, and the handbrake state.
