VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd

Espoo, Finland

VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd is a visionary research, development, and innovation partner for domestic and international customers and partners, both in private and public sectors. VTT drives sustainable growth and tackles the biggest global challenges of our time and turn them into growth opportunities. The center goes beyond the obvious to help society and companies grow through technological innovations.

In the context of the TrustVehicle European project, VTT has been using EB GUIDE to prototype the HMI of one of the TrustVehicle demonstration vehicles – an electric bus that automatically and accurately drives to a charging station at a bus stop in Helsinki, Finland. The HMI design went through several expert evaluations and iteration rounds as the details of the target environment and automated driving analysis were highly complex . Finally, the HMI prototype running on a tablet computer was evaluated by professional bus drivers.

Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt

Technische Hochschule Ingolstadt (THI)

Ingolstadt, Germany

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’s and four master’s 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 University

Yonsei HCI Lab

Yonsei University
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

Yonsei University
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.

Heilbronn UniversityAutomotive Systems Engineering (ASE)

Heilbronn University

Automotive Systems Engineering (ASE)
Heilbronn, Germany

Heilbronn University ranks among the major institutions of higher education in the state of Baden-Württemberg where it caters to about 8300 degree-seeking students on four campuses. Its diverse range of study programs in business studies, engineering and information technology provide a sound theoretical grounding. Because the Heilbronn region is dominated by the automotive and machinery industry, the university founded the study program 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 third year course on HMI based on EB GUIDE and extend the usage to other programs in the university.
