Evaluation of HMI Systems

As a basis for the development of human-machine-interfaces for infotainment or ADAS systems, it is essential to understand the strengths and weaknesses of the existing solutions in terms of usability and user experience.

Our offer ranges from expert inspections, verifying the compliance with standards and guidelines like ESOP and JAMA, to validated user studies with statistically significant results.

Possible evaluation tools include simple Lane Change Tasks, Peripheral Detection Tasks and shutter glasses as well as more sophisticated set-ups like our static or dynamic driving simulators. Other investigations might call for our test track or even real traffic scenarios.

Taking advantage of vehicle data, hand and body posture detection as well as eye and face tracking tools we are able to analyse the user‘s interaction with the system thoroughly. Moreover, our psychologists from the user experience department put us in the position to evaluate the driver distraction and mental effort as well as the overall system acceptance.
