Our technical InCabin conference will explore new upcoming technologies and regulations this June.
See how they interact to shape user experience, connectivity, safety and monitoring. Here are our agenda’s top features!
Human Factors are a critical factor to consider and to get right in the design of in-cabin systems, and it is very important that engineers don’t overlook the importance of HMI, since it can break the trust of consumers and it needs to underpin what engineers are doing.
The InCabin Brussels agenda will not only look at the latest technologies that will ensure that the cabin of the near-future meets safety standards, but will also go deeper into the human factors that come into play when designing and evaluating effective interventions.
Joanna Harbluk of Transport Canada knows that innovations in this space are primarily focused on the sensors and detection challenges, but this is only half of the battle. The design of these interventions, particularly the human-machine interface (HMI), is extremely important because success depends on the user responding appropriately. Her presentation will focus on some of the critical human factors challenges and opportunities, particularly: 1) general monitoring system warning design 2) approaches for user testing, and 3) emergent issues to address such as trust, managing false positives, and misuse.
Professor Natasha Merat, who leads the Human Factors and Safety Group at the University of Leeds. Natasha will also join the event and focus her presentation on driver visual attention and readiness in L2/L3 vehicles.
DEEP LEARNING MODELS
Deep learning models will be presented in a focused track, with human factors and HMI also impacting their design. Another University of Leeds representative Dr. Mahdi Rezaei will present a multi-modal deep learning model that fuses multiple sources of inputs from the driver “head pose”, “hand activity”, and “upper body pose” via multiple in-cabin camera sensors plus the “human factor” feeds, all together to understand the driver’s readiness in response to a take-over.
WHAT DOES THE OEM WANT, AND THE CONSUMER THINK?
Whilst the industry is making plans to improve the safety, user experience and convenience of the cabin, OEMs are also looking to differentiate themselves in the next evolution of comfort features and Marco Willems at CARIAD will share his view on what they are looking for the achieve that aim. Coupled with Verena Ihring at Bosch‘s take on what end-customers really think about these “fancy” ideas to improve their comfort with interior sensing, this should be a thought-provoking final session of the event.
TECHNOLOGY ADVANCEMENT AND OTHER CONSIDERATIONS FOR THE CABIN OF THE FUTURE
Other focused sessions throughout the two-day, main technical agenda will present validation and testing strategies for DMS and OMS, the latest 3D technologies and expected advancements in RADAR, with companies such as imec, Pontosense, emotion 3D and IAV sharing their latest research.
Attendees will also learn about the growing possibilities to improve user experience, with Varroc, how to navigate the intersection of ethics and innovation in the future of in-cabin sensing, with Meili Technologies and the opportunities and challenges OEMs and suppliers face by implementing a modular software architecture to enable easy updateability of vehicles, with fka.
In addition to the importance of employing the correct approach when incorporating health screening into the functions of the cabin, with Optalert.
DEBATE, DISCUSSION AND INTERACTIVE LEARNING
We also plan to host an ethical debate on impairment detection next steps and a discussion on how to ensure data privacy and transparency is in place for DMS, with representatives from Bosch, Tobii and Sony in addition to hosting tutorials and round table discussions, the details of which will be announced soon.
