Working hand-to-hand with designers, developers, and engineers on advanced human-machine interfaces (HMIs) within confidential electric vehicles from Seat automotive (a project hosted by Altran technolgies). Head-up displays or in-vehicle HMIs, are powerful graphical interfaces that enable the user/driver to stay connected with the vehicle. My mission for this project was to conduct multiple tests and optimize graphics through weekly software-based simulations and hardware-prototypes. These included test-drives under real driving conditions both at Seat (Barcelona) and VW's infotainment development center in Braunschweig (Germany).
The UI/UX HMI development process includes the following satges: 1. Brief delivery by VW with a set of specific graphic hierarchies and software specifications to Seat. / 2. Design development: the graphical user interface is tested by modeling it through an interactive HMI (using Elektrobit Guide Studio software and generated simulator builds). Newcoming issues are evaluated and solved across different teams. / 3. HMI behavior, usability, responsiveness, legalities and layout are tested independently in all screen levels. / 4. New design requirements are validated and created for further improvements. / 5. Design meets both legal and technical demands.
