We’ve been busily at work designing and building an DVN-Interior website that’s an easy joy for you to use. And now it’s up and running!
The new site provides easy, direct access to each newsletter as it is published—including this one, of course. It brings you permanent, searchable access to all previous newsletters, DVN-Interior Reports, and all other content archives. Just like the Driving Vision News website, the new DVN-Interior site is a tremendous value-add for DVN-Interior subscribers. Check it out today! Please let us know what you think; if there’s anything about it we can adjust so it works better for you, we’d love to hear from you, so please drop us a note.
today’s newsletter, the Design Lounge brings a Tokyo Motor Show preview—an
appetizer for our forthcoming full coverage. Today’s in-depth article is
centered around new human-machine interfaces and the challenges with occupant monitoring, safety systems, voice assistants, smart
surfaces, 3D imaging, and links to connected services, including MaaS itself.
Some of the challenges could almost be called existential; there are big question marks among consumers and in industry as to feasible pricing for a smart surface control, an embedded voice assistant, a drowsiness alert device, or any of the numerous other services and facilities now possible. The recent Dyson announcement of business unviability of their EV car project points up these kinds of challenges, and underscores the role of traditional vehicle business to finance all these new developments.
We hope you find today’s newsletter enlightening, informative, and enjoyable to read. (Haven’t got your DVN-I subscription yet? You’re missing out; come on in and subscribe!). And don’t forget to pencil in your calendar January 28/29, 2020, in Munich, Germany, to join our 1st DVN Interior Workshop around the theme of “Automotive Interior: New Technologies for New Usages”.
