Audio is not just what one listens to when driving, it is also part of the overall travel experience, and a key pillar of the safety shield. Parallel approaches are scalable for comfort, HMI, interior lighting, HVAC and IAQ—really, for all interior human-centered design dimensions: comfort is going beyond occupant posture in a seat; HMI is much more than screen readability; interior lighting widens to safety through visual alerts, climate control and air quality influence overall wellbeing.
Vehicle occupant interaction goes through our five basic senses: touch, sight, hearing, smell and taste. The sensing organs associated with each sense send information to the brain to help us understand and perceive the environment around us. Another sense, called proprioception, deals with how the brain understands where the body is in space (and any extensions of it, such as a vehicle).
Proprioception complements how the driver interacts with the vehicle and its environment. Car interior technologies support this holistic approach, and DVN Interior is continuously reporting all these new developments, while keeping always this holistic perspective. The upcoming DVN Interior Workshop (Köln, 25-26 April) is in preparation to cover it. Get set to exhibit, to speak, or just to attend! Find more information here.
