User Interface and Experience

UI/UX Service

Analyzes how displays, speech recognition, and other interfaces are revolutionizing the way users interact with vehicles

The user experience is now the point for differentiation among automakers. As technology is prioritized, the design and implementation of infotainment, safety,  and comfort systems become paramount. Designing  the proper human-machine interface (HMI) platform  and using cutting edge displays, speech recognition,  and other interfaces will not only be the key to increased  sales but also for future customer loyalty.

The IHS Markit User Interface & Experience (UI/UX) Service provides insight, context, data, and analytics for the HMI and user-experience technologies and  best practices in HMI design and implementation.

Clients can quickly access key insights from market developments, put context around events and technological innovations, dive into deep data and forecasts, and seamlessly drive analytics to support their most challenging decisions.

Topics covered:

  • Display systems: instrument cluster display, center stack display,  head-up display
