Driverless car HMIs are going
to be very different from today's
vehicle's, says Erik Coelingh,
senior technical leader at Volvo
Cars in Gothenburg, Sweden.
"The type of information we show
is what we think is relevant for
a rider in a self-driving car,"
Coelingh says. This can be a prediction of what the car will do, as
a way of building confidence, or
perhaps a display of "remaining
AV time" - how much longer the
vehicle can operate autonomously before the driver must
retake control.
"The car will not just suddenly
do a lane change. It will tell you
in advance, so that when the car
is moving sideways [the passenger knows] this is not a mistake,"
and depending on how long the
car will drive itself, "you can
decide on what to do. If it's five
minutes you can check some
e-mail on your phone. Maybe if
the car says it's half an hour you
decide to read a newspaper."
And in Volvo's vision, watching
a movie is not unforeseeable,
either. In 2015, Volvo introduced
Concept 26, a prototype selfdriving car interior that integrates a large screen for watching
movies plus lounge seats. "Once
we solve the technical details for
fully autonomous self-driving,
then Concept 26 is not so far
away. A large portion of it could
be implemented in the first fully
self-driving vehicle that we will
develop," Coelingh declares. That is expected as early as 2020.
Intel is also studying how to convey information and build passenger confidence in a driverless vehicle, says Kathy Winter, vice
president and general manager of the company's automated driving
solutions division in Santa Clara, CA. But Intel has found this
becomes a virtuous cycle, with the information less regarded as
trust is built, she says. "You can almost envision repurposing that
display or that screen for something else, maybe give them the
choice of turning it on or off once they're used to it," she proposes.
At CES 2017, the company debuted Intel GO, a driverless platform for automakers that comprises computing hardware, software development tools, 5G-ready cellular connectivity, artificial
intelligence (AI) technology and a cloud-based data center.
"The user experience can evolve dramatically inside the car,
I don't think that's going to be road blocked by any regulation,"
says Danny Shapiro, senior director of automotive at NVIDIA
Corp. in Santa Clara, CA. He imagines a "multimodal" HMI in

autonomous vehicles that combines facial recognition, gesture
recognition, natural language processing and location awareness -
so, the user experience may be
adapted to a particular passenger,
or a passenger may point at something outside, ask "what's that?"
and receive an answer from the
car, Shapiro says.
At CES 2017 NVIDIA introduced AI co-pilot technology,
which acts as an in-vehicle assistant, monitoring the driver and
360 degrees around the vehicle.
CEO Jen-Hsun Huang explained
it at the CES opening keynote.
