Add your ideas, prototype screenshots, etc. for IVI UX's here.
In the IVI area (and especially in automotive industry), HMI is considered to be a means for branding and differentiating. This applies not only to the software, but also to the specific input and output devices used to interact with the user. Due to safety aspects, voice input plays an important role. Due to multi-user support (e.g. front and rear seat passengers), multiple displays (possibly with multiple HMI instances) as well multiple audio zones must be supported.
One of the first steps is to agree on some configuration of input/output devices that the IVI vertical would aim to support. On the one hand it should be fairly rich to support at least some of interesting use cases. On the other hand it should be relatively inexpensive and easy to realize with commodity hardware.
This is a proposal that needs to be further discussed in the WG.
MeeGo IVI UX should provide integrated support for the devices listed below and ordered from higher to lower priority. In some cases, there are existing peripherals that can be used to implement and test such devices.
