Project Description

The in-car user experience has been increasing in functionality and complexity for years. To take advantage of all this has to offer, humans have had to figure out how these computer systems work. What if it were the other way around? The Predictive User Experience concept enables us to take advantage of computer intelligence to let the system learn how individual humans work, understand them, and make their experience better. By learning their habits and behaviors, it can reduce the number of explicit actions, reduce distractions, simplify interactions, increase safety, and make the driving experience more enjoyable.
