The automotive industry, particularly the UX and connectivity departments, are mainly driven by technological advancements. It’s the engineers who work on the future of mobility and the human machine interface – with their specific skill set and mindset: Developing construction plans and wireframes, thinking a machine from the inside to the outside.
It seems as if the main discussion around the future of mobility is solely evolving around the question if the HMI (human machine interface) is going to be communicating via user interface, gesture control or voice.
But the real question is: How can we take up a change of perspective? How can we truly humanize technology so people are not afraid to use it? It’s about relationship, isn’t it? It’s about trust. And this happens when tech starts speaking our language. When engineers start thinking in narratives and stories. Time to do some work on our storytelling skills.
