The two-years project with 8,5-million-euro budget is funded by Business Finland. The consortium combining academic and commercial forces also has the three international partners from the U.S. – University of California (Santa Barbara), Purdue University and Bentley University.
The project led by UTA focuses mainly on two things: creating smoother ways for the driver to control the vehicle and ways to present the information through various senses.
Siili_auto is the world’s premier creative technology studio fully focused on product innovation and product creation for next generation mobility. In the MIVI project we challenge our expertise in collecting, analyzing, enriching and utilizing the data of the user, the vehicle, the driving and the circumstance.
The data enables a more improved, more personal user experience. Data more responsible yet smarter provides nothing but the right and necessary information for quick decision-making. Simultaneously the more efficient and contextual use of data provides opportunities for new data-based revenue models, like services related to cars or an easier daily life.
Are you curious to see the breakthrough ideas and innovations the joint project will provide? We’ll keep you posted regularly and release the finding and demonstrations along the way. Stay tuned!
The new Origo Steering Wheel concept is the first joint demonstration and research platform to emerge from the Multimodal In-Vehicle Interaction and Intelligent Information Presentation (MIVI) consortium. The Origo Steering Wheel Concept improves the way a driver accesses information, and controls non-driving functions, in the vehicle with intuitive thumb controls accessible with a safe hands-on-wheel driving position. Relevant information is presented in each situation, ensuring the driver can focus on the primary task: safe driving. The new Origo Steering Wheel Concept replaces multiple mechanical controls in different locations with novel, 3-dimensional touch sensors that are integrated in the steering wheel and easily operated by thumb, providing a natural, smartphone-like interaction.
The Origo Steering Wheel concept has been co-created by Canatu, Siili Auto, Rightware and TactoTek®, each bringing their unique expertise to the project:
We’re proud to state MIVI’s off to a start quite revolutionary. With a software built on Kanzi UI and Connect platforms provided by Rightware and tech developed by a Finnish intelligent photography company Visidon, we have succeeded in crafting a successful facial recognition in a car. The technology commonly familiar from cell phones enables us to take the driving experience to a whole new level – a smarter, easier, and safer one. Watch the demo. We’re just getting started
The voice replaces the touch – boldly said, but that is one big trend that is happening in the Car HMI development.
At Siili Auto we're doing everything we can to always stay ahead of the curve with the HMI technology and always identify biggest pain points that our customers need to address. As the tech progresses exponentially every year, the need for more rich designs and push for improvements in the process of bringing those designs to life on the target are becoming the number one concern of many OEMs and TIER-1s.
