During my time at Harman International I worked with the Toyota Motor Europe team to build the interface of their next touchscreen infotainment system. I was involved in the entire design process, I learned a lot and I enjoyed working with all sorts of automotive specialists.
Some of my responsibilities included: • Understanding the bigger picture and the goals of the different stakeholders; • Working together with HMI engineers to understand the connections between different car modules; • Creating usage scenarios and screens flow logic for these scenarios; • Defining the behaviour for the different UI components in the system; • Creating and maintaining a styleguide to make the design resources hand-off easier for both the design and development teams.
The system is available on the new Toyota Yaris Cross. Below you can see a few shots by Toyota showcasing the system and a UI walkthrough video by SDA Dan Cars.
