Human-Machine Interfaces (HMI) have become no. 1 priority in many industrial projects. Designing the HMI for efficient use is all about users, tasks and contexts. But how will these change with the rising Industrial Internet of Things (Digital Industry 4.0)?
Human roles and tasks will significantly change in networked and intelligent production environments. Traditional usability approaches to support efficient surveillance and operation will still be important but not sufficient anymore.
The speech will explain and provide examples for three major trends in Human-Machine Interfaces: (1) Symbiotic HMI that allow for dynamic assignment and sharing of tasks and responsibilities between human and machine, (2) Social HMI that support human communication and collaboration between team members for efficient decision-making and coordination, and (3) Emotional HMI that involve design strategies to create positive user experiences as a source for increased human engagement, creativity and flexibility.
