ABSTRACT:  As we approach the age of autonomy, when connected robotics and autonomous vehicles become widespread, there also comes a need to build human confidence in those AI systems. The Honda HMI concept and Acura Precision Cockpit were new human machine interface electric vehicle interior demonstrators that unlocked the benefits of connectivity and autonomous technology while offering an enhanced driving experience. When designing for autonomous UX systems, however, giving over confidence in the AI safety elements can also be a problem. In order to tackle this, successfully connecting the dots between different industries as we approach the 4th industrial revolution becomes necessary. This talk will cover the role of the futurist in the R&D environment and the evolving role of the interface for machine vision systems.

BIOGRAPHY:   Shaun Westbrook is a Principal HMI Lead and Futurist at Honda R&D Americas, pioneering advances in human machine interfaces. He holds inventor patents in interface technologies and has presented his work at CES, CES Asia, LA Automobility, and NAIAS; covering areas in human mobility, consumer electronics, and AI. His HMI work aims to increase human confidence in future autonomous vehicles and decrease driver distraction for production systems.

Over the course of the year, INCOSE-LA hosts a series of engaging events for the systems engineering community. See our Roadmap for these events, which include conferences, speaker meetings, tutorials, and workshops. So, don't miss out on these opportunities!

We accommodate two different types of Conferences: Conference on Systems Engineering Research (CSER) and mini-conferences. CSER is our biggest conference event, bringing together practioners and researchers from all around the world to one central location to voice their thoughts and ideas on the subject of systems engineering. CSER subjects can range from system architectures to systems of systems. On the other end of the spectrum, mini-conferences are an abbreviated version of CSER. We host intimate one-day mini-conference events, which include a few keynote speakers, technical presentations, and a panel discussion.

Additionally, we offer Speaker Meetings, Tutorials, and Workshops. Each product is designed for a specific purpose and audience. Speaker Meetings are dynamic, educational technical presentations that can be broadcast through the web to reach a broader audience. Tutorials are skill-enhancing sessions for the participating members, who wish to expand their current systems engineering skill set. Workshops are intense sessions designed to reinforce the methods and concepts of systems engineering and empower the creative minds to transform the gained systems engineering knowledge into practice.
