    Systems Architecting and Engineering

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars

    Speaker: Shaun Westbrook, Principal HMI Lead and Futurist, Honda R and D Americas

    Talk Title: Vehicle Human Interaction and IoT

    Series: INCOSE-LA Speaker Series

    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. 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 and D environment and the evolving role of the interface for machine vision systems.

    Location: between Imperial and El Segundo Blvd (north to south), between the 405 Freeway and Sepulveda (east to west).

    From the 105 Freeway traveling WEST:
    1. Take the exit towards 405 South
    2. Before getting onto the 405 Freeway, take the El Segundo Blvd exit
    3. At the bottom of the ramp, turn left (west)
    4. Turn right on Aviation Blvd.
    5. Bldg. D8 will be on the third building on the Right, just past the discount bakery.

    The facility is the third building from the corner of Aviation and El Segundo, just north of the discount bakery outlet. The facility has 4 gates, but only the southern-most gate is open. Identify yourself to the security guard as attending the INCOSE meeting. You can park where Security directs and enter through the lobby at the center of the building where the flag poles are. Knock on the first of the double doors, and someone will open the door for you. The handicap ramp is on the north side and can be reached by driving all the way around the back of the building. Inform the security guard if you plan to use that ramp.
