October 3, 2017.  By Jennifer Colegrove Ph.D.

I just returned from the SID Vehicle Display and Interface 2017 conference in Detroit, Michigan. It was my honor to meet some of you in person.

This year’s conference had record high attendees—approximately 500 industry professionals. I recall when I spoke at this conference about 10 years ago regarding touch screen, there were approximately 100 attendees. This growth is another reflection of the automotive industry’s adoption of advanced technologies.

Dr. Thomas Seder, GM Technical Fellow & Chief Technologist-HMI at General Motors, gave a Keynote speech titled “Augmented Reality System Architecture, Supporting Technologies and HMI Requirements” on September 26th.
