WHAT IS PRESENCE?

Presence is a seamless and engaging

car communication system. It enables each family member to travel safely and independently while

feeling connected to their loved ones.

 

Why should you use Presence?

Presence comes with 3 core features

to make sure that the remote communication in your

autonomous car becomes real.

ABOUT US

We are a team consisting of 3 computer science students from Hasso Plattner-Institute in Germany and 5 mechanical engineering students from the US. The project started in October and will last until July. For the project, the Design Thinking methodology is used, which is a user-centred approach to solving complex problems.

Our contact at Hyundai is the Hyundai UX Strategy Team in South Korea. They work on future car UI, cars as a workspace and urban mobility concepts. They encourage us to freely explore the problem space, are interested in our outsiders' perspective and expect us to develop for the far future.
The UX Strategy Team gave us the design challenge and provided valuable input and feedback on our prototypes in biweekly meetings.
