In conjunction with the SAE 2014 World Congress at Cobo Center, the Detroit Marriott Renaissance Center will host professional development seminars, two of which will be taught by technical fellows with Visteon's Electronics business. Michael Tschirhart, Ph.D., will educate participants about "Vehicle User Experience: Human Factors Principles and Techniques for Design, Research and Development," while John Kosinski will train professionals on "Developing In-Vehicle User Interfaces: Design Principles and Techniques." For more insight into Kosinski's session, read his blog at http://blog.visteon.com.  

The SAE World Congress program includes Chat with the Expert panels. Visteon Six Sigma Master Black Belt Balaji Bharadwaj will offer recommendations during the panel titled, "Transactional Six Sigma Techniques for Developing High-Performance Teams in the Automotive Industry." Tschirhart is also participating in a panel discussion  titled: "Human Factors of Connected Vehicles (plus are connected cars necessary for self-driving cars to succeed?)."

Along with Kathleen Ku, Tschirhart will present two Safety/Testing papers focused on topics related to human-machine interaction (HMI). One paper outlines the influence of font type on displays in an automotive environment, while the second reveals research findings related to driver perceptions about varying image depth and dimensions in instrument clusters.

HVCC will present papers in the Emissions/Environment/Sustainability sessions, including a joint paper with Hyundai that discusses the combined condensing air-conditioning system. Another technical paper will outline ways to determine vehicle dual air conditioning system charge level.

Visteon has four papers in the Electronics technical sessions – covering an array of topics including sample rate conversions, approaches to reduce development time, algorithms for signal processing, and an analysis of connected vehicle software.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
