Mercedes-Benz Wins the "Red Dot Award for Design Concept"

STUTTGART, GERMANY and SINGAPORE--(Marketwired - September 23, 2016) - The Mercedes-Benz "F 015 Luxury in Motion" vehicle receives the "Red Dot: Best of the Best" award for trailblazing design. The Mercedes-Benz "Concept IAA" won the "Red Dot award" for high quality of design. Both concept cars demonstrate aspiration and innovation of future advancements in user interface and user experience design. The award ceremony took place in Singapore on September 22, 2016.

The annual "Red Dot Design Concept Award" competition sets the standards for future trends, and establishes guidelines for designers. In 2016, over 4600 design concepts from 60 countries were judged by an international jury with 21 members.

  • With the autonomously driving luxury saloon F 015 Luxury in Motion (world premiere at the 2015 CES show in Las Vegas) Mercedes-Benz demonstrates how the car is transformed into a digital sanctury. One key aspect of the research vehicle is the continuous exchange of information between vehicle, passengers and the outside world. Six displays are installed all around the interior for this purpose. Through gestures, eye-tracking and touching the high-resolution screens, the passengers can intuitively interact with the networked vehicle. In the exterior, large LED areas at the front and rear plus a forward-pointing laser projection system are responsible for visual communication with the vehicle's surroundings.
  • The Mercedes-Benz "Concept IAA" (Intelligent Aerodynamic Automobile, world premiere at the 2015 International Motor Show (IAA) in Frankfurt) is two cars in one: it is an aerodynamics world champion with a Cd value of 0.19 and a four-door coupé embodying irresistible design. Three central features of the "Concept IAA", the steering wheel, instruments and head unit, form an aesthetically pleasing whole of high quality. In the new E-Class, parts of this visionary concept have already become reality -- for example the touch control on the steering wheel and the digital cockpit. At the same time the study provides an outlook on the further development of user interface and user experience design. The vehicle study brings graphics and animations on a par with the quality of Hollywood films into the car for the first time.

The user experience design of both vehicles was developed at Mercedes-Benz Research & Development North America Inc. (MBRDNA) in Silicon Valley. Mercedes-Benz is forging ahead with the networking of the driver, vehicle and outside world, as well as the digitization of the car and mobility in general. MBRDNA headquarters is part of the global R&D network, and has been systematically expanded since 1995. At present the research center in Sunnyvale employs over 240 personnel. Alongside user experience design, development is focussed on mobility of the future, autonomous driving, mobility services, telematics and machine learning.

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...
So, you bought into the current machine learning craze and went on to collect millions/billions of records from this promising new data source. Now, what do you do with them? Too often, the abundance of data quickly turns into an abundance of problems. How do you extract that "magic essence" from your data without falling into the common pitfalls?

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development.

We’ve been doing it for years, decades for some. How many websites have you created accounts on? Your bank, your credit card companies, social media sites, hotels and travel sites, online shopping sites, and that’s just the start.
