Technology Trends in Automotive HMI

Growth Area Analysis by Text Mining, Automotive World 2023 Exhibit Technology



  This report created by MarkLines focuses on a number of recent technical topics surrounding the automotive industry and is based on patent information from the “Technology Information Distribution Service - swimy” obtained by the Toyota Technical Development Corporation (TTDC). The two business areas of TTDC are intellectual property and measurement control solutions. The intellectual property (IP) side of TTDC is involved in the collection and analysis of information on automotive technology developments globally, and provides services such as consulting for research planning, applying for patents in foreign languages, and technical translation.

  We commissioned research of technological trends based on patent information on human-machine interface (HMI) for automobiles, such as displays and instrument panels, which have a significant impact on the marketability of automobiles.

  In 2015, applications were mainly filed by supplier companies, but in recent years there has been an increase in applications by automakers, indicating that they are stepping up their HMI efforts.

  Text mining analysis of growth areas revealed that the words "speech content," "user," "emotion," "multiple," "choice," and "display" were identified as characteristic words in the growth areas.

  In addition, several patent applications have been found that appear to be related to the technology that was exhibited at the recent "Automotive World" exhibition.
