Automotive Workshop – Part II

Nick Piggott 13th December 2016

Improving the User Interface and Experience of Radio in the Car

Tuesday 7th February, 14:30 – 17:00 CET, EBU (Geneva, Switzerland)

Open to everyone (numbers limited – preference to RadioDNS and WorldDAB member organisations)

Presented in conjunction with WorldDAB

Some drivers are finding it difficult to make the switch from analogue to digital radio in the car. This workshop is based around the WorldDAB User Experience group, and their research into drivers’ experiences across Europe.

It will look specifically at User Interfaces and Experience for drivers, and discuss five ways we could collectively make that experience better.
