QOE @ Closing event of Innovative Car HMI

The closing event of the Innovative Car – Human Machine Interface (IC-HMI) program took place on July 5th at Forum Braga, Braga, Portugal. This program is the result of the partnership between the University of Minho and Bosch Car Multimedia and involved 30 innovation and research projects since 2015 with a € 55M investment. 

Many innovative solutions were developed in the IC-HMI program, and the main results achieved were presented by each project team. Further, the participants were able to see demonstrations of some of these new technologies, such as the next generation head-up displays, the cockpit of the future, car2x communication, driver monitoring camera, or milk run robot. 

Some members of the Research Group on Quality and Organizational Excellence (RG-QOE) were involved in the IC-HMI program, specifically in the project: ‘Supply Chain Quality Management’ (SCQM). This project explored the integration of quality management practices along the supply chain, aiming to develop some tools to promote the decision making process and improve the Supply Chain performance. The project team involved some professors and researchers from the Department of Production and Systems of University of Minho, as well as some Quality Management and Methods collaborators from Bosch Car Multimedia, Braga.
