Beyond HMI

Peter Rössger is the founder and owner of beyond HMI/////. beyond HMI///// fo­cusses on creating knowledge on humans in autonomous driving, HMI concepts, us­ability and user experience for the automotive industry, the industrial internet, mobile machinery and software applications. They perform studies on markets, cultures, usability and user experience. Their strategic market analysis gives deep insights into automotive markets, the future of mobility, usability and user experience trends and technologies. The target is to lift their clients to new levels of business, success and satisfaction. They use their knowledge to develop HMI concepts for custom­ers. This includes development of strategic options, team coaching, development of scenarios, user journeys, use case identification, interaction designs and the roll out of specifications, among others. Peter is assistant professor for human factors at the International School of Management, at the Hochschule Esslingen and the Joanneum Graz (Austria). In 2017 he received the certification as a systemic management coach by the ICF. Until early 2015, Peter was business development director at TES Elec­tronic Solutions GmbH. During his 12 years with Harman Automotive he created HMI concepts for automotive OEMs like Mercedes, Porsche, Toyota, Hyundai, PSA, Ferrari, Chrysler and Harley Davidson. For Daimler, he worked 4 years in driver-vehicle inter­action. Peter holds a doctoral degree in human factors engineering from the Technical University of Berlin.
