      TechTalk “Psychology of Mobility”

      Digitization, networking, semi-autonomous driving functions and, above all, the rapidly changing user behavior of people require new mobility concepts. As cars become more advanced and connected, engineers and technicians are not the only ones responsible for putting a vehicle on the street. Human machine interface (HMI) designers, human factor researchers and psychologists are key in making mobility a safe and enjoyable experience. Our experts work together to integrate their research and design into Continental's award winning cutting-edge technology innovations.
