WorldDAB‘s latest version of the User Experience (UX) Design Guidelines for auto manufacturers and broadcasters details how to deliver the “best possible digital radio user experience in the car.” It’s based on consumer research carried out in five different countries.
“These guidelines were developed to help broadcasters and automotive OEMs better understand what consumers want from their radio and how best to deliver it,” said Laurence Harrison, chair of the WorldDAB Automotive Group and Market Development Director of Digital Radio UK.
The updated guidelines include: A clearer direction to implement hybrid radio for a great digital radio user experience in connected cars with DAB; sharper signposting to other research and guidance on features such as voice controls, logos, and DAB test routes; and the detail of the design guidance has been updated in several use cases to reflect feedback from car manufacturer partners.
Here are highlights from the guidelines. The full document is available for download here.
