Download it: MP3 | AAC | OGG | OPUS

The vehicle industry and its products are undergoing radical change. From the combustion engine to the electric motor. From the island of disconnectivity to the rolling data producer. From manual driving to driver assistance to autonomous vehicles. In addition, there is the influence of the corona pandemic on all areas of the economy, including trade fairs and congresses.

An IAA in these times and in a new location: that will be exciting. In this episode of The Human-Technology Podcast, I will talk about my impressions of the IAA 2021, of the trends that I have seen, and I am optimistic that the IAA and the auto industry will continue. Different and better.

Start With Why: The Golden Circle in HMI Development

Simon Sinek's Golden Circle is a tool or a mindset that is very useful in management, leadership, business, personal development, and life in general. The book title "Start with Why" describes the principle in one sentence. A strong "why" is the engine, a driver, the fixed star for business, work, and life. The "how" and finally the "what" follows from this.
I designed the 3P principle (personality, processes, parameters) of the HMI development and poured it into a workshop. In this podcast episode, I present the two methods and show their connections.

Science: The Creation of Knowledge

There is no such thing as THE ONE science, but a large number of different disciplines. And within the individual disciplines, there are different directions, schools of thought, and views. In this episode of the human-technology podcast, I take a look at the history of science and then out a focus on the two sciences that, in my opinion, have the biggest influence on the design of human-technology interaction. Small spoiler: one of these disciplines focuses on humans, the other on technology.

Don't Stand so Close to Me: About Closeness and Distance

Download it: MP3 | AAC | OGG | OPUS

Technology is very close to us, it gets on us. Or even into the body. That has advantages, makes sense, creates value. But it also creates a dull, negative feeling, insecurity, and fear. Using three automotive technologies as examples, two of which generate or use closeness, one distance, I discuss the closeness-distance relationship between humans and technology.

About this podcast

It's about the relationship between humans and technology, about the design of technology. It's about how we can get our lives back by dropping technology addiction. Technology has two big problems: it's difficult to access and it's addicting. I want to make my listeners' lives better by opening their eyes to the design and use of technology. My goal is to change the way you look at the world and make it a better place.
