Gamification in automotive

Haptics & gamification is not just an effective way to engage customers & create loyalty. The idea behind it all is using games to strengthen and differentiate the brand. The trends are multimodal HMI & autonomous driving. The "cockpit of the future" will become a new living room, workspace & virtual social environment. Passengers will expect entertainment & gaming in the car. The quality of XR experience will provide a new dimension of brand experience & differentiation between OEMs.
